: Her appointment with the DOC is several months away and we would like to know--- she has had pain in the rib cage and hip areas. Thanks---Harry
Dear Harry,
According to my Dr. anything under 1.0 requires treatment.Why does she have to wait for months if she has pain?
Maybe you should look for help sooner.
