Post by mizzpink23 on 26th September 2009, 12:12 pm

hi ya girls, well,im still on my mission for boobs and have just got off the phone to mya, and unfortunatly they wont do my op, but she said i should try the nhs, as no company like transform, mya etc will operate as they dont have high dependency units , and basically its affecting my life as my gp/heamotolgist wont help with my low platelets as they arnt low enough. so do you think ive got a good enough case to get boobs on nhs, and how do i go about trying?? xx

Oh gosh I'm not sure huni. I think it'd be quicker and easier to get the NHS to help fix your low platelets rather than to give you your boobs. I dont know though, how about you make an appointment to talk it over with your GP? I guess you might be able to get your boobs done by them the nhs?? 727885

Surely they've got to help you in one way or another. You could argue that because of the low platelets, other aspects of your life are being restricted, hence they should fix it because it's interferring with your life?

I'm sorry to hear you are between a rock and a hard place on this one hun!

I agree with nisey - if you can demonstrate to your GP how much this is affecting your life and show them evidence that the other companies literally won't do your op as they don't have the facilities you could have a chance that they will do it on the NHS.

Good luck hun xx

How frustrating for you! The thing is you will obviously be fine post op but because you're 'borderline' the companies just wont take that risk Grrrr...
The hospital I work in has a private wing attached (and another city hospital nearby has recently opened one too) and they use the NHS theatres with their own staff therfore I would guess that if an emergency arose the patient would be transferred directly over to 'normal' care. I would ring every company/independant PS and your local NHS trust hospitals and see where their ops are carried out. We cant be the only hopsitals in the country with this set-up surely.
Worth a try?

Mmmm how about approaching someone that works private and for the NHS for example I know one guy called Mr Dhiital that works for the the Nuffield but also the local hosiptal in plastics... I have heard of a few... that may be worth a glance too.

The thing to do is google " PCT guidelines, breast augmentation, type your area" you may have to dig about in the results to find the right thing.

The guidelines will give you all the info you need on how much they'll do for you as far a surgery goes. Or if you want you could pm me with your area and exactly what your problem is and I'll check it out for you.

It does seem like a good idea trying to go with the NHS because of your platelets problems

Hey hun :allo:

I'm not sure just yet because I think they want to do that fat graft thing again before they put implants in Rolling Eyes , shouldn't complain really after all they are just trying to make sure they make my boobs as nice as they can.

If you already know of people in your area who've had a BA on the NHS then you should be ok chick, but if you get any problems I'll try to help out if I can :)

Good Luck with approaching the NHS. I know 5 people who have had nhs work and 2 years ago i was promised 2 implants to fix my problem. And well now i have been told just one. Its heartbreaking. A close friend of mine has Gilberts syndrome (blood thing, not 100% sure what iits all about) and after 3 kids her boobs were left a right mess, empty, extremly saggy and when she showed me even i was shocked, which is didn't think was possible considering how i live. Well she had her appointment yesterday with NHS and explained it all and they said no. They said to her thats what happens when you have kids and thats it. She is really upset as her mother in law had hers done on the nhs but she was told they are really cracking down on doing the ops as to many are just wanting big boobs.
I am not saying dont try, of course go to your gp and ask if you can be reffered, if they say no well fight to get your blood sorted.
good luck x

But Sarah, the thing is having children is a choice and the results, saggy lack lustre boobs, saggy tummy, are all side effects we just have to live with or pay privately to have fixed.

Whereas a congenital defect is something you have no choice about, trust me if it was a choice between even big saggy boobs or the wonky mess I have, I know which I'd prefer!

so isn't your gp refering you to the Hematology dept at the hosp????? I would possibly get another opinion from another GP. My platelets were simular to your's and i got referred straight away. Mine went up to 113 in my last visit but the hosp is still monitoring me every couple of months. It was suggested to me that i could have a bone marrow test to rule out any other things that may be causing my low platelets?? so far i have declined because i know it really hurts!!! I truely think they should be doing more for you hun.

hi ya, well my gp contacted a heamotolgist, this was about 4 weeks ago, and i still havent heard anything.my gp said he doesnt think the heamotolgist will see me as platelets arnt low enough, also he said if i really wanna see a heamotlogist,im more than likely gunna have to pay for it, the cheek! i cant believe how you got referd straight away, i think your gp is better than mine for sure, i have heard about the bone marrow test, i heard its painful but over very quickly, have you ruled the test out completely hun? x im going to the docters this week, so ill ask to see a different one for a second opinon on heamatolgist xx

No i havn't ruled it out totally but I have decided that if my platelets drop below 90,000 then i will go ahead with the test, but the thought of it makes me go all quesy. TBH my doctor was very very good i was impressed.

sorry, just catching up with this site since getting my laptop back.

I wasn't saying that you shouldn't try, by all means go for it with the GP and i really hope you get it done on the NHS. I have also noticed that every area is different and you could be one of the lucky ones that has a fantastic GP and hospital and get it done. You've been through a rollercoaster and deserve to have your new boobs. I just know in my area, small breast, or saggy breasts aren't getting the surgery. xx

hi sars3dd, well i decided not to try for nhs as i spoke to lots of surgeons via email and they all said they doubt id get it done on nhs, and that i should try a private surgeon. as mya n transform wouldnt be able to do my op, there would be surgeons out there that could. how are you getting on with ure boob job, any luck yet? i hope you get it sorted as i know how stressful it is, you will get there in the end one way or another xx
