Hi there everyone so I had my 5 seconds of fame last night on the 5pm channel 10 Brisbane news about wait times for recon in qld. I was really nervous how it would go but the story was great and presented really well and a big thank you for penny from BCNA for asking me to be a part of it and to the gorgeous Pippa Sheehan for interviewing me

 Please take a look if you are interested it starts about 10 minutes into the news broadcast. Margie. 

Check out Queensland News on #tenplay

i would love to hear your feedback especially from the qld bc survivors on the wait list like me. Let’s hope someone sits up and takes notice of it. Xx

    @onemargie, you go girl. It really is disgusting women have to wait so long. I have not even been given the opportunity for discussion or to get on the waiting list. I don't see my surgeon again until March next year.

    I asked about the plastic surgeon and was told I can ask my GP for a referral. I've not yet done it though.
    My follow up appointment is in May - I gather it is 12 months post surgery.
