It is important to understand that this forum in no way constitutes medical advice. Your choice of treatment, or indeed whether you receive treatment at all, rests with you and your physician(s).
We know that each individual patient has differing needs, concerns, desires, and medical situations. The information on this forum may help you learn the opinions of other patients, and may suggest questions you can ask of your doctors or research yourself, but it is not medical advice. The ANA website has a list of questions to ask your doctor.
You don't have to post messages to the forum but you are strongly encouraged to share your thoughts and experiences. The more information that is shared, the better. Whatever your questions, you will find many persons willing and eager to provide information and suggestions -- and most of all, strong moral support that comes from a shared medical problem! You are definitely not alone in facing AN. ANA recommends that all new users read and understand the Netiquette Guidelines and Helpful How-tos for Newbies.
