They were able to meet with the support group that grew out of the original hospital donations, as well as take a tour of the Lusaka hospital itself. First, the bra is fitted to make sure the remaining breast is supported correctly.
That may not sound like a huge difference to someone who doesn't wear mastectomy forms all day, but there's a very large difference in one ounce of weight over a painful scar and one pound of weight pushing into that scar.
Perhaps the Mx bra has been pressing on a sensitive spot and has caused those symptoms.
Post-surgery After surgery, it is important to get your range of motion back in your arm. I've hand-washed my microbead forms, squeezed them into various tightly pocketed bras to test them, worn them extensively, and so far not a bead has escaped.
This support group now not only provides emotional services, but also works to educate about breast cancer prevention. Put a little of something you'd feel safe with, anything from baby wash to Wool-wash oh alright, you know the brand I mean.
To help control the pouring of the microbeads, I sawed off the bottom of a pill bottle and attached by rubber bands the remaining capped tube to a stretchy fabric bag full of the microbeads. If you're not familiar with this sort of fleece, it's normally found in the interfacing section of your fabric store.
The 'back' pieces will now be flesh color on one side and white fleece on the other side, like these two below with one flipped over. I am still sore and it's bothersome.
I will wear this bra as long as I can tolerate then I'll take it off. My bundle looks like this, but you may find another kind that works as well. We have provided caring, personal service to post mastectomy women for over 17 years.
I have arthritis in my neck and can attest to the fact that my pain there isn't nearly as bad on the days I wear my own custom made lightweight forms, as it is on the days I wear the purchased silicone ones, or even the somewhat lighter weight purchased foam 'leisure forms' that I once wore most of the time.

We do not sell breast forms made in China. Be sure to keep a vacuum cleaner near you and already plugged in while you're working, because once these things get ground into your carpet, they're not coming out easily. Click here to learn more about mastectomy.

There are several types of breast cancer, though some are very rare. The most common form in a woman’s lobules (the part of the breast where milk develops) or in the ducts (the tiny tubes that deliver milk to the nipple).
Learn about the different types of silicone offered by ABC. Silicone is deemed a safe material to use in the production of an external breast prosthesis.
