I had a completeley botched LD in Swindon - easy to determine the surgeons names although cannot mention them here.
I think delayed recons are always done at the Royal, in the plastic surgery dept. I am having mine there on Feb 24 with Graham Offer. I have heard good things about him. I have seen his handiwork, a lady around the corner from me had the tummy op (the one that doesn't use the muscle I think) and her recon looks fabulous. I will be having the LD flap. He seems a really nice man, with a good bedside manner, which was important to me as my breast surgeon & onc were both old school doctors - maybe good clinically, but hopelss bedside manner. I would not be doing this now if I didn't feel comfortable with him.
Hi Jan, thanks for letting me know. I will probably be getting implants. Does that mean it will be at the royal?
I live in Hinckley and had my mastectomy with immediate reconstruction done at Glenfield Hospital, we are not allowed to mention particular surgeons names, I made that mistake once.
What kind of reconstruction are you having? mine was LD, I think if you want anything different you would have to go to the Royal.
Overall I am pleased with the results, I get a tight feeling across my back quite often where the muscle was taken from but I can cope.
Just ask if I can be of any further help.
Hi, I am would really like to to talk or meet with women who have had surgery in Leicester.
I had my mastectomy and temp recon down south but now live back in Leicester where I am originally from. The waiting list is so long down south and I have waited so long that I am considering getting it done up here.
As it is such a huge thing I would love to know about any surgeons up here and if women have been happy with their recon.
Please contact me!!
