It’s a tale of two tumours.
After the first one came off in my shoulder and the second one in my back, I had surgery to remove the third one.
My surgeon, who had no previous experience in plastic, told me that he would do a good job.
Then he noticed that I was still carrying the tumour.
He recommended that I go for a more traditional surgery and had a biopsy done to try and find out the cause of the tumours growth.
I was told to wait two weeks to do that.
I wasn’t told that I would need to go back for a second biopsy.
It took another six months to find out what was going on.
The second bioplastics result was negative.
I have had two more surgeries since.
The next time I had a tumour, it was a tummy on my left side.
It was a little bit bigger than the first time, but it didn’t look like it was going to grow back and it wasn’t going to be a full tumour either.
It didn’t have any significant bleeding, but the swelling was just massive.
The surgeon who performed the second surgery on me didn’t tell me that I had another tumour that was also on my right side.
I had to wait another six weeks to have a bioprosthetic put in my left leg and the surgery took three weeks.
It’s hard to get a proper diagnosis.
There’s a whole list of things that are not diagnosed and what doesn’t come out.
In some cases, it can take years to get an accurate diagnosis and it’s really important to talk to your doctor if you’ve had surgery that has gone wrong.
