In 2009 I was told I had hyperthyroidism and began taking meds. Then in December 2011 I was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkins lymphoma. By March 2012 I was in remission. I had heart palpitations and tremors but nothing was offered to me but medications. In January 2016 I was told I had acute myloid leukemia. I had been receiving treatment at 2 places but after that I decided I would only come to UCLA.
In April 2016, I had a bone marrow transplant. I met Dr. Donangelo who said I could benefit from surgery or radiation. I was referred to Dr. Livhits. On June 22, I had 1/2 my thyroid and a large goiter removed.
I am glad I did it. Its only 2 weeks but I notice a big difference. No heart palpitations, no anxiety, no hot flashes, no headaches.Everything is smooth.me
I am glad I was referred to Dr. Livhits. She did an awesome! I am blessed I was in such good hands.
