9 years post op..think I need a refresh!

Hi all

New to forum, and looking for some recommendations really.  

I’m 21 years post diagnosis (diagnosed age 27) and 9 years post reconstruction surgery (Bilateral latissimus dorsi flap) but I think my left implant has failed.  It’s hard and rippled, and has been for some time but I’ve lived with it.  I’m ready to start thinking about getting it sorted, but the surgeon who did my original op has retired, and I don’t know who the best ones are now as I’ve been ‘out of the system’. 

If it’s allowed, can anyone recommend a surgeon please in the North West of England? Or private message me? 

Many thanks in advance xx

Hi dmk


It’s Emily here from Breast Cancer Care.


While you’re waiting for replies on here, I just wanted to let you know that we have a telephone volunteer who had a similar experience and had further surgery after their latissismus dorsi.


If you’d like to chat to them, feel free to give us a call on 0345 077 1893 and we can put you in touch.


Best wishes

Emily at Breast Cancer Care

Thanks Emily I will do
