7 Months Post Opt ……thinking of removing !!- United Kingdom, GB
I'm turning 31 on jan 5th and last year may I...
Saw my doc yesterday
I think I'm finding it so hard because I don't have a lot of family support right now so feeling somewhat lonely. I'm sure I'll find a peace soon x
Appointment no help
Well he felt my breast push on the lump and said they were fine, he then said he is getting over a sore throat and had glands come up in his neck? this was not helpful and it felt like he was being patronising. He said he would do a scan but said he was 99% sure i'm fine and that I would have to pay for it not to mention it is only something like 95% accurate and may not show anything. I explained my symptoms which are similar to autoimmune disease, I have a fever on and off too. but again he pretty much said its in my head. I started to feel very distress at this point as I felt like know professional cares, I started to put my clothes on as he kept talking and I just replied ….yes ok to everything. I was feeling really ill and confused.
I asked him that if there was a problem like a rupture or something how much would it cost to remove them. I kept very polite and paid compliments to his work but this did not help, he became a little abrupt with me and said he did not know how much. If I was to get them removed I would look awful and horrible and he quickly dismissed that idea. Instead he said all the women was happy with his work (bear in mind, I never said I wasn't) and only one or two come back complaining and most of them have psychological problems. He said made I can't handle having bigger breast and I need to speak to someone or maybe i'm depressed (wow).
This was a lot to take in, I wish I had recorded it and will record in the future. I am so tired, confused, upset, and thinking how will I afford anything. I feel so guilty about doing this to myself but keep trying to stay positive.
I will be going back to my GP to ask for a MRI which she was reluctant about and said I should see my surgeon as after all "you paid all that money" …..but he has said to go back to my GP????????
I have 3 years aftercare with transform but if this is what it means then omg!!!
I'm sure i'll have something positive to say next time….just wanted to say DR Khan did do a good job but I feel he could of handle me better. I went in not wanting any trouble just advice.
So this is where I am
I've been back and forth to my docs who is treating me for raynaurd's ? She has done loads of blood test and they have come back negative which is good but my doc now thinks most of the things are related to stress, I'm not convinced. I have a hospital appointment tomorrow at the breast clinic to check out this lump. Hopefully everything will be fine, my joint pain is getting worse but going to work is actually helping me keep busy and happy as I work in a school with energetic children lol.
I've done some research on explant but I'm not going to lie I am pooing my pants at the thought. I have spoke to my doc about it and I am trying to save at the same time. I know I should go back to my surgeon but feel to weak to put up a fight.
Right now I'm feeling more positive most days, before there was apart of me that wanted to keep these things as I am scared of surgery, recovery and outcome. But I miss being healthy, I miss dancing around with my little ones and not getting out of breath or burning.
All you women are so brave and I no I will need to be too x
So I'll keep u updated.....spk soon
Dr Khan is a very good surgeon and was very popular. He is quick witted but has little time to see patients. I saw him about four times before my opt as I was so nervous and he answered all my questions. I will be going back to him with this problem so I'll keep you updated.
