    Hi Gail, Dr. Holtorf at Los Angeles FFC here.

    No undressing, just sandals off so he could look at my heals and color of soles of feet. I had on crop pants and sleeveless blouse.

    You will be so happy you went!

    Love, **LdyM

    What time is your appt on 12/5? I also go to the ATL FFC. I need to call to make my 3rd appt. I'll let you know if it's on the 5th.
    I hope all of the replies have put your mind to rest regarding having to undress. I was surprised I didn't have to, but it was a nice surprise.

    I suggest you take someone with you to listen to everything Dr B says. Don't be afraid to ask questions and write down info they give you. It is overwhelming at first! So glad you are going to get help!

    Good Luck and please report back on everything!

    PS if you get an Iv be friendly to everyone else there and you will meet some really nice people! It is great to share stories and meet people who are better! L

    They have a standard Iv and several others. If you are in pain you will probably get the back and muscle which has lidocaine in it. You wount get an antiviral until the determine what the problems are. It is true you will taste and smell like cream corn. You can't smell it but others can. It wears off with in 24 hours! Take Care Lynn
