Hi Grumpy and Carla,
As your posts were a few months ago I am wondering if you have had any progress with the lipo? I had a wle and reduction to good side in 2009, followed by chemo and rads. My surgeon did wonderful surgery but I always felt that she did not take very much away and I am still large. I was lucky enough to be seen by her a few months ago. She explained the difficulties connected with further traditional surgery (wound healing etc) and also the particular probs associated with surgery to the radiotherapy side. She was clearly struggling with what to do and consulted her colleague who suggested the lipo. I had a consultation with him and he went through the options again. I am keen to have the lipo but there is no assurance that the skin will retract after the procedure.
Has anyone any further experience or info? I go back to see the surgeon ina few weeks.
Hope everyone well and best wishes to those going through now what I went through 3 years ago. There is light at the end of the tunnel and I am fit and well, working, playing and getting on with life! Sheila xxxxxxxxxx
