Fell down on back


Re: Fell down on back

Hi @Simpson 

Thanks for posting.

A fall directly on to your back is unlikely to damage a breast reconstruction, including when an implant has been used.

However, if you are still concerned or have noticed any changes to the reconstructed breast or wounds do contact your breast care nurse so she can arrange for this to be checked. 

Do call our Helpline if you would like to talk this through or have any further questions. Your call will be confidential, and the number is free from UK landlines and all mobile networks.

The number is 0808 800 6000 (Text relay prefix 18001).

If you would like a nurse to call you do complete this form. Ticking the box agreeing to a call back.

Our opening hours are Monday to Friday 9am - 4pm and 9am -1pm on Saturday. Out of hours you can leave a message and we will call you back when we next open.

Best wishes
