I am a 52 yr old, divorced mother of 2 grown children. I have many medical conditions which have forced me to become educated on medical proceedures, terminology and medications. If you are facing a medical problem please find out as much about it as you can. Talk openly with your doctors but do not let them push you around. Learn to "speak their language" and do not be afraid to question them on any and all parts of your treatment. It is YOUR life and it is the only one that you have! Enjoy it!
