I wanted to say hello and, I'm new here. I hope everyone is doing well. I wish I would have founf this site about three years ago which was before my surgery but, everything turned out pretty well. Take care all.

  • I also had a microD last december and just like you I wish that I would have found this site first. My surgery was failed. If I would have found this site, I would not have taken the chance with surgery and just continued with my RFA's which were working pretty well. I am glad to see that your surgery was a success and wish you luck.
