A woman's perogative: Change it back if possible and take care of this. I understand how afraid you may be, but it's even worse if they don't find something that could be easily corrected. Try not to let fear make you foolish. It's hard to breathe w/ yoyr head in the sand - and you can die w/out air! Take care, Best wishes!
