Mastectomy or Lumpectomy – Soft Undergarments Needed

Something often forgotten in the shock of getting a cancer diagnosis are some of the little things which become big things.  One of these is proper garments after the surgery, whether it is a mastectomy or a lumpectomy.  With either surgery, you will have drains and bandaging.  Nowadays, you are sent home from the hospital within a day so the drains are still there and need to be managed.

Having a proper mastectomy camisole makes life much easier.  There is room for the bandages and a drain pouch so you can be discreetly mobile.  The camisoles are made of soft cotton, some with velcro fastenings at the front if you are having mobility issues with your arm after node dissection.  Also some have no seams at the side eliminating the friction on incisions.  These mastectomy camisoles are then convertible to wear with breast forms once you have healed from the surgery.
