I put the reason up in an earlier post. I don't like surgery either and I'm well aware of the opinions of many folks on CZ - heck I share those opinions! But I also feel there can be a place and time for medical intervention and this is it.
I'd like to kindly say I feel no reason to defend my situation because it just is what it is. Trust me, I've tried natural methods but when something is dead it's dead. And have plenty of tests and opinions of naturopaths and Drs that helped me reach this place.
I do so appreciate your concern. It's serious business - no doubt about it.
I know we on CZ don't all agree but I do know we can be respectful of others actions.
