I would like to express my deepest gratitude for all your dedication, hard work, and sincerity you provided for me as your patient. When I was diagnosed with breast cancer in September of 2001 I was devastated and didn't know if I was going to fight for my life or die.
Getting breast cancer is not usually considered a gift, but may be getting the right treatment for it is a unique kind of gift.
Dr. Ochoa said I was a candidate for DIEP flap reconstruction. I wanted it done at the time of the mastectomy. I spent the next month reading everything I could about DIEP flap and early stage cancer and watching the patient testimonials, while getting used to the no caffeine or chocolate before surgery.
I had my bilateral mastectomy and immediate DIEP flap the day before my birthday in September of 2010. I told the hospital staff that this was my birthday present; getting rid of cancer, getting a breast reduction and getting a tummy tuck. I thought I would be terrified, but everyone had told me how great Dr. Ledoux was and how wonderful the hospital staff was, so after Dr. Ledoux prayed with me, I was ready to go.
Even before the shock of being told I had breast cancer was over I was scheduled for an appointment with Dr Nastala at PRMA. He and the office staff were so kind and understanding and answered all of my crazy questions. I chose to have the DIEP procedure and also to have both breasts removed even though only one was affected.
Can DIEP flap #BreastReconstruction prevent detection of #BreastCancer recurrence? NO! Breast reconstruction (with a DIEP flap or any other method) does not increase the risk of breast cancer recurrence or decrease survival in any way.Sat, June 24, 2017 - 3:26:01
