One year ago this month I found out news that would immediately change my life. Being diagnosed with breast cancer was both shocking and frightening. In the very beginning, I had no idea where to start or who to start with. Until I had a plan of action, I felt lost. My recovery after each surgery has been quick without issues, and I sprung back to normal activities quickly. I’m very happy with the results. After having such a traumatic experience emotionally and psychologically, it’s comforting to have as pleasant an experience possible visually every day I see myself in the mirror.
My Oncologist, Dr. Jenny Chang, referred me to my breast surgeon Dr. Darlene Miltenburg who partners reconstruction with Dr. Schusterman. I feel so lucky to have such a wonderful team of Dr.'s. I am so thankful that the path I’ve traveled has led me to Dr. Schusterman for my reconstructive surgery. The staff is always so warm and welcoming, and Dr. Schusterman is very professional, very talented, and very personable. I have no regrets about any of the choices I’ve made with Dr. Schusterman which were tissue expanders followed later with implants. I’ll never forget when he visited me prior to my double mastectomy, saw me fretting while I was getting an IV put in (I have never been a needle fan), he touched my foot and said don’t worry, you’re getting cured today.
