I was diagnosed with breast cancer following a routine mammogram. I was fortunate to have no lymph node involvement and was able to have a lumpectomy. I was a candidate for the 5-day radiation. I had never heard of SAVI before.

My surgeon was Dr. Robyn Moncreif and my radiation oncologist was Dr.Rashmi Benda. My treatment was at Boca Raton Regional Hospital.

I had no side effects. The catheter was annoying but not totally disruptive to my life. It didn’t hurt to implant and the radiation was just 10 minutes or so in the morning and afternoon. With my doctors’ blessings, I went to California for a wedding just 5 days after my treatment ended. I was so happy to celebrate my 6-month anniversary with a clean mammogram and ultrasound. I would be happy to speak with anyone who’s a candidate for SAVI and has any questions.
