Medical advice

I just thought I would post some advice.

If you have to have surgery, GET A SECOND AND THIRD OPINION.

If you decide to go with it, RESEARCH THE DOCTOR AND SEVERAL OTHER DOCTORS BEFORE DECIDING ON ONE.

If you are not sure about something, ASK QUESTIONS.

If something doesn't feel right, KEEP ASKING QUESTIONS UNTIL YOU GET AN ANSWER.

I failed to do this.

I can be really smart but then I can be trusting and naive at times. My trust was broken and I am now paying for it. Time will tell what happens in the future.

Please don't let it happen to someone you know.

  1. Not really. Being referred to a super specialist. I have been warned that I am looking at 2 surgeries in my future because of this. :-(

  2. I totally agree. You have to be your own medical advocate. I hope you recover soon.
