The doctor seemed pleased with the surgical incision healing. He heard my concern about whether my thyroid dosage was correct, and ordered the appropriate lab order. Aware of my elevated uric acid level in the past, he reordered that again. I forgot to tell him that I don´t eat asparagus any more! It brings on the gout.
