How to increase self esteem after surgery?


Question from Skylar: I've always liked my breasts. In fact I told hubby that I wear revealing shirts to draw attention away from other parts of my body like my huge hips. How can I make my self esteem rise so I can feel attractive again?
Answers - Leslie R. Schover, Ph.D. Just as you always loved your breasts, I am sure there are other qualities about yourself that have been important to you. Of course, losing your breast is a very significant loss, but as a whole person it is important to remember all of the things about you that are still valuable and loveable.

On Wednesday, February 21, 2001, our Ask-the-Expert Online Conference was called Intimacy and Sexuality. Leslie R. Schover, Ph.D., and Marisa Weiss, M.D. answered your questions about how breast cancer diagnosis and treatment affect your sex life.
