  2. Hi all! I'm a podiatrist in private practice and am planning on eleven days @ home post-op. I am busy @ work but have a great assistant and put off doing surgery for a few additional weeks. I'll just be seeing patients in clinic. Do u think I'll be ok? (assuming no complications!). Thanks for your input & thoughts.

    Having Staples Removed

    I'm a surgeon. Staples are absolutely a fine option compared to sutures, and they shouldn't hurt coming out but may pinch a tiny bit. When I am a patient I will have no preference. Sutures may leave a tiny bit less scar, and staples shorten time in the or by a tiny bit (negligible on both accounts) . Both are good options. Good luck!

    Feel Horrible

    Wow. I'm so so sorry for what u r Going thru. PleAse don't be so hard on urself. U had a rough time and will probably be fine next time, sounds like a fluke. My Dr. Has only one day of pre op liquids, so I bet ur surgeon will say it is fine. You will get thru this! I can understand how it must be overwhelming. Stay strong...thoughts and prayers w u.

    Surgery Tmrw!

    Re tracey, I know some pain and swelling is normal but I question what exactly is going on to keep her in icu? Abnormal swelling? Was there a complication? Don't be afraid to ask questions until u feel satisfied w answer. Sounds like something more is going on, but I'm not really in a position to say. Just my opinion. Please keep us all updated . Thoughts and prayers w u.

    Depressed :-(

    I haven't had surgery yet, but from what I read on this site it sounds like it gets easier by the week, and u will be able to eat small amts. Of a lot if the things u r missing. I'm on pre op diet (before pre op liquid phase). Good luck!
  22. Love this! U r so right!
  23. I understand & agree with u on that. I do a lot is charity medical care for people w very low paying or poor insurance. It is my choice to do so, but it can be frustratung when the cost if providing the care is more than the reimbursement, or ur only real choice is to give something away if it is critical to patients care. Again, I don't mean to complain because it is my choice to accept some of those patients and it has its own rewards. But sometimes I feel patients rarely see that side of things. But I agree about ur particular charges.
  24. I'm a Dr. & I would just like to remind u that what gets billed is NOT the same as what gets paid to the hospital/surgeon. There is usually a huge difference, and the physician & facility must accept the contracted rate. It's frustrating for patients and care providers both!
