Sexuality, femininity and intimacy – Debbra


Debbra felt strongly that care for breast cancer patients needed to include more support for couples.


I, never read anything, so maybe there’s a way, maybe there’s a sex therapist that can give some views on how to change the intimacy process when you’re missing parts. Because, that’s what… you feel you’re missing parts. Especially as a double, you don’t have any stimulation on the breasts anymore and you don’t feel a lot depending on how your scars heal and how much scar tissue you have and stuff like that. So it’s even with big ones, they don’t feel the same. That kind of stuff. So something, and I don’t even know whereabouts to go to get that information, because I never thought to look it up. But I think it should be something that is discussed and something that’s brought up sooner rather than later. Because if you can ease into it, then it doesn’t become such an issue later on.
