I live in a rural area and almost 5 years ago I was diagnosed with breast cancer. Thankfully, after having a mastectomy and the removal of almost all my lymph glands I am still free and clear of all cancer.
I have been on a waiting list in Brisbane at the RBH for reconstruction but as yet had no luck. Almost made it to the table last year but it didn't eventuate.
At the end of this year I am hoping to move to Townsville and am wondering if this procedure is done up there under the public system, what the waiting list is like and if anyone has had this procedure done up there. We're you happy with the results?
Can anyone recommend a good surgeon under the private system?
I am so keen to have this done but am a little nervous about how it will turn out?
Any feedback would be appreciated!
