Seems to me your worst case is you got a lot of not such bad stuff. I know it isn't a trade off, but that sure sounds better to me than a little bit of really nasty stuff.
If it was a trade off I'd be bidding my seven for your six and throwing in a Maui condo as a sweetner. Of course, I don't have a Maui condo, but to be rid of my seven and get a six I'd engage in a little larceny. I know you're still going to fret about
the ten, and the 75% and I would too, but any surgeon is going to be anxious to get their hands on you --- you'll make their 25 year stats look good.
