            Good Luck Shirley.
            Every great thing that has ever happened since the beginning of time has started as a single thought in someones mind.
            So if you are capable of thought then you are capable of great things
            Good luck and stay well.

                    Who is going to do the myectomy?
                    As you know I do recommend a specialty center for myectomy - do you want some information on contacts?

                        Other centers will require travel. I am unsure what your coverage will allow. Mayo, Cleveland and Boston have the most active programs with great results.
