thanks for both replies!

You know, I really DO feellike I do not get the level of caring or interest I want from my doctors. I've disregarded this fact for the 3.5 years I've been aware of it. It saddens me. rankly, I attributed it to me no longer being "worth saving". How's THAT for crudding self-esteem?
I'd LIKE to speak up and say, "Look, this has been going on far too long; I need a diagnosis and treatment plan!" I won't though.
SHOCK ATTACK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Just WRITING THAT SENTENCE GAVE ME A MOMENT OF I-DUNNO-WHAT! ( Actually, I _DO_ but the word escapes me, as they so often do sans estrogen.... )
'cuse ME, but, **** 'EM!
They've been leting me _GO_ like this, FAR TOO LONG to excuse, and by golly gumshoes, I am going to INSIST on ACTION!
Thanks for getting me going!
This was sort of like a psychological exercise in here today!
Good for ME!

"Old bird?" Medicare? "No longer worth saving?" Yes, you ARE
worth saving!!!!!!!!!!!! Where does it say only the young
are worth saving? I am probably one of the oldest ones here,
and I BETTER get good medical treatment!! My mother is 83
living up north, and I get so frustrated because I don't think
she is getting good medical attention either. I think this will
change as we baby boomers age. We can get pretty fiesty!!
You do seem to have some medical concerns that do need
attention. I have no idea what is happening inside your body, and I don't want to scare you. I do want to beg you to see a
doctor who WILL listen to you and do any necessary tests
to determine the problem and treatment. If there is anything
wrong, the sooner you start treatment or surgery, the
better. You ARE worth saving, and BABY, you STILL have a lot
of living to do!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

GREAT!!!! I am SO GLAD to hear that you will go to a doctor
this week!!! You have a lot of sisters here who are very supportive, helpful, and concerned. Sometimes we just have
to step up to the plate and be our own advocate. Then,
we can come home, post on hystersisters, and cry and laugh
with them. We are here for you and anxiously waiting to
hear about your doctor's appt. You need to get your life back,
and you will!!!!!!!

(((Susanna))) Just wanted to say that I'm happy and relieved that you're going to see a doctor. Nobody's too old or unworthy of adequate medical care.

Please let us know how you're doing... and.... remember: don't take "no" for an answer. There must one or several reasons for the pain you're experiencing and the mechanical problems you're having.

Its not you, Sweetie Pie!

I'm just VERY unaccustomed to this much attention.
It's a bit much at all once.
You did NOTHING wrong; it's me.
I'm a bit set in my CALM , QUIET ways, I guess.
This has all come hot & fast at me, mail after mail.
I'm going to get looked after, on that you can rely.
Afterward, I'll share the "news', if there be any.
If there not be any, I'll share that, too.
