Hi I am 55 and a 11 years BC survivor,as a celebration of being a 10 yr survivor i decided to have a right breast tram flap reconstruction which went horribly wrong,I wasn’t healing and after 5 months the discovered a large blood clot in my stomach,the surgeon who did the operation went overseas for a cpl of months after the initial operation so had no support from him and he no longer does surgery on public patients,so what I have ended up with is a B cup instead of a d cup and the left side is about an E cup and very saggy and heavy,I really hate looking at myself in a mirror let alone let anyone else see it,I am on a disability pension for bipolar and believe me this is making my depression even worse,please help
Hi Carol, I am so sorry to hear about your reconstruction that went wrong. I would suggest that you really need to express your concerns to your original surgeon to give him the opportunity to make it right. If you have no luck there, perhaps you could arrange a consult with another couple of surgeons to try to find one who can give you advice as to what your options are from here. Check out our list of Australian Plastic Surgeons and click on the location that best suits you.
Your local doctor might also be able to help you with any other issues you might have or give you suggestions as to what action to take.
Best of luck on your journey Carol, I wish you all the best.
