I have to have some blood work done later this week and see my surgeon next Friday. Maybe someone can answer a few questions for me?
1. It sounds like I'm just going in to see the surgeon for a follow up. Shouldn't this have happened before 3 months?
2. What should I expect from the check up? Reading of my lab report, pushing on my side, and "What questions/concerns do you have for me" question from my surgeon.
3. My lung was punctured during surgery and my wife had asked the surgeon a few days later why I had a chest tube and he casually mentioned my diaphram collapsed. However, my regular Doctor read the report and informed me about the injury during surgery. I don't have the most "faith" in this surgeon anymore. Should I jump ship after my 3 month exam?
I haven't really put much thought into any of these questions until the last few days as my check up lingers ahead. Thanks for any advise...
