Re: Skin Bridge

Dear krisb, the reason i suggested your parents is b/c @ some point Im sure the dr/ pediatrician mentioned options to them. They dont want to bring it up maybe because if your ok with it they dont want to make a big deal about it and change your acceptance of the bridge. Obviously, you dont feel ok about it & they may have options that they were told years ago. In your state are you considered an adult @ 17. Are you on their insurance? At 17, i think that you could better assess the risks with help, thats all. Like mc said you must not take a risk that outweighs the benefits. Rightly said its a decision that only you can make. I thought a little help to negotiate the rough waters may help you
with a better surgeon, if even needed, and treatment plan.
