Mad Cook, not to go into the gory details, but my gynie screwed me up so badly inside over a polyp....the polyp is gone, but now have so much scar tissue, they cannot get a sample to do a pap smear. And then he moved out of state. The want me to continue to come in for the tests, but why? Every time they do it the report comes back "incomplete" because they cannot get a sample. But they still get paid for it.

Carol, you have the right to refuse the test. It is not necessary for you. I will never have another PAP but will still have a manual exam once a year.

Carol, when I had the ulcer on my leg, the plastic surgeon refused to do the surgery even though the wound was ready for it. His excuse was he had never had a failure and since I was a smoker he didn't want to do the surgery and have a failure on his record. So for three weeks I would go to his office, he would look at it and then bandage it up again. His words to me as I was leaving was to make sure I made an appointment. At the end of week three, my daughter was headed for the appointment desk, and I called her back. I am sorry it took me three weeks to see what he was doing. He wanted that Medicare payment. I never went back to him. The next plastic surgeon I saw cleared her schedule and had my ulcer surgery done within forty-eight hours. I went into the hospital in a wheel chair and walked out on my own. I will always be grateful to her. She saved me months of pain.

She was horrified when I told her why the first surgeon refused to do the surgery. You don't have to go there and like PF said, you can refuse the procedure.

I harvested some sumac fruit clusters that weren't in the road ditch. Now I need to figure out how to process them.

I dust once every ten years, whether it needs it or not.

Personally, I find it works for cheap furniture and knick-knacks too.

I HATE knick knacks. And of course every time someone goes on vacation, what do they bring back for me? Yeah, you know.
