小编摘要:出生时的小红胎记在几周后变成了红红的“小丑鼻”,这对康妮和她的父母来说是一件难过的事,因为他们不得不面对别人恣意的评论。当然,经过了手术的康妮已经非常健康,现在也交到了许多的好朋友。

导读:三年前,康妮因为出生几周后在脸上出现的又红又亮的“小丑鼻”而不得不忍受别人的嘲笑。当康妮和她的妈妈去看医生的时候,妈妈只能把康妮的脸藏起来,因为人们会作这样可怕的评论。但是现在,去除了这一标志着肿瘤曾经存在过瑕疵,手术后的康妮看起来精神焕发。随着三个半小时的手术后,高兴的康妮正式宣布说她现在拥有了“和妈妈一样的鼻子”。

 

For three years, she had to put up with cruel taunts because of a condition that left her with a bright red 'clown nose' just weeks after she was born.

Her mother had to resort to hiding Connie Lloyd's face when they went to the doctors because people made such 'horrible' comments.

But now Connie has a new lease of life after surgery to remove the blemish, which actually marked the existence of a tumour.

Following her three-and-a-half hour operation, a delighted Connie proclaimed that she now had a "nose like her mum's".

Her mother, from Slough, Berkshire, said: "When we saw her nose we were amazed. She looked like a different child but we knew it was our Connie."

Doctors had spotted a shadow on Connie's nose at the 26-week scan but when she was born in September 2008, she appeared perfectly healthy.

Two weeks later, her parents Zara and Tom spotted their daughter's nose was turning bright red. What started as a tiny dot quickly grew to 4cm wide.

Their GP referred them onto a skin specialist at Great Ormond Street Hospital, who diagnosed the baby with haemangioma - a benign tumour.

Connie became only the eighth baby in the UK to try the drug Propranolol - used for heart conditions - to stop the growth becoming larger.

But her parents were told there was no cure and also warned she could even bleed to death if her nose was scratched or bruised.

Her mother hunted for anyone who could help and eventually located surgeon Dr Iain Hutchison who specialises in treating facial disfigurements.

He operated on Connie in March, taking three-and-a-half hours to remove the tumour and leaving her with just a small scar.

Her mother said: "Before the operation, Connie was quite shy and when people made comments and pointed she would turn her head."

"Even just going to the doctors' surgery was awful for both of us. I would hide Connie in the car to avoid people making horrible comments."

"By the time Connie was four weeks old her nose was a perfect clown's nose and not only was the birthmark growing externally, but internally too."

"We were constantly worried. The doctors said if she cut or grazed it she could bleed to death. There were treatments to stop it getting bigger but nothing to get rid of it."

"It was the longest two hours of my life when Connie was in the theatre. When she came out of the operation she said her nose was like her mum's. "

"Now she is doing really well, she has a big group of friends and we are so proud of her."

She added: "It's nice not to have to deal with the cruel comments any more but red nose or not Connie has always been our perfect little girl."
