This was my second go-round with breast cancer. After my first diagnosis in 2002, I had a lumpectomy and radiation. It left a hideous scar, but I survived. I was diagnosed in 2010 with 2 different cancers in the other breast. I opted for a double mastectomy and reconstruction.
Dr. Merrin and his staff were professional and treated me with dignity. I'm not quite finished yet. I have my permanent implants and still need to get my nipples recreated, but so far, the results are fabulous. One of my implants was inserted through the old scar, and the hideous indentation is gone.
I'm not finished healing yet, but it looks better than it did after I healed from the firt bout with cancer. Not too much pain, and a farly easy recovery. I can't wait so see the final result. I highly recommend Dr. Merrin and his staff if you live in Southern Colorado.
