Surgery for Me?

>> Tuesday, April 3, 2012

I had a three week check-up today for some in-office slice 'n dice I had at the doctor three weeks ago.  It didn't heal properly and now they want to do one to two more involved surgeries at the hospital in three weeks...pfft.  My family and their darn genetic digestive/gastro issues!

I asked the doctor what the worst was that could happen if I didn't do the surgery.  He mentioned that I wouldn't want to go 20-30 years like this and then went into what would likely happen - another infection, things bursting, yada yada yada.  I told him I was only planning on living another 30 years so maybe it's not so bad - no need for the funeral checklist just yet but I really do not want surgery.  I made a follow-up appointment with him in three months and will get a second opinion in the interim and also look into natural options.  For a slice 'n dice with anesthetic, I want to be sure it is the right choice before I commit.
