A note to the medical “professional”

Recently in the last few months I have been visiting with medical professionals more than usual. In March I went in for serious pain to the OBGYN. I was supposed to have surgery last September, but it got postponed for several reasons. I muddled thru the winter with ovarian and uterine pain hoping it would just go away….

In March I visited with the covering OB. He examined me, chatted with me, said we needed to do the surgery ASAP, and then left the room to check his schedule.
