Re: Botched surgery...need a new surgeon

There is a good surgeon in cambridge - supposedly in the top ten in the uk. I believe he has experience of correcting surgeries that have had a poor result. You can pm me if you'd like details? Hope you get things sorted in a way that you're happy with. None of us need more stress to add to what we've already had to deal with. Good luck.

Hi Cath. Plastics team at the QE in Birmingham were brilliant. Had an implant recon 5 weeks ago, really pleased with it.

Remember you can have the op in one place then transfer to your local hospital for the aftercare. Double-check this with the surgeon, but you want the best surgeon you can find this time around. Good luck

Re: Botched surgery...need a new surgeon

Hi Naz, we did chat last year yes. I have been lucky that the NHS have admitted liability & that I can now go private. I will see a few surgeons before I decide. I hope you are doing well x

Re: Botched surgery...need a new surgeon

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

Re: Botched surgery...need a new surgeon

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.

Re: Botched surgery...need a new surgeon

Hi Cath, I think we chatted last year when things didn't go to plan for you, so I know how devastating this whole experience has been for you. If you remember, I was in the same boat as you sadly. Anyway, I can recommend a surgeon at north staffs hospital in Newcastle under Lyme ( nor sure where you are based geographically) but is this something you need to consider for when you need to have follow up,appointments etc?
The surgeon I have in mind does not do DIEP I don't think, he does do LAT DORSI though, so take your time to decide what is it you want and what you would be best suited to. Defo speak to a few surgeons ! That lady up in wythenshawe, I have heard good stuff about and have seen her on the tv in the past. I also met with her colleague when mine went wrong but he couldn't help me sort the problem out, hence me going to north staffs in the end.

Best of luck

Re: Botched surgery...need a new surgeon

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.

Botched surgery...need a new surgeon

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.
