Patient Comments (1)
in Chicago, IL |
I went with a couple of sonograms transvaginal and regular, after the pelvic check he said that the fibroids they measured were way smaller than what he was feeling during the pelvic exam, he decided to schedule me to re-do the sonagrams himself. When i came back for the sonagrams he was absolutely right, in fact he thought the fibroids were even larger than what he was seeing and wanted to make sure that they were ONLY fibroids so he ordered an MRI. it was a very large mass and other conditions
