Plastic surgeon appointment

Just a quick one to let you all know I got a call from the plastic surgeon who is doing the breast reconstruction. I’ve made an appointment to meet him on Monday at midday. It’s a half hour consultation to make a decision on the surgery we’re going for and to be examined to make sure it’s doable. I can wait a few days to make a decision or decide at the meeting.

If I decide straight away then I can go for a surgical pre-assessment (blood test, weight, general health assessment, MRSA test) that day and then they look for a good date for surgery. I may have to get another CT scan to map my vessels and arteries. But I’m going to ask if they can use the one I had done last week.

I’m an “urgent care” patient so the surgery is prioritised and should be 1-2 weeks after the appointment on Monday.

So that’s sorted.

Now I’m off to stare at the stars and learn about expeditions to Mars.

    Just as an FYI – I had to have what was called an MRA with contrast for the surgeon to map where the vessels are in the abdominal area to confirm location as well as make sure those vessels were big enough to use to reconnect the flap tissue once it was moved. I don’t think they’ll be able to re-use what you had done if it’s the one you posted. It’s really no biggie to have that done. I considered it another opportunity to take a nap. 🙂

    If you have any questions before/after your appointment, let me know. In the meantime, go enjoy the stars!! xo

    Oh right Brenda. Was that done with a CT scan? Yeh those scans are no big deal. And I rather enjoy the whiskey glow you get from the contrast dye. Just wanting to speed things up.
