I had my drain out today and moved from a binder to surgical bra and soft boob for the first time. The softie is a bit firm and I'm feeling the pressure on my wound. Does anyone have any tips to improve comfort? I might change to a different bra and see if that helps, but any tips in case it doesn't would be greatly appreciated.
I also forgot to ask if I sleep in it - any advice?
Hi LuckyD, I haven’t had a mastectomy myself, but noticed your post hadn’t had any replies yet, so I hope you don’t mind me popping in to chat.
I would think that it is overly sore at the moment, after having the drain removed, and I hope it is something that may ease with time. I did have a little look on the site and did find a recent post which you may find helpful. There are a couple of recommendations for softies and bras that you may find helpful. I’ll pop a link below.
Hopefully someone who has had personal experience of this will pop along soon and share their experience with you.
Wishing you all the best in your recovery.
I came out of my binder today ay and started to wear a post surgical bra with a softee. Although not painful, it did feel rather strange and a bit uncomfortable and so I have taken out some of the filling and that has really helped.
Take care and hope your recovery goes smoothly love and hugs xxxx
