Hello everyone,  there is a free online information session tonight  regarding breast reconstruction.

About the Webinar

Breast reconstruction surgery recreates the shape of the breast following a mastectomy or, occasionally, breast conserving surgery. It can be done at the same time as your surgery (immediate reconstruction) or as a separate procedure at a later time, even many years later (delayed reconstruction). There are many different options available for reconstruction and much to consider so it can seem overwhelming. Some women decide breast reconstruction is not for them. This sometimes called “staying flat”.

The decision is a personal one. It is an individual choice whether a woman wants to have a breast reconstruction, go flat or wear a breast prosthesis. It is important to be comfortable with your decision and your body’s look and feel.Breast Cancer Network Australia’s breast reconstruction webcast will explore the current options and issues affecting women considering breast reconstruction. This is an interactive information session where you will hear from leading experts, as well as a woman who has chosen the option of “staying flat” and have the opportunity to ask questions online.

    Hi :) I was wondering this too - I tried very hard to watch it but it appears my connection here in FNQ is far too patchy for a live webcast!!
