« on: June 18, 2019, 11:07:47 am »
Hello all. Today in about 4 hours, I will have my initial phone consultation with someone at a GCS surgeons office in Utah. I am kinda nervous cause this will be the first time i have talked to a surgeons office. Anyways. I know some questions i am going to ask but is there some really important questions i should ask? Example, which type of surgery i should have done?? like depth or ??? Please let me know your thoughts. Thanks and HUGS!! Susan

Dear Susan:
Wishing you well with your telephone consult with the surgeon's office.
YES... ask the questions that you mentioned and feel free to ask more questions....   you may be given a more complete picture of what they may think about your surgery options.... 
...remember, this is preliminary and the next step is to actually schedule an appointment with them so you can talk face to face as they do their exam and tests.

Please keep us all updated... this is so very exciting for sure.

HUGS,
Danielle

So here is an update from earlier today. I talked to the surgeon and everything went well. She said penial inversirsion is the only one they really do cause it has the best rate of success so that is the one i am going to get. Also i won't have to go in a month or more early to meet with the other surgeons which i am really happy to hear. I asked about how long before i would have to and she said i can come in the day for a few day or a week or more before. Anyways. Someone else will be calling me about getting insurance part going. I am really happy at how good things are turning out and it is looking like early december is when it will go. I welcome anyone's comments. HUGS!!!! Susan
