I'm having laproscopy for torn cartlidge in my right shoulder (yes, right handed). I've had resconstructive knee surgery before so I think I'm pretty prepared for recovery etc. but what I don't know is more girl related and the dreaded bra on the surgery spot question....I've read other posting about how difficult it is but that was with rotator cuff, actually "cutting" surgery - any feedback as far the laproscopy and recovery??

Any excuse not to wear a bra works for me.

Sorry, I know you wanted a more serious answer. I guess I would just make sure the bra fit comfortably and loosen the strap so that it was not bitting into the shoulder.
Hopefully someone else will come along with even better advice.
Good luck with your surgery and a speedy recovery.

Hi there,

Haven't had this surgey myself, but both my mom and sister had it done.  My sister needed both shoulders done actually.  They both recovered very well, needed some therapy to help with range of motion, but all in all, they did great.  I do remember that the bra thing was big issue for my sister.  Not so much for the strap hitting the surgery site..., she could pad those areas, but she really needed front closures. It was so much easier for her to get dressed once she changed to that type of bra.

Hope all goes well!

Hi Ledbet,

How about a sleep bra? The kind that is all just soft and strechy? When my shoulder is killing me ,thats what I use cause it's easy to get on and off. I've actually pulled it all the way down and stepped out of it a couple of times when i couldn't lift my arm. Good luck with your up comming surgery! Joy


Count your Blessings, Joy
