What is my consultant looking for?
By revvix on 23 May 2012
Hello all I saw a consultant today and after he had examined me, he said that I had capsular contracture. So I was sent for a mammogram, and he said the results are inconclusive so he is now sending me for an MRI scan to check that he isn't missing anything. I am a bit worried now, what could he be missing? possibly a rupture (would a mammogram suggest a rupture?) To be honest I just want explant surgery, I was referred on the NHS to a consultant for this purpose - I suppose I am a bit scared that the consultant will say after the MRI, that I just have to live with the pain and refuse to explant.
