You're in good hands w/Mayo. God smiles down on them and those Mayo helps. My family has been going to Mayo in MN for more than 50 years whenever we're not getting satisfactory answers locally. In my 52 years of occasional Mayo visits we've had what I consider three "miracles at Mayo". Hubby and I have "Mended at Mayo" t-shirts AND "Repaired in Rochester" t-shirts. :-) We're believers.

Which gastro are you scheduled with? I see Dr Tremaine.

Good luck and God bless.
