Hi Jojo0807

 

I wonder if you would like to speak with one of our experts on the free Helpline, 0808 800 6000.

Diep Flap Surgery - Has anyone paid for private surgery (no insurance) to reduce wait times?

Hi I have chosen to have bilateral mastectomy  with immediate diep reconstruction but my BC clinic can not perform it. I have been referred back to my GP to refer me to Charing Cross but my BC says it will delay the operation for another 6-8 weeks. And I haven’t even been referred yet! 

I really want surgery sooner than that. Has anyone paid for this operation privately outside of insurance? Is that even possible?

I have Stage 1 Grade 2 IDC in left breast and large area of DCIS in right.
