Using prosthesis post mastectomy

Last reply: 8 months ago

Hi, I am looking at post surgery options (risk reducing double mastectomy), one of which is no reconstruction. I would like to talk to someone who has gone this route, and hear about their experience and advice with wearing or not wearing 2 prosthesises.
