I know it varies by area with most being a total blanket no, but I'm led to believe if it's required for medical necessity it could be possible, wondering if anyone has any experience of this? I'm needing to have major abdominal surgery in the next few months and have quite an apron of spare skin now that would hinder wound healing, so I'm wondering if this would be considered as a medical necessity. If anyone has any experience to share I would really appreciate it, I'm seeing the consultant on 12th November so it would be really helpful if I had some tips on how to approach the subject - my op is gynae in nature. Many thanks
