Hi all, I'm trying to get a quote for some private reconstruction costs but it's proving to be time consuming and I'm still waiting for the admissions team to get back to me. In the meantime I thought I'd ask here if anyone has paid and how much. I've already had DIEP stage 1 on the NHS but I need the second operation which would be nipple reconstruction to one breast and lipo to make it smaller. Has anyone paid for a nipple reconstruction and if so, how much was it? And lipo? I know it's a long shot but thanks!

Hi all, Just wondering if there is anyone out there who can tell me about cancer treatment in Spain? I'm currently in the UK but I used to live in Barcelona (still have my residency). I was planning a move back to Barcelona but then I got my cancer diagnosis and I ended up postponing the plan to move until after treatment was over. I'm coming to the end of my treatment (chemo, surgery, rads and herceptin) now but I get conflicting feelings about the move because whilst I know that it's not going to make me happy to stay long term in the UK (and after cancer you really crave happiness) I'm worried about doing my follow-up abroad because I'll need Tamoxifen and probably scans I imagine and even though my Spanish is great I always used to get so nervous doing 'official procedures' there because of the bureaucracy. If there is anyone there that could tell me about treatment in Spain and whether it's easy to get things like Tamoxifen I'd be really grateful. I still have my tarjeta sanitaria.
