Treated with SAVI – April 2012


My sister in California had had breast cancer and had been treated with SAVI, so I knew how wonderful and easy the treatment was—and that it only took five days. So when I found out I had early-stage breast cancer, I knew I wanted SAVI.

I was referred to Dr. Hernandez who was fabulous. He and his team of people at Halsted Breast Clinic took such good care of me and were so helpful throughout the process. He worked closely with Dr. Olyejar, my radiation oncologist at Ironwood Clinic, so I knew my doctors were communicating about my treatment.

In just five days my treatment was over, with no pain or complications during insertion or removal. My energy level and comfort were okay during that week. Maybe because my sister had put my concerns to rest and because she had such a good experience with SAVI, I wasn’t really worried about anything.

I would certainly recommend SAVI to a friend as my sister recommended it to me!
