"Breast Reconstruction...It's your body, not theirs"
About: Royal Hallamshire Hospital Royal Hallamshire Hospital Sheffield S10 2JF
My breast reconstruction has not yet been done due to being let down by the last two surgeons I've seen. My current plastic surgeon is not happy that I will say what is done with my own body and I choose the procedure I wish to have, as I did 13 years ago. Very long story. He does perform this operation on women immediately after mastectomy, with the same BMI as myself, but doesn't want to do it on me. He hasn't answered why that is, just as he hasn't answered many questions. I am not treat as a human being suffering with depression and a deformed breast after cancer. I am a size dd and the surgeons I have seen want me to be smaller. No, this is my body and all I want is to be me, my size. As for making a complaint, well don't bother. The surgeons etc don't want to reply as they don't like complaints and possibly feel insulted. Well we do too. You have to keep calling the complaints to find out what's happening, because they don't keep you updated either. And they call it the caring profession. Joke!
