Lymph Node Transplant

When we were at the social in January, Dr. Massey's nurse Jill announced that Dr. Massey is now doing lymph node transplants. When I was in New Orleans for my reconstruction, Dr. Massey did the first transplant there on a sweet woman named Sharon. We stayed at the Hope Lodge together and got to know each other. Check out the video link on Dr. Massey's web site at www.drmarga.com to see a great news report on lymph node transplants. There are very few doctors that can do this procedure. Tell everyone you know that this is now available. You never know who it might help. I told my massage therapist and one of her other patients is now scheduled with Dr. Massey to have it done.
