Breast reduction for health reasons

(1 Post)

I am 36j, BMI 25 - could do with losing 9lbs but know from past weight loss experience that although my band size would reduce my cup size would not. I get acute pain from intercostal nerve where pressure from wearing a bra pinches the nerve. If I have loosen the band to relieve the symptoms then I get neck and back strain. This has been going on for decades and consequently I experience very low mood. I have tried everything - professional bra fitting, physio, regular exercise but it's a strain getting through the day. Really reluctant to go such a radical route but feel at the end of my tether. W W Y D?
