How/when to contact plastic surgeon?

Evening ladies


I have just finished rads after wle and  snb in September.


I need some reconstruction work and am not sure  of the  protocol with regards talking to a  ps. Do I need a referral and from whom?


I know I cannot have any surgery immediately became of the rads but can I speak to a ps to discuss options and perhaps go on the waiting list? And can I specify which ps I would prefer?


Thank you for any advice.

Hi Mary. Do you have a breast care nurse? I should have thought she would be your first port of call and she should be able to organise any consultations for you. Good luck!
