Dating after mastectomy
Post-cancer body changes and body image issues are real. • Every scar, every bald head, every dark circle, every prosthetic breast, and every reflection in a mirror that you might not recognize anymore tells a story. As I talked about this article, he shared that he was intimate with a women who had a double mastectomy.He said, “I was not mortified or shocked…more than anything I had questions, but I felt uncomfortable asking them because I didn’t want to dwell on what might be a painful subject.” Do not let lack of communication sabotage what could be a wonderful relationship with a loving man.There is something so liberating about everything being out in the open.It’s like any ideal of perfection I could have ever hoped for went out the window with my breasts.
If you watched “Sex and the City”, you’ll remember that Sarah Jessica Parker never would do a nude scene so every time she had sex on the show she’d have a bra on.
I talked with a handful of women who only have sex with bras on to not reveal the scars or lack of breasts.
Don’t hid by that bra anymore, swing it from your ceiling fan, feeling sexy and carefree.
I was shocked by the men who posted pictures of themselves with their shirts off, selfies exposing their six-pack abs.
I quickly passed up these profiles as I assumed that they were looking for that kind of perfection in return and would never be interested in an extensively scarred, nipple-less woman.
