Hi Matzan,


Make an appt. now! I was the one who went to my PCP with back, neck and shoulder pain and I mentioned a breast reduction. She gave me a referral and also sent me to a neurologist for an MRI. That showed osteoarthritis in my neck. So I made an appt with a PS and he advised me about the ins and the procedure. So please call and make an appt!

Hi Matzan,

I had been complaining about my breasts every year at my yearly GYN visit. The last visit I had with her, we talked about reduction surgery and she said I would be perfect candidate and she wrote a wonderful letter for me. I had that and the recommendation from the PS I chose and that was enough for me. I have heard many women go to a chiropractor for support, also. But first try your general physician. Don't feel guilty or bad about going to see them for this as it is definitly a health issue in many ways.
Fight for your right to have this surgery, it is so worth it!!!!

Good luck to you!
Nancy

IN ORDER TO GET AN APPROVAL YOU WILL HAVE TO START GETTING YOUR SYMPTOMS DOCUMENTED BY YOUR DR. DON'T THINK YOUR A BOTHER THEY ARE MORE UNDERSTANDING THAN YOU THINK.
