I have now completed a second course of BCG immunotherapy for the bladder cancer and have been feeling tired, not to mention working hard to finish my next book (click here for a preview.)
Recently I've been getting up in the mornings, putting on a track suit and sitting straight down to work after my son has gone off to school. However I haven't been bothering to don my mastectomy bra complete with prosthesis. After all when you work from home and you're the only one in the office, being a track-suited mono-boober is not too damaging a fashion deficiency.
After a few weeks I began to get terrible aching in my neck and shoulder on the mastectomy side and eventually I worked out what the problem was ... my remaining, real boob was dragging me down and sideways and causing an imbalance, straining my muscles etc.
No sooner had I recommenced wearing a mastectomy bra containing the dreaded pink blob, than my neck and shoulder ache disappeared.
The moral in this story?
Don't let yourself get dragged down by a real t*t.
Happy Holiday Shopping!
