Postponed my surgery date

The closer it got the more I decided I needed a second opinion. New appointment scheduled for 01-15-03. Don't doubt the result will be the same but I will feel better. Thanks for all your support, I will let you know my new date when I have one.

I think that was a very wise move! If you're not totally comfortable with your decision, it's best to get a second opinion. This is major surgery and you want to be absolutely sure that you've exhausted all avenues before you commit to this course of action.

Best wishes and I hope it all turns out well for you.

Hi WiscOkie,

I'm also glad that you decided to get a second opinion before going ahead with your surgery. I firmly believe that everyone should obtain a second opinion before any kind of major surgery (unless it's for a life-threatening reason), and if the second opinion differs from the first one, then a third opinion would be wise, too.

Please let us know what you find out after your appointment.

Good for you.
this is major surgery - and irreversible.
the time for second thoughts is BEFORE!!!

the more prepared you are for this surgery going into it, the better able you are to cope afterwards in the event (heaven forfend) that anything should not work out the way you expect or hope.
You can feel comfortable knowing that you did your homework and made the right choice for YOU.

I hope your appointment goes well - let us know, one way or the other what the results are!

best wishes
