Questions I was asked and couldn~sq~t answer

Dear Group:

Yesterday, one of my customers - a newly diagnosed sufferer - asked me some questions (knowing I was a fellow sufferer)that I had no idea how to answer. I thought I would present the questions to all of you because your answers would be based upon a wide number of experiences rather than textbooks and might therefore be more accurate.
1. Does the disease progress more slowly in someone who is in their 60's as opposed to someone in their early 50's?
2. Does the climate in which the sufferer live have any bearing on the speed of the progression of the disease (FL
sufferers have more problems than those in ME)?
3. Do women on HRT develop more nodules than those not on HRT?

She really stumped me with these questions and I know if I ask them of my surgeon on my next visit, I won't have any more real knowledge than before I asked.

Thanks.

Wendy,
In the almost 2 years I follow this forum (and others), I read heaps of questions, and sometimes an attempt to answer some of them. And, almost every day there is a new question.
Yours seem to be again new, at least to me.
Honestly, I can't see you expecting to get an answer, at least not an answer based on data or facts.
Sorry :)

Questions

Wendy,
I believe that most information I have read is that there is a direct correlation between the earlier the onset of DC, the more chance for recurrence and severity of the problem. It seems like that information is also similar to many of the posts I have read on this forum in the last couple of weeks.

What textbooks are you referring to that you don't think are correct or misleading? They(most textbooks) are based on samplings and studies that are far more extensive than the individual experiences on this forum. There have been good ones mentioned on this forum that are available in the library. Most of us only have a very limited number of acquaintances that have DC.
