Breast Augmentation and Hep c

Breast Augmentation and Hep c

Postby mika04 » Mon Jul 13, 2009 8:01 am

I have my breast augmentation scheduled is 2 weeks and I just found out Friday that I tested positive for Hep C! My doctor told me there is no reason to cancel the surgery, but I was wondering if my PS might refuse....Has anyone heard of this? Thank you for any information you may have....mika

No, there's no reason why you would be refused the surgery, that would be discrimination. All doctor's and nurses are supposed to use the same precautions with everyone, assuming that everyone is infected, so to deny you would be unethical.

Oh, let me add that they may require a more extensive blood test work up on you, for platelets, pro time, etc. They'll just need to make sure you're healthy before the surgery, as they would with anyone.

Hep c

Postby spiffytiffy » Mon Jul 20, 2009 2:29 pm

I agree with the other nurse. All health care personnel use universal precautions. No reason to worry about not doing the surgery. As a mother who has a son newly diagnosed with hep c. My advise to u is to take very. good care of yourself and to pursue the interferon treatment

Just wanted to say thanks for taking the time to reply......I was thinking the same thing but wanted to be sure.....Nor do I want to put anyone at risk.....Its hard to accept that I have it since I dont have any risk factors nor any symptoms and I am so surprised.....I will be getting more bloodwork as I want to confirm it anyways....but this will be with a gastrointeroligist.....Thanks again for your kind and supportive words.

Mika,

I don't mean to scare you, but I'm going to add my two cents here. If you have Hepatitis C, you might one day want to try curing it, because it can, in worst case scenarios, lead to end stage liver disease or liver cancer (usually after a long time). The current treatment consists of two drugs, interferon and ribavirin, that can cause autoimmune problems in some unlucky patients. Silicone breast implants can also cause this problem if they rupture -- or at least some people think so. You might want to look into it. Better safe than sorry, right?

Here's some info on Hepatitis C:

And some on breast implants and autoimmune disease:

Good luck whatever you decide!

Re: Breast Augmentation and Hep c

Actually,that apparently is not true. Because I had traveled 3 hours on Thursday for surgery Friday morning, and was told he couldn't do surgery because the blood work received the night prior, showed I tested positive for hep c. My WBC was totalllly normal, and I'm young and healthy. I feel there shouldn't have been an issue, but maybe because it's la and everyone is so flippin square up there, may be the case. Plus we didn't seem to get along too well, he made me cry the first time I met him!
Anyway, but yeah I'm definitely determined on getting this operation. Asap too, if it comes to it (hopefully not).. I'll even go to Mexico if I have to. But I want super nice ones, and if a ps seriously won't do the op because I've got hep c, then that's effed up. I felt sooo embarrassed,it's a super shitty feeling.
Let me know if you did get your aug!
