"Breast Cancer Care"

About: Kettering General Hospital

I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer two years ago. Since then I have had a lumpectomy, chemotherapy, radiotherapy, a breast reduction a nipple reconstruction and am awaiting a nipple tattoo. Apart from the news being devastating I can honestly say I have remained upbeat about the whole episode. This is due to the amazing care and consideration I have experienced from everybody involved in my treatment. My consultant is fantastic and cares what your outcome is like. At every stage I have had clear information and have always been made to repeat back what I have understood.

I have nothing but praise for all the departments I have come into contact with - so if you are diagnosed rest assured you are in good hands.
