I had a consultation with a surgeon in July. I had to drive to Memphis by myself and go to the UT medical center in Germantown. I was so nervous that I could not think of anything to ask the doctor. I have since come up with a list of general questions to ask about the surgery.

I was wondering what questions you guys would ask. I am kinda alone in this and really need any type of info I can get.

what kind of surgery are you having? Your sig says you were diagnosed but not what you have. Those two things would make a difference as to what you would ask.
