Re: New breast reconstruction guidelines

Just looked at the date of the guideline thread, it's sometime in 2012. I then looked at the dates of the other threads that had not had replies, highlighted in a box on the right. Why are they being highlighted when the majority are very old? I can't believe the original posters will be checking in for a reply after, in some cases , years have passed.

Re: New breast reconstruction guidelines

Hi,
Couldn't access the link 'summary of the guidelines for patients' when clicked on it . Could it be cos I'm using an iPad.? So can't say if would have been useful. Had my recon last week.

New breast reconstruction guidelines

New guidelines for UK teams providing oncoplastic breast reconstruction have just been launched, along with a summary of the guidelines for patients, by the British Association of Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgeons (BAPRAS), Association of Breast Surgery (ABS) and Breast Cancer Care.

The guidelines aim to ensure all breast cancer patients are well informed about their reconstruction and can expect to receive the best care and support wherever they’re treated.

You can read more about how Breast Cancer Care has helped develop these new guidelines here http://www.breastcancercare.org.uk/news/blog/new-breast-reconstruction-guidelines

The guidelines were discussed on this morning's Woman's Hour on Radio 4, when Emma Pennery (Breast Cancer Care's Clinical Director) spoke to Jenni Murray. There was also a clip of Mandy, a Breast Cancer Care volunteer, talking about her reconstruction experience. You'll be able to listen the programme again on the Woman's Hour website http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b01nxvhw

If you've had reconstructive surgery, would these guidelines have made a difference to your experience?
