"Before having a double mastectomy, my surgeon mentioned lymphedema being a possible post-surgery complication. Although I was told that I was low-risk, the more I looked into it, the more certain I was that I wanted to eliminate any risk of developing lymphedema. About 30 days before surgery, I started seeing Sharon (and Abdu) and it has been almost two years and six surgeries later. After each visit, I still can’t believe how much fluid and tension is moved out and how less swollen my body is overall. I believe that my visits with at the National Lymphatic Centers have been instrumental in my recovery after each surgery - not only did I not have any complications but all of my doctors have commented on how quickly I have healed. The treatments offered at the National Lymphatic Center are life changing and I would recommend them to anyone, especially anyone having or that has recently had surgery."
