Ask the Doctor – I Am 3 Years Post Mastectomy With Radiation On My Right Side And I Am Interested In The Diep Flap Surgery.

This week, Audrey Rowen, PA-C, of The Center for Natural Breast Reconstruction answers your question about breast reconstruction.

Question:  I am interested in the DIEP flap surgery. I am 3 years post mastectomy with radiation on my right side. I am 56 years old and live in Columbia and I have spoken with one of your patients who was happy with her breast reconstruction. I would like to make an appointment.

Answer: Thank you for reaching out to us! My name is Audrey and I am the physician assistant here at the practice. We would be happy to make an appointment for you to come and see us! Which days work best for you? Our normal clinic days are Monday, Tuesday, and Friday. If you’d prefer to schedule over the phone vs. email, feel free to call our office at 843-849-8418 anytime over the next few days and we can set that up for you.

Did you have bilateral mastectomies or just the right side? Are you interested in bilateral DIEP reconstruction? Once we get you on the schedule, we like to try getting some of your records in regards to your oncology and surgery history so it is a huge help if you could get us the names of our Oncologist, PCP, and breast surgeon so we can start requesting those records before your appointment. I am also happy to chat with you over the phone if there are any questions you would like answered before you make the trip out to see us.

Please let us know which days and times work best for you to schedule an appointment and let me know what other ways I can help! We look forward to meeting you soon!
