    Re: Questions to ask my surgeon

    Hi April,
    Just off the top of my head I would have a few questions, although the first is really a request/demand.
    1. I would like a copy of all my hospital records – tests, observations, and conclusions – the works.
    2. Would you please explain to me, in layman’s terms, how things were improved, where I stand now, and what I can expect in the future?
    3. Are there any precautions I should take?
    4. What should I start doing – and when?
    5. Do you have any comments and suggestions for me?

    The questions do seem to overlap quite a bit, but their just a jumping off place for your own thoughts. Look forward to a better, more beautiful tomorrow.
