I do not want to switch to a phone call I have already paid and I would like some 1 to give me advice please
Expert:  Dr. SH replied 2 months ago.

Sorry for the late response as I was away.

It would be very difficult to help you out without a picture for me to have a look at.

Would it be possible to provide a picture or two so that I can give a better opinion.

Thank you
