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.
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.
Ayer es historia y Dios siempre tiene su plan...
So here I am, post surgery and all is looking good. I am thankful to PRMA, because you gave me a choice. I can now have the body I want and I've been trying to get that word out not only about DIEP flap but also about PRMA. PRMA has the training and expertise to help women have the choice as to what type of reconstruction they want. I think that is important when all of us facing these options did not have a choice in getting cancer.
I came to PRMA seeking delayed reconstruction following chemotherapy, bilateral mastectomy and 33 radiation treatments. As a consequence of my treatments and the loss of 27 lymph nodes, I spent significant effort managing the early stages of lymphedema.
Thanks so much for sharing your story Angela! “I had the #DIEPflap surgery on my right side in April of 2017 and will be doing a revision surgery on my left with Dr. C in November. I had breast cancer 8 years ago, and after failed implants, then losing my implant, I sought out information and found PRMA. I originally saw that my surgeon, who did my mastectomy, followed PRMA on Twitter, so there I began my research. I emailed PRMA and within an hour had a phone call from someone! That began my journey. I’m 55, been through multiple surgeries for #breastreconstruction prior to contacting PRMA, had a gallbladder scar and wasn’t sure I’d even be a candidate for DIEP flap. I wanted to be able to reach in my closet and wear a top where I did not have to camouflage my chest and wear scarves to hide unevenness. I feel more complete than I have in such a long time. I spent my summer in national parks doing what I love, hiking and being in nature and not worrying about infections on my radiated skin and over doing it because I could get an infection! There is so much going on in the world and it’s my hope to be a positive force to help someone! Whatever I can to do to let others know of my positive experience and amazing PRMA people, sweet Denise 😊, and Dr. C being so intelligent and kind! Thank you, Brittany for the opportunity to reach out to others. You and PRMA continues to amaze me with how once the surgery is over, you’re still with us!”Mon, October 16, 2017 - 9:04:02
