Following a routine mammogram at Glenfield General Hospital and then being called back for further investigation I was told in July last year that I had cancer in my left breast. I was given this information in such a way that I felt positive from the start. At every stage in my journey I was met with kindness, care and understanding by all the staff at the Breast Care Unit and on Ward 23A. I was introduced to Mr Khout who explained what was needed and why and he performed a wide local excision and sentinel lymph node biopsy with mammoplasty on 8th September 2015. Due to the cancer being situated where it was I had tissue which took a while to heal but Mr Khout did everything he could to aid the recovery process so that radiotherapy could begin on schedule. At my first visit to the Oncology Department at the Royal Infirmary the consultant said that I appeared to be very well informed. The credit for this goes to Mr Khout who has explained everything, in ways I could understand, at every stage. In February this year Mr Khout again operated, this time for symmetrisation with right breast reduction and again this went extremely well. I cannot thank him enough for the care he has given me and I appreciate his understanding, his kindness and his sense of humour in what might have been a very traumatic time in my life. Mr Khout – if you read this review “I thank you sincerely and send you my very best wishes for the future”. Kathleen Brown
I first met Mr Khout on 29th June 2015,when he told me I had early Breast Cancer,he took the time to explain everything more than once to make sure I understood,he also checked to see if I needed to ask questions. I had a left wide local excision and sentinel node biopsy on 16th June, again on the day he made sure I understood exactly what was going to happen. I felt very at ease from the first meeting.it was all explained in easy terms so I could understand and not worry.Also understanding your pathology report was all explained and filled in so I did not have to remember all that was said which was very helpful. I definately would not be worried if I had to have future operations done by Mr Khout. Thank you -Brenda
When I was diagnosed with breast cancer last month, I felt fortunate to be wrapped in the care of Glenfield's Breast Care Unit and Mr Khout. From the beginning Mr Khout gave me reassurance and confidence, and he cared a great deal about my feelings in every aspect of my operation, reconstruction and recovery. He gives his time, listens and also is a brilliant surgeon! Thank you, NRC.
