Response from Ms. Breuer
Please, please pose this question to one of the physicians at this site. We are not physicians here in the workplace forum, and I think your anxious mind deserves to be put at ease by someone who can explain in depth what risks were and were not involved. Okay? There are many to choose from here...and you deserve an answer.
