Breast surgery involving removal of a breast (mastectomy) is difficult for women physically and emotionally. It is normal for women to go through various stages of acceptance and grief regarding the removal of a breast. Some women choose to wear a breast prosthetic and mastectomy bra, while others do not. It is a personal choice.
