Thank you for your post. I would suggest initally calling and setting up a follow-up appointment with your surgeon. If you are uncomfrotable with the ongoing patient-physician relationship then perhaps setting up a second opinion (ask your primary care provider for sugestion) would be a good plan as well. I am so sorry you have had such a difficult time. Good luck.View Thread
