  • yep lots of forums these days! im a nurse and 2 of our doctors that perform the procedure have also had the surgery done! so must be ok

  • I know of some internet forums where people who have had the procedure gave honest reviews about it, you will have to google though.

  • Ask your doctor and if they can put you in touch with someone who has it and can give you some feedback.

  • Its a surgery usually requiring 3 days in hospital depending on any medical history. You have to take into account that infection is a possibility and that recovery may take a while depending on your body. Most of them cruise through it. Others take time. I think there are government sites regarding info about this

  • Anything. Wondering if there was anyone who has been through it to talk about their experience, particularly with continued breastfeeding post-op.

  • Hi. Im a nurse. What sort of info are you looking for?
