Well i was just diagnosed with it from the doctor, Ive noticed it for awhile, I just thought I was fat, but after I lost alot of weight and noticed it more I thought wat the heck, So I went to the doctor it isnt really bad, But You can definentally tell because its puffy... But now im depressed, I don't even like having my shirt off looking at myself... yet alone take it off when other people are around. And I heard the only option is surgey but I don't want to take the risks, So I guess hopefully here I can learn to live with it. Is there anything that has helped you all cope with it? Thanks.

Also another question, can it keep on "growing"? Ive had it for a couple years but I recently just noticed it bigger... but it could be fat?

Nukem....

The only way I coped with it was to cover it up with big baggy (multiple) shirts :(. As is the 'norm' with most gyne vics.

I 'chose' not to participate in many sports activities, swim parties and going to the beach. I avoided any activity that involved a 'change room'. In the last few years prior to my gyne surgery, I got somewhat brave and joined the gym and the hockey team at work. Change rooms.... YIKES!!!   :-/ :o :-/

It's tough 'coping' with gyne. Good Luck!
