Re: [IP] Endo



My Primary works with me and my pump and writes all my prescriptions etc....
I do see an endo about every 6 months (when my appointments don't get
cancelled). The only reason for keeping the endo is that I am still trying
to get pregnant and my primary doesn't go to the better hospital for
high-risk pregnancies and I will need someone connected with that hospital.
