Cat scan? I am wondering what to ask for. Am scheduled for a mammogram next week and hoping they will write a script to do a ultrasound as well. Did not mean to be alarmist. A few years ago I was told that I am okay, but that my uterus "traveled" and is scarred from c-secton. I wonder if there are adhesions because I had terrible endometriosis when I was menstruating. They always poo poo me and say it's muscular and that a GYN is not the type of doc I need to be seeing. [ Reply | More ]
