Talked to primary Dr about going to Mexico

Recommended Posts

I had a regular check up with my PCP today and I talked to him about my interest to have my surgery in Mexico. I printed off info from the 2 places that I'm interested in. He said that his only concern is the after care and what if something happens because more than likely surgeons here will not want to touch me. He said he did want to do his own research about the Dr.'s I picked. I said no problem and I appreciated it.

Has anyone ever had their PCP disagree with your choice of going to Mexico? If so, did you go ahead with it?

I didn't tell mine until I got back. We are actually good friends, and he was a little upset that I didn't tell him ahead of time. But he's should be used to it. I also found my own neurosurgeon and scheduled my own neck fusion surgery after he diagnosed me with bone spurs and stenosis in my neck.

He admitted he would have disapproved (that's why I didn't tell him). But my successful weight loss and outstanding 6 month bloodwork has convinced him that my crazy Mexico surgery adventure wasn't such a bad idea. And I know he would have done whatever it took to make sure I was taken care of if I had had any surgical complications.
