my first surery was with an epidural and I made it ok. My cardiologist had said I wouldn/t make it , but I did. The Doc I just saw was another surgeon. I have been satisfied with my regular surgeon, but he figures that once he has cut he is finished. The stoma sarted out at 7" by 2" and is now 7" x 4 1/2" and still growing. I don't know how long I have, but if it has doubled in size in 6 months I don't expect it to go much longer. I need to see an anasthesiologist and my cardiooligist again before I begin to fret too much. I have been trying to wind things up. I have a valuable book collection, but I don't think that anyone else is aware of how valuable some of the books are. for example I just found a Nero Wolf mystery, a first edition that is now selling for a sum between $500 and $3000. My edition looks to be about $650. So I am inventorying my books, fine art, and other collections and trying to in some way evaluate them for my wife and kids. It is just that I don't like to have to do this, because I always thoought I was invincible. Now I am just scared.
Hi, I think they might not want to risk it for themselves and any liability, but what if you sign a waiver or something. I see them work on tiny premature babies, who can't breath and have heart problems but they never never give up trying to save them. I just don't get how they think it is ok to give up on you. You deserve a chance too. God Bless, and please get another opinion.
