I am honored and pleased that Michelle initiated conversation about my sexuality. I may not have brought up the subject myself. I am anxious to try the Cialis she so kindly prescribed for me. Thank you Michelle I´ll let you know how things go.

I wish the doctor had scheduled a 6 month follow-up as we´re not really sure that my breast tenderness was due to non-cancerous information of the previous surgery scar tissue.
