I had a mastectomy three weeks today , right breast and I am just starting to do some research on reconstruction, but not looking at having it done till the end of the year. I did not hve an expander put in ,the Dr just left some extra skin.
I was told it is covered by medicare , if so do you have to go on a waiting list and do you get to choose your surgeon?.
If I want to have it done in a private hospital and choose the Dr I want and pay for it , can I still claim some of it back from medicare?.
Also I would be having it done in Sydney , has any one had reconstruction done in Sydney and what Dr did you have?. So many to choose from just want to make sure on the Dr .
What type of reconstruction is the best to have?.
I am having a good day today more positive.Have been such a mess emotionally so many emotions real rollercoaster ride. No tears today YAH first time in a while. Thanks Debbie .xxx
