Conditions with symptom: 'foetal deformity'
Hi, for many years I haven't been confident with my breasts and bento the doctors on many occasion asking if they are a normal shape as I believe they are not! I got the courage to go to a plastic sergeon to have a quote to go ahead with plastic surgery. However the sergeon has quoted me over £7000 for this as I have a deformity called tuberous breast deformity and will have to have 2 procedures to correct this. I have since been to the doctor stating this asking for help for funding towards this and keep getting declined! Is there any other way I can have help with this ? As I do actually have a deformity- I knew it from the start!
Hi.. I'm 44 and been "so called" suffering from reflux too for 3yrs now... Started with back pain, then through to the breast bone also finding it painful wen I take a deep breath. So with this went to doctors and was told take this "naproxin" not long after had to go to A&E waited 8hrs to be seen..... Then to be told "can't find no problem take these paracetamol... 3days later bck to A&E and had a camera and biopsy taken and nothing was wrong.... Then sent home. Went to my doctors nxt morning and basically told "i had to relax and ride through it...... 24hrs had past and that was it..... I couldn't take anymore, I was so tired, exhausted ov pasein around and feeling really bloated. I then went to a different hospital and low and be hold, that evening had emergency operation for a perforated ulser in my upper dernum.... The only thing they could do was to patch it up. Unfortunatly.... Had complications a week later from "foetal vomiting" for 16 hours which u could imagine was scarry and foul and had to phone for an ambulance, which the paramedics said "they had never seen someone who could vomit so much (im talking half a bucket) sometimes lime green or a browny colour. Srry for being so graphic but people need to be..... Prior to that.....1 year to the day, i had to have my gaulbladder removed caus of "stones" wether its a coincidence I don't kno. A fellow sufferer...... Who still to this day experiences symptoms and my doctors are not interested to find out the problem... Jst tablets, tablets, tablets,.... Onzoprasol. Fluxotine. Amplodopine. Plse... I need some guidance or help.... I hav no quality ov life at the moment always feeling tired and exhausted. Well..... Rant over lol...... Marck.

I'm so distressed, I have had three children and breast fed all of them, I am 24years old and a full time mum, I had my eldest child at 18, therefore I wasn't fully developed anyway and have never seen my body as it was supposed to be. My breasts droop and are highly embarassing for me, my partner has never seen them and the thought of taking my children swimming makes me cringe because of them. I feel so depressed and low, I try to carry on about my daily buisiness but it's constantly on my mind, i've even showered with my bra on before today in a plight to not see their deformity. It effects me 24/7 and i'm angry at myself for feeling like this, for feeling like I just can't accept myself for what I am. I went to my GP and spoke about it with them; it's taken me six years to pluck up the courage to go, it was a highly traumatic experience, I was told that funding was not available for me to have implants with the NHS and that I should consider seeing a phsychologist- I'm no doctor but I know the remedy to my problem isn't a case of self acceptance anymore, I have to have the procedure of breast augmentation done to feel like a woman again- unfortunately i'm currently unemployed and seeking work and with a bad credit history to match; finance is out of the question. I'm beside myself with anxiety and feel at an all time low. I'll just have to class them as war wounds and try to move forward with my life.
Sorry you are so unhappy with your breasts. I am a mum of one, and due to breast feeding also have saggy breasts. However you seem to be more affected by this than me. It is hard, especially as a woman when you don't feel attractive or "normal". It is great you have breast fed all 3 of your babies, and given them the best start in life. Unfortunately having children does effect your body in many ways (not all good ones)... What I would do if I were you is go and get a second opinion at another doctors surgery. Many GP's will say you should go and see a psychologist, as I'm guessing they don't want to fork money out on the NHS to pay for it. (The NHS are rubbish)! Many cases can be physiological though. I would say in your case though it is quite clear you are extremely unhappy, and it sounds like it is effecting your day to day routines. Go and seek a second opinion. Or even go and see a physcologist. It cant do any harm. As your Physcologist can write a letter to your GP stating the severity of how you feel about your breasts, which your GP cannot ignore - especially if it is effecting you so badly. Which will enable you to get an operation done. Talking about it too may even help in certain ways...
I am flat chested and have had the test at the hospital that there is no growth that will accrue during my life time. No clothes fit me properly and I am called shim (witch means half girl half boy) I can not escape from it because the world has developed to nothing but what women are suppose to be, curvy with big breast and nothing else matters on the inside so the world thinks. So does that mean i am not a women. I started my period when i was 11 and my mum has C size breast and my aunts are all DD or DDD so what is wrong with me i eat fine i exercise allot so why me why am I not excepted as a human or dare i say female. No doctors will help me and i very petite and very short much more then anyone in my family. I can not enjoy life without knowing what gender i am, to wake up every day and have a panic attack every time i am mistaken for a 8 year old girl or boy is not what I call fun. None of what I say is a lie I really am an outcast even to my family I need help please....Sorry for the huge complaint but one more would my heart transplant when i was young have anything to do with my deformity. i can not keep wearing padded bras that is faking it I want to be a women with real breast. I have tried very hard to forget but that is making me do the impossible be cause I am surrounded by people who remind every day because there heart is as cold as ice no joke. So sorry I wrote to much.
