I would like to respond to your statement about this being a gel not a far as not being approved by the FDA. Tell that to the women whom had the breast implants....putting foreign substances into our bodies is pretty much unknown territory. There is a reason that intergel was not approved in this of them being the increased number of infections. Shortly before you told us of your success with intergel I had read an email from another woman that went to Germany (I think that is where this took place) and had intergel placed and she is now worse off than she was before her surgery. She also developed problems with infections.

I do not want to deny you the right to be happy with your surgery...I just urge caution since it has not been a great length of time since you had your procedure done. I pray that you have indeed found an answer to your problems....but as someone that took the drug phenfen...which was approved too quickly by the fda...and suffers from heart valve leakage because of it....I beg that we allow the fda the time necessary to determine if Intergel is indeed safe and does achieve the results it claims to.
