I'm very sorry you came away with less than favorable results. Please keep us updated as you continue on this journey. I'm happy your surgery with Dr. Conway went well and perhaps you could share a bit more about that in another thread?
With love,
Karyn

Yes, thanks for sharing. Perhaps I missed something in a different post, but did you actually have Dr. Martin do a procedure? Or was it a consult?
And please share how the surgery went, and the recoup afterwards, with Dr. Conway. I have heard very good things about his patient care, and bedside manner.

My best to you,
Debbie

Dear Debbie,

My first surgery was done by Dr. Mark Conway in NH. He has the most wonderful bedside manner and he will stick by your side for years to come. Once you are his patient, you are always his patient. Meaning if you call him with a concern, he will call you back to try to help you in any way he can. He does not just wash his hands of you once the surgery is over and 6 months or even a year go by. Again, any concerns or questions, he will respond and go that extra mile to try to help you. Furthermore, If he can't help, he will do his best to refer you to someone who may be able to help.

I can't say enough positive things about his efforts and whole-hearted concern for pudendal patients.

Hope this helps.
