Talking Living With A Portwine Stain For 51 Years

Hi My Name Is Marylin From Puerto Rico. I Been Living With A Portwine Stain For 51 Years And It Hasnt Been Easy But Not Imposible To Keep On. I Recomend That If You Have A Portwine Stain It Should Be Treated As Fast As Posible. I Recomend Dr. Milton Waner At Vascular Birthmark Institute Of New York. He Debulk My Lip On Oct, 2010 And Really I Have Done Alot Of Improvement. Now I Can See My Teeth When I Smile. I Feel A Better Person And My Selfesteme Is Much Better. I Trust His Job. My Friend Never Quit And Loose Faith Theirs Alot It Could Be Done.

Glad you are feeling better these days! Will you have to have another appointment with Dr. Waner or will one debulking be all that you need?
