Dating after mastectomy reconstruction


The reconstructed breast will normally stay exactly where it was the day of the surgery.With Balance™ products the natural breast can be lifted, and fullness can be added, to make breasts even and balanced.Maybe it reminds you of your mom or your aunt or your grandma who bravely battled this disease. You probably don’t picture a 29-and-a-half-year-old, green smoothie-making, vegetarian-eating, marathon-running, healthy young woman. But the memory of my doctor saying to me, "By the way, we should talk about when you want to have your ovaries removed as well" is the one thing I remember the way I remember where I was on 9/11. When I found out during a routine doctor’s appointment that I had a lump in my left breast, my plans for having a family evaporated. I do occasionally go out on dates, when I can find the time. But because of my diagnosis, there’s this extreme pressure to move so fast that I can barely stand to move forward with anyone at all.



A woman in need of special products after breast reconstruction should not hesitate to find a product that will work for her, to restore her shape, and with it, her self-confidence.

I wasn’t sure I’d ever get the opportunity to even meet someone one day. I’m not religious, but I do understand that I have to find a way to come to peace with this.
