thanks Chris and Sun... You're right. Chris, you recall how this all started about 3-4 weeks ago? Its taken me that long to make a simple doc appt. My brother said, "if she'd seen something worrisome, she probably would've said, I'm not allowed to say anything.". I should be elated that she said NO. At one point she pressed the wand on a certain spot by the left ovary and it hurt (in the wata painful, blind pimple hurts. Its prolly a fat nasty cyst. Even my doc said tthey're common in women my age, and can cause urinary urgency. Now they want me to visit on Feb 25 for results -- geez. Thanks ladies for our input.
