Re-occuring DCIS in 2nd Year
In 2016 I was diagnosed with DCIS and had a wide local excision 2.5 mm high grade DCIS and radiotherapy. On my 2nd year mammogram have been diagnosed of intermediate grade DCIS and I believe 1.7mm however this has not been fully explained to me as to exactly where it is but possibly near the existing scar. I had a very bad experience of being told and not explained to fully just told a Mastectomy is necessary and I can have re-construction. Based on the fact that its come back in the 2nd year and the radiotherapy hasn't worked. I have asked for a 2nd opinion from a different trust under the NHS but still do not feel comfortable as they didn't have my full details. I cant seem to trust the NHS. I understand that they all sit in a room and discuss this but it should be fully explained and I still don't have a clear explanation as to why this cant be taken away again and see how it goes under the existing scar. I now have to find a private consultant that will take time to explain fully and if there are any other options as I don't want to go down the route of a mastectomy. Please can anyone recommend a surgeon locally to greater London or Essex. Very scared, worried and cant stop crying.
