My Story

Shanda | age 45
Patient Representative
Fort Worth, TX
11 years, 11 months since her MammoSite treatment.

My name is Shanda. I am 34 years old. My situation is just a little different. Usually MammoSite is not done for women my age, but my surgeon and oncologist thought I was a perfect candidate. On May 11, 2007 I had surgery for a lumpectomy and on that day I found out the lump was malignant. From there they placed the MammoSite catheter. I started my radiation treatments on May 28,2007. After 1 week going in twice a day I had no side effects. I could not even tell that I had radiation treatments, inside or out. I continued my daily activities with no problems. MammoSite is really the best because I was so afraid during this situation but it was so quick and simple I never felt a thing. I am so glad that my doctors recommended MammoSite for me.
