Woman 'betrayed' over 'unnecessary' surgery

A woman who claims she had two lumpectomies when her condition was benign said she felt "betrayed" and "angry" she had gone through "unnecessary" surgery.

I'm speaking out to make people aware.

I was oblivious to what was going on until I received a letter saying there were some irregularities.

When I was told my operations had been totally unnecessary, I couldn't believe it. I felt relieved at first, but now I feel angry and betrayed.
