Hi all,  anyone have experience with plastic surgery? After 1st appointment with them, how long to be waited for surgery? I am so worry as I noticed ER/PR+ on 24 Apr, been informed the choices for me after mastectomy. During the time they still waiting result of Her2 to see I have to do treatment first or surgery first. Last week, I noticed I have to do surgery first but I select to use my own tissue to do reconstruction. So that they booked Plastic Surgeon at another hospital and the breast surgeon only handle if I don't do reconstruction or implant surgery. Now I have 1st appointment with Plastic Surgeon on 3rd June and they told me if priority case it will take 4-6weeks, soon case is 3months, normal case 9month+......I am worrying as my treatment plan need to be waited after surgery and test from sentinel lymph node. I am IDC stage 2 cells grade 3. I don't know in this case I have delayed my treatment plan?  I am worrying seems counting from the beginning......My 1st visit in GP on 3rd Apr, 1st visit in Breast Clinic on 11 Apr.

  • Hi  and a very warm welcome to the online community which I hope you'll find is both an informative and supportive place to be.

    I don't have the experience you're looking for but noticed that your post hadn't had any replies yet. Responding to you will 'bump' it back to the top of the discussion list again.

    I'm sure some other forum members will be along soon to share their experience of plastic surgery with you.
