After promising that he would give me a new breast 4 months after my mastectomy, I just heard from my PS office that he "no longer performs that procedure" -- the timing is suspicious. I had sent a letter explaining a particular disorder I have that means often standard treatments must be somewhat modified, and then this call. I thought by the end of July this Humpty Dumpty would be whole again -- not the same, but whole. I am devastated. I really don't know what to do. I want autologous surgery, can't have any of the ab ones, there are so few surgeons who perform the others and fewer that the insurance company will deal with (or candidly, that the doctors will deal with my insurance!). Sorry for the whine, but ... oh, hell, there is nothing easy about this damnable disease, its treatment or aftermath. Just needed to vent, I guess. Thanks for the ear ...
