Someone is a bit late here, I had a uterine suspension in 1959 at an Air Force Base Hospital. A hysterectomy was required 5 years later because of cervical cancer. Gwendolyn S. haven't you figured out yet that doctors as well as the rest of the medical world is "required" to do less so more can be charged?

Clever dog, I'm sure after all the effort to save the bird it was looked after.
