As you and the people close to you get used to your body changes, you may begin to think about seeing other people. If you have visible changes to your appearance, you may worry about other people’s reactions.
Occasionally, some people may make insensitive remarks or unwelcome suggestions. But you’ll probably find most people take far less notice of you than you expected. Other people will soon respond to you as a person and not to your appearance.
Learning how to cope with social situations helps build up your confidence. This will help you slowly get back to your usual day-to-day activities. This can include returning to work or doing any hobbies or sports you did before.
