Ipswich Hospital

I had my first my first routine mammogram, age 48, as part of the early call up program. 20th May 2014 I was recalled for further tests to discover I had DCIS (Ductal Cancer in Situ), I had no physical symptoms / lumps and was in good health.

This was a massive shock, and I had to have a biopsy that day. I first saw Mr Garg in his clinic at Ipswich, following the results of that biopsy having been told I needed it operated on. I could not speak highly enough of him, he was professional and very kind at the same time, taking time to explain in detail the procedure its outcomes and to answer all my sometimes daft questions I had for him.

It all happened so quickly and is difficult to get you’re head around. I left the consultation with a clear understanding of what would happen next, and of the possible outcome(s) Mr Garg came to see me before the operation on 11th June and I felt I was in very safe, highly skilled, hands, and I completely believed as he’d said he would do his very best for me. I am now post op and again Mr Garg went the extra mile as it is normal for your GP to check the wound 10 days later, but he offered to see me and again answered my barrage of questions, I couldn’t be happier with the results so far he has done an amazing job considering the extent of the surgery. I would like to believe all consultant surgeons are of the same calibre as Mr Garg, I feel very lucky and blessed to be under his care.
