My sister was due to go on holiday the ending of July so I seized the opportunity to get myself checked out. On the 9th of August I was told I had breast cancer and would have to have a mastectomy of my left breast.
I decided to undergo the same surgery my sister had opted to have when she returned from holiday in August. On the 20th September 2018 and coincidently my sisters birthday, I underwent a mastectomy of my left breast and reconstruction at the same time, using tissue from my thighs. I underwent my surgery with the support of my sister and my family by my side.
Unfortunately my reconstructive surgery was not successful and I was left with a breast that was not ascetically pleasing to me and also half its original size. This meant I will have to undergo further surgeries in the future to get me the desired size and in the meantime I have to wear a prosthesis. This has left me feeling self conscious and choosing bra's a little distressing.
The launch of LoveRose Lingerie would definitely help boost my confidence. Having a selection of beautiful and well crafted matching underwear would be so empowering and enable me to feel sexy even whilst wearing a prosthesis.
