How old is your prosthesis?

We often see ladies who are wearing prostheses that are really long in the tooth. Sometimes they are held together with sticky tape and they have developed cracks or splits and are leaking. You do know that Medicare will provide a rebate (up to $400 ) every two years for a new prosthesis?

And when you consider that the prosthesis has a two year guarantee, well it makes sense to replace it every two years so that you will always have the protection of a manufacturer's warranty!

So don't be caught out like this lady.....

Hello Debra.

Many thanks for posting my new breast prosthesis to me. It arrived this morning and I do appreciate the free postage too! I just wanted to say that I should have listened to you when you advised me to replace the old one when I was in your shop a few months ago. At the time it was very sticky with cracks appearing and you suggested to me then that it was well past its use by date. And at the time I thought I might get another year or two out of it.

To my horror I found out you were right when it sprung a big leak last week as I waited outside my grand daughter's school to collect her. I wondered why this lady was staring at me when finally she came over to me and asked if I was okay as a large dark stain had started to spread across my navy blouse.. it was the silicone leaking out I discovered when I returned home. Although as soon as I saw the wet patch I knew exactly what had happened, but having to explain it to a much younger woman was very embarrassing.

Next time, I will replace it when it is due and I am entitled to a Medicare rebate for it. Once again, many thanks for the speedy service and your expertise.

Your faithfully,
