Ray,

I checked my magic eight ball and it said your check up is going to be fine. You still have to go to the doctor and complete the formalities though. You see, if I give out the answer without you getting the actual tests, the American Medical Association will come after me. :)

Angst is normal. Until they say you have it, you don't.

Remember those T-shirts with the image of the guy taking the big step that said "Keep on Truckin'"? Well...just do that.

Ray,

Good luck with your checkup. We will all be rooting for you.
And you'r right, this is one test we can't study much for.
Let us know how it goes.

Thank You Cynthia and Mike,

You would be the two go to people I would verify facts with. I think Mike is right about some tort lawyer rumor. Hope all is well with all. I am having the six month check up on June 20th and starting to get a little angst although there is nothing I can do about the results but to accept them and take action in any case.

Nope.

Never heard about it. Sounds like a tort lawyer kind of thing but you never know...

When I looked it up, I found bladder cancer mentioned on the same page as the lawyers were talking about other problems caused by the mesh but the reference to bladder cancer was from Actos (a diabetes medication).
