Re: Healthy breast removal

I finished radiotherapy 2 weeks ago so i have to wait unfortunately. 

Make sure your ask about second MX, but make sure you do what's right for you. I'm  sure i read some where that anyone who has an MX is entitled to reconstruction and all options should be available. .. i don't  see why  a second MX wouldn't  be included in that but you may have to fight for it.

Re: Healthy breast removal

Hi Roxanne. Big hug on its way back to you. Sounds like you are in a similar situation. My Right mx was June last year. Had first mammogram Tuesday and will have an appointment to see surgeon within next 2 weeks. Can you ask to see your surgeon earlier?

Re: Healthy breast removal

Ollybobs, i'm sending you a Very VERY large hug. I'm assuming you're had a MX without reconstruction, how long ago??

I'm asking because I was an H cup and as you say "am very aware of my size and shape and that people are looking at me" so i opted for MX with immediate reconstruction. So now i have an H cup and a D cup and feel very lope sided and it's very noticeble.

I wasn't given a prosthesis but i have been told that when everything settles down i can have a reduction to my healthy breast. However, i don't see my surgeon until early 2019.

I suggest you call your MDT and tell them how you feel xx
