As Kitt said, No yelling here only helpfullness. Post away my new friend. We are a strange bunch, but will help anyway we can. We have even been known to "Call out the Herd" and et them docs straightened out.
Seriuosly, if you feel the need to start a new thread by all means do so, but with this one getting attention you might jst want to add to it. I know my thread has gone several directions and I think that is so cool. I never mind anyone posting whatever on my thread, it gives it a life all it's own and makes for some interesting reading.
Don't be affraid to ask us anything, if we don't know it Kitt usually can find it. If the surgeon and the group is the way you say, Fire them! You don't need to deal with the "Holier than though" attitudes some surgeons have. I have been there and won't ever deal with it again. I just recently had to because of an emergency, but I am now with a great group of urologists. Please don't think because they have a reputation you have to go to them. There are plenty of great surgeons who aren't pompus asses out there. I am lucky t have a great thoracic/general surgeon, an awesome surgeon for my nissen, and a great urologist group now. None are the type to believe they are better than anyone. I feel truly blessed to have found them. I believe with all my heart you can too. Don't rush into this with a surgeon with a bad personality.
If you have read my thread from the beginning you are a reading fiend. That thing is long, but it, Denise's, Bea's, Rafael's, Griff's, Janice's, and so many others are so full of great information.
