I know it can be quite overwhelming when thinking about your options for prophylactic surgery following a positive BRCA test. You may find it useful to speak with some of our volunteers who have been in a similar situation on the Someone Like Me service. We can put you in touch with women who have had a genetic diagnosis themselves and made decisions around surgery and reconstruction and can discuss things such as lipofill and implants with you. If you would like to use the Someone Like Me service please do get in touch by email on:firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling the service directly on 0114 263 6490.
Service Worker (Someone Like Me).
I am sorry you are having to face all these decisions and I am sure if any users have experience of this they will be along to offer their support.
In the meantime you can always call our helpline on 0808 800 6000 who will be able to talk through these decisions and offer a friendly ear. The opening hours are below.
