    I would like to know if others have had Dr. say no? One oncologist said I already looked as bad as his patient,and if I were his MOTHER he wouldn't pursue chemo. Went on to find a better oncologist! Second bad news was I was already to lasix surgery so I could stop looking for my reading glasses,This is an exceptional laser optometrist and she said FMS effects eye muscels, so she may do more harm than good. I respect her judgement because she respected my illnes. Anyone have like enperience?

    I really don't think that the opthamologist knows what she is talking about. Our muscles work right; they just hurt. I had laser surgery for farsightedness and didn't have any problems. If you really want the surgery done, go to another doctor and don't mention fibromyalgia.

    My nuerosurgeron refused to do neck surgery 3 dis fusion due to FM and that he did not get good result from people with FM. If my neck gets worst then he would. Sharon
