This new OB I am going to wants to do a lap on me. She says it isn't invasive, and wouldn't make new scar tissue. She just wants to see what is going on in there. Can you guys give me some advice? I am so much better than some of you, but my quality of life, is not what I want. Is it a NO NO to do a lap? Thanks Kristie
