Oh and you and your brothers should all now get a form from the chemist and ask your GP to sign it - you are entitled to free prescriptions

Sounds like you are exploring all options if you are seeing a surgeon too. Try and read up on the pros and cons of all the treatments and use this knowledge to quiz the specialists that you are seeing. Ultimately only you can make the decisions, just try and endure its a fully informed decision.
