Re: which surgeons???
Hi Mike, welcome!!! I'm sorry but I can't help you anymore then the others have, but wanted to welcome you all the same!!! It's always best, to ask away whenever you have any questions! Especially when you're talking about something as serious as surgery!!! You have to protect yourself at all costs, and so there's nothing wrong with checking out your surgeon! You could even ask him for some credentials!! Just don't ask if he's had any mal-practice suits LOL! Some will even let you speak to other people they've operated on!!
This may sound stupid LOL, but I have to ask anyway!! Being in Alabama, do you know Ruben Studdard?? He's my velvet teddy bear LOL, and just wondered if you were fortunate enough to know him LOL!! I know it's off topic, but you're the first person I've met that's from Alabama, so had to ask LOL!!
Anyway, please ask around everywhere until you're comfortable with this surgeon working on you ok?? You have to be 100% sure and comfortable, before going through something like this!! I wish you all the luck in the world!! Keep us posted ok? ((HUGS)) Take care!
