Re: reconstruction failure

My implants did not get infected but the one on my cancer side kept moving close to my armpit and it felt like a knife was cutting me. After having them replaced by a new plastic surgeon(the original plastic surgeon said to just wear a bra 24/7--Yuk, especially when he originally said I wouldn't have to wear a bra with the implants) said he would "brace" the new implants. Well, it did not work and after being diagnosed again with BC I decided I would go flat and forget the pain of this.
I'm in my 60'a so that does make a difference and also how you feel about yourself.
Like others have said our boobs do not define who we are. Hugs and Prayers, Ruby from Indiana
