I NEED to call the GI today, I can't procrastinate out of fear anymore, but I'm paralyzed and can't make the call. I know my health is on the line, but I'd almost rather keep suffering than make the call. I'm terrified, not only of the impending discomfort at the doctor's office, but at what news I might receive. I'm 70% sure they are going to tell me I need surgery and I don't know if I could handle news like that right now. How do I make myself make the call?

      Just keep in mind 30% of you thinks you might not! Do you have an aversion to surgery?

        @Loblolly I do. And because of my POTS it will most likely cause a flare-up that could last for months. So surgery may not even help me feel better.
