In my opinion NO: A lot more scary to have your gallbladder removed and a gastric sleeve, both are surgeries you have listed as having, a good well trained gyn should explain everything and be gentle, a lot more scary if u have something that could have been diagnosed and then it turns into something bad cause u didn't get examined. ...Read more

I recently went to my gyneocologist and had a culture test done. It was negative. What am I free of, what to do?
T-3.7 osteo diagnosed last month, ginocologist won't see me for another six months. It was -2.4 2 years ago. What can I expect the score to be in 6mth?

Time to review how to take it properly: on empty stomach, wash down w/8oz water only (no juice, milk, coffee, tea etc), then wait 30min before eating. Thyroi. ...Read more

Absolutely: Even without a uterus (you don't mention whether your ovaries were left intact), you still need an annual pelvic exam. You may or may not need a pap smear depending upon your prior pap history, but you vagina, labia, vulva are all areas that need regular evaluation.
