Re: Reconstruction wait

Hi 

I totally understand how you're feeling about surgery. I too feel the same you can only gauge how you're feeling when the time comes I would suggest stay on the list & then revaluate maybe the best option.

My hospital called me to say they are now conducting surgery again so I need to ensure I quarentine as well as my carers for 2 wks & then take a covid test 2 days before op. I was furloughed & now made redundant so I can't persue this option now I live alone in private rented accomadation with the uncertainty covid has turned my world apart.

Re: Reconstruction wait

Hi i was having a dieppe reconstruction but have now been told it could possibly be 2021 before they even start to do any reconstructions at all. I’m under nottingham breast institute which is a leading breast cancer hospital. Although I’m getting used to how i look and not sure i want to put myself through anymore pain.......

good luck x

Reconstruction wait

Can you tell me how long I may have to wait for reconstruction after my mastectomy? I know the waiting list may be even longer at the moment.....
