The change in your breast shape will take some time to get used to.
You will already have had a lot to cope with, from the initial diagnosis, treatment| and surgery| for breast cancer. This is yet another stage. At first your new breast might not really feel like ‘you’ - it will take some time to get used to your new shape. If you have a partner|, it may also take some time for you to feel comfortable talking about your surgery and showing your new breast.
Breast reconstruction surgery can cause many different emotions| and feelings. Many women are pleased with the result of the surgery, but may still have feelings of loss for their previous appearance and sense of health.
Many people and organisations| can help you talk through and deal with your feelings and emotions. Your breast cancer nurse can also discuss your situation with you. You can also talk to us|.
