Thanks for all the suggestions girls. Those of you who have mentioned surgeons by name, it gets *** out, so you need to PM me the names.
I am seeing a surgeon in Nottingham in 2 weeks who is highly recommended. I am in Yorkshire so London, Bath & Norfolk are a bit too far.
I will probs go see the lady in Manchester as well though.
Any suggestions within 80 miles or so of west yorkshire would be ok, but further than that may be difficult with check ups x
Hello Cath, So sorry to read your story, what a nightmare. If it is of any help, I had inplants put in about 14 yrs ago. 2 yrs ago we were just cosidering whether they should be replaced due to their age, when my original surgeon, wrote to me to advise that they were of the PIP variety and that I should get a CT scan. which I did, but got a bit of a shock, PIP implants were fine, but I had DCIS in left breast, anyway had lft Mx, temporary implant & inflation, which was replaced a year ago, and then In March this year had reduction to my rt breast. Not sure where in the country you are, I am near Bath. If it would help i would be happy to give you the name of the surgeon in London ( Private) or my team locally(NHS) would recommend them to any one.
Do let us know how you get on.
Sending a bundle of warm Huggles. Jenny.
Thanks for the help ladies & the PM's...keep the sugestions coming please. I'm going to see 2 or 3 surgeons before I decide...I'm really wary now after the mess that my last surgeon made.
The reconstruction should be the bit at the end that makes you feel better & mne has made me feel worse....I look horrendous & am really upset by whats happened.
Long story, but I'll try & give you a short version. I had a full mastectomy June 2013. I had already had a breast augmentation so when my surgeon did my MX he left in my original implant, intending to exchange it later.
In November 2013 I was due for my reconstruction. On the day it was a different surgeon who I had never met. The end result was horrendous. I have seen a solicitor & the NHS have admitted liability. I need further surgery, but am wanting a new surgeon. If any of you have had great results of implant reconstruction & uplift to other breast. I would love a recomendation. Please PM me with your surgeons names if you dont mind.
Hope you can help me here ladies as this has been a nightmare.
