Do I need a special bra?Thu, 07/05/2018 - 9:01PM
I'm scheduled for my LVAD on 7/17/18. I have done a lot of research but can't seem to find much about bras. I'm a big breasted woman and worry that the weight of my breasts will pull on the incision and either tear it or at least increase the pain. I've seen special post surgical bras that are front closure with Velcro instead of the regular hooks but I don't know if I really need one. Front closure are supposed to be easier to put on after surgery but will a regular one rub against the incision? What have others done? Thanks for any help or suggestions you have.
