In another thread, liveliner posts for the first time,
Welcome to HW, hate to have you here, glad you came. Your stats seems on the normal-low end and you should have plenty of time to figure your path. Most docs will insist in a couple months healing time after the biopsy anyway. Take the time to find out about

One thing that would help is to fix yourself a Signature listing the pertinent details of your Journey so far. Go to Control Panel, then select Edit Profile, scroll to the bottom and fill out the space there.

this spreading beacsue of my score and score and small amount that I have but it is procedure.
