I never go to the doctor anymore, it's been a few years. I do get VERY nervous though, so I am thankful I don't go often anymore. There was a time I was going literally every few weeks. Between blood tests and doctors, I was lucky to get two weeks off. I hated living like that. Now, sometimes I go to the bathroom at inopportune times, but when it really comes down to it, I feel bad for complaining about
having to use the toilet, it's much easier than what I was dealing with in the past. I don't go once a year and I am not sure if you should. I know people say cancer is still possible but my surgeon said the likelihood was low. What does intact mean? What does the doctor do? Hopefully we would know if something wasn't intact!
