Breast Cancer-Reconstruction using GAP procedure

Hi,

This is possibly not the right forum but I can't find a Switzerland breast cancer forum. If anyone knows any links please advise.

I am living in Ireland and as I am slim am struggling to get a suitable reconstruction following bilateral mastectomies. I have implants but radiotherapy has caused capsular contraction so I need further surgery. I am too thin for tissue transfer from stomach and back weak and painful so reluctant to use back muscle. My plastic surgeon has advised he can refer to a surgeon in Switzerland who uses the buttock area. Is there anyone who has experience of this procedure?

Many Thanks

I'm sorry to hear of your situation.
There are quite a few links to be found by Googling things like "Brustkrebs Schweiz" or "Breast Cancer Switzerland" (both in German) or "Breast reconstruction Switzerland" in English.

Hope someone on the Forum can help you further and that you can find somewhere to have the operations you need.
