Today, I was surprised to see a former patient of yesteryears. She had not seen me for a long time. She came all the way from Samar to have a check-up with me for her swollen leg.
Then, Maria Buella, now 68 years old, told and thank me for what I did in 1992. I did a modified radical mastectomy for her breast cancer in the Philippine General Hospital in September 30, 1992 (she cannot forget the date – I don’t have her records anymore). She was 43 years old then. She did not receive any additional treatment after her operation. She is now 26 years in remission. We both thank God for this long remission.
