    Anon_126129--thank you for the update!

    I am so glad this turned out to be the right decision for you and you're feeling so much better. I'm sure it was concerning for you with your history of breast cancer and them finding pre-cancerous cells.

    It's always nice to hear good outcomes.

    Thanks for sharing,
