Reagan’s Chest Surgery Reagan was suffering from a sunken chest, and wanted to go through surgery to have a bar put in place to support it. The surgery was successful, however after the procedure the bar had to be re-positioned and later removed as it was becoming attached to his breast bone. Reagan believed that he wasn’t fully informed of the risks that were involved in the procedure. Had he been made fully aware he may not have gone through with the operation. He contacted POhWER as he needed support in writing draft letters and reading the ones sent to him. His case is still ongoing however Reagan said that without the support he was given, he would not have managed with his case.
