Life with one breast is something I'm getting used to.
My clothes hang differently now.
The right side of every outfit looks flat or even concave depending on what top I wearing.
I'm not using a prothesis or planning on having reconstructive surgery.
I've only recently started using my cross over the chest purse again.
It rubs against my scar which was very irritating.
I bought a new swimsuit with a less revealing neckline.
I've stuffed the right side with quilt batting.
Sleeping on my right side causes my left breast to fall over to the right side and because there is no right breast to support it, I place a pillow against my chest to hold the left breast in place.
Running feels incredibly weird! I used to bounce equally, now I bounce lopsided.
I tried on my bras and decided to forgo those forever. Tank tops with built in bras are far more comfortable and help keep the right nipple from rubbling against my shirts.
On the very brightest side of having the mastectomy is that the tumour is no longer part of me!
I thank God daily for that.
