Hi Arlene...awesome your husband is doing well!! I hope the next visit is benign.
Regarding all your other problems...curious if you've seen your gyne recently and if you've been checked for ovarian problems. Just a thought and don't want to add to the already torment you've been going through.
I hope the new doctor is able to look at the whole picture instead of just the most obvious.
Thanks for the update...I think you're doing the right thing. I've not had to change doctors, fortunately.
Please post on Tuesday to let us know how it all goes for you......make a good list of pertinent info/questions to have at the ready.
Again, great news about
