Yep, I did lose my patience with you, for sure, so sorry about but from reading the pages previous to my "nasty reply" I felt that I was not the only one that was losing patience. I don't know how you will go look something up yourself that happened to me personally but go for it and good luck. I DID "state where I got this info." if you would just read what I wrote. I said our endo told us at diagnosis. Yes, I think a dr. can be wrong but several endos from different states saying the same thing? I have a harder time with that one. Maybe there is a study out there, but, again, as I have already said I don't have it to pass along and I don't have the time or interest to go find it for you. If it concerns you that much then go look it up. I'm not concerned about it. I repeated what I was told by our endo, I stated the source, I apologized if I was wrong in that statement but you still won't let it go hence the "dog with the bone" comment which was supposed to be funny. I did NOT "flip out" when you gave false information. I did not 'hound' you about sending a link (which, again, I didn't say I got the info. off the internet. Sometime I actually read or talk to other professionals) I simply ask that you not give out false info. - end of story. Now this story needs to end or we can continue to drag it on out into infinity and beyond. As far as people pm-ing me saying they were told the exact same thing by their endo - it happened. Sorry, they must have pm-ed me for a reason instead of posting on this thread so I won't betray them by posting their comments here. I suspect they were afraid if they commented on here they would get attacked as they have already seen here. To the OP, PLEASE come back if you haven't already run away & pulled your hair out over your innocent question!! All I know about the OP, is what a previous poster observed, she (is it a she?) seems interested in finding out about alert dogs because that's the subject she has posted about the most. If she's reading this thread I'm sure she's found out more than she ever wanted to know. I know I have. This seems destined to be the longest thread in CWD history!
