Terrible back, shoulder and neck pain due to breast size. It's making me feel depressed and hopeless
Posted , 2 users are following.
My boobs are far too big, i wear a 38K but am popping out of it. They're heavy and cause pain if i am stood or walking for longer than a few minutes. My bra digs in and rubs so i find it unbearable but, a 40K is too big and rubs under my armpit. I had physio last year for back pain, he wrote a letter to my GP to say there was not much he could do as in his opinion it was caused by my heavy boobs. I went to see a GP about the possibility of a breast reduction but he basically laughed in my face until i started crying. He told me it would be unlikely to happen but that i could go through an "uncomfortable process" to try to get funding and even then i would be rejected. I was so upset that i didn't go back, I feel absolutely hopeless, i even asked him what would happen if i tried to hack them off myself and he said "they would probably stitch them back up". I just don't know what to do. I'm in no position to pay for the surgery myself but i can't cope with the pain anymore. Exercise is horrendously painful so the weight has crept on (i do go the gym but it's a struggle and i've only lost 2 stone in a year!). It's affecting my work because i can't walk far (i'm a support worker) and i'm at a desk for half the day. I don't sleep well either, my boobs can feel like they're suffocating me at times and if i lay on my side i wake up with pain and bruising.......i feel like i've gone on a bit! I'm really at the end of my tether. Any advice?
