I'm thinking about going to either the Mayo Clinic (in Jacksonville, FL, about 2.5 hrs away) or the Cleveland Clinic (Weston, FL, about 3.5 hrs away) for a third opinion on a plan to get rid of my obstructions.
They're both so far away from me...how do I go about contacting them or know what surgeons are good or whatever? Has anyone ever traveled this far for treatment? It seems like a HUGE undertaking, driving that far away to just get a consult, and then do subsequent tests, and then if there is surgery, etc...
I am just so overwhelmed. I'm not sure where to start. I don't have any family here to drive me there or come with me, and I'm just so exhausted of all of this and don't want to take time off my job because I love it so much and don't want to put it in jeopardy.
Thanks so much for all of your input. Don't know what I'd do without you guys.
