Questions To Ask Your Top Surgeon During Your Consultation
Choosing a top surgeon often isn’t easy. This is a major decision that will affect the way your chest looks for the rest of your life. After you’ve done your research by looking at different results on transbucket and hearing what other people have to say about the bedside manner of different surgeons, you’ll likely have significantly narrowed down your list. A good way to really get a feel for a surgeon, though, is to have a consultation. Most consultations with top surgeons are free and conducted over the phone or through skype, although some surgeons will request that you come to their office if you live nearby. During the consultation you can expect them to give you a rundown of the surgery and ask you if you have any questions. In order to make sure you get the most out of your consultation, here are some ideas for questions to ask:
1) How much will the surgery cost me all together? Does the quoted price include the anesthesia?
2) Do you accept insurance?
3) What is your pay schedule? Do I need to put down a certain amount of money to reserve a surgery date?
4) How long do I need to be in town for the surgery? Do I need to go in for a pre-op appointment and will you have me come in for a post-op appointment?
5) Given my cup size, would you recommend the double incision or peri-areolar surgery?
6) Do you use surgical drains? If so how long will I have to have them in?
7) Will I have to wear a surgical binder? If so how long will I have to wear it?
8) Do you require your patients to go off of testosterone before the surgery? If so for how long?
9) Are there any supplements or dietary changes you recommend before the surgery in order to aid the healing process?
10) How long have you been doing this surgery?

just scheduled an appointment for a consultation next tuesday at Alma Midwifery and Birth Center - i can’t wait! i rode past it the other day and it looks absolutely beautiful from the outside - a little refuge from the city surrounding it. it’s in a part of town that i love (and lived near for awhile) and only about ten minutes from our house, which will be totally awesome once i go into labor - only a little time being uncomfortable in the car.
between the beautiful landscape, the gorgeous laboring tubs/rooms and the relaxing layout of the place, i’m really hoping we can get in. it all depends on if we click with the midwives (which, after reading their bios and philosophies, i think will be easy), if they have a spot open (which at this point, i think we’re getting a pretty early start) and if my insurance will cover it (bastards). fingers crossed, because i get really anxious thinking about having our baby in a hospital if i don’t need to. i just really want to have him/her in an environment that is peaceful and loving and relaxing, and where i won’t be pushed to have an epidural or give birth laying on my back.
Sometimes we learn from our mistakes ...
… but we don’t need to. We don’t need to make mistakes and we wouldn’t even make them if we would just consult with God first. Just ask him before making a decision.
Joshua discovered this in the second battle in the new land. Because he assumed it was okay to go ahead men died. If he had checked with God he would have discovered that sin had entered the camp and it needed to be dealt with.
When David went to bring the Ark of the Covenant up into Jerusalem he did not check with God first. As a result a man died and David was very upset. It was after checking that he discovered that only the Levites were allowed to carry the Ark:
“It was because you, the Levites, did not bring it up the first time that the Lord our God broke out in anger against us. We did not inquire of him about how to do it in the prescribed way.” (1 Chronicles 15:13)
James said that we don’t have because we don’t ask. All our Father is asking is that we would consult with him first, especially considering that our lives no longer belong to us. So save yourself a lot of trouble and check with Daddy first.
How to get the most out of your tarot reading: 6 tips to maximize your experience.
- Do some research on your reader. This can be done by asking them about their code of ethics, what they’re comfortable doing, or how they feel about different situations in dealing with clients. Fortunately, a lot of readers have websites where you can see not only their code of ethics and some sample readings, but also feedback. Feedback can be very important to a reader and they usually have no problem sharing positive feedback with potential clients, paid or not.
- Come with an open mind. If you go into the reading with ultimatums and expecting a specific outcome, you’ll probably be disappointed. Most readers are under the impression you seek them out for their interpretations of the cards, and if you insist they’re doing things incorrectly, you’ll both end up frustrated.
- Ask a good question. The future of your life is based on you and you alone. If you ask a question that negates your own power in your life, you are less likely to get a truly helpful answer. For example, asking “when will I find a new lover?” asks literally when the querant will find a specific person. But what if the querant never leaves their home and expects the lover to find them? What if the querant has a very specific set of standards and expects the new lover to fit into them, and doesn’t consider anyone else? They may never find the lover they seek. Try phrasing your questions in a way that shows you accept your power or responsibility in your own life. For example, “what do I need to know about finding a new boyfriend/girlfriend?”, “what can I do to help find a new lover soon?”, or even “am I doing the work I need to be doing to find the new squeeze I’ve been hoping for?” are excellent alternatives to the original question.
- Don’t offer anything the reader doesn’t ask for. Some readers may ask for a bit of background information, some prefer to only know the question, while others ask questions as they share the reading. The best thing to do is recognize that the reader is experienced enough to know when to ask for information. For example, if the reader says “Have you been stressed out about your relationship?” it’s better to say ‘yes’ or ‘no’ then to launch into a full explanation of why the relationship has been weighing heavy on your heart. Wait until the end of the reading to explain what’s going on. This helps you to get the big picture, and for the reader to fully relay everything in the cards.
- Keep in mind how often you ask a specific question. Repeating a question because you want to see what different readers say, or because you may be fishing for a specific answer, is more likely to confuse you and blur all the answers together than it is to actually help you. If someone gives you a really off reading, that’s one thing. But asking the same or similar questions multiple times indicates that you aren’t paying attention to the answers you’ve been given in the past. Sometimes readings will be complete duds because people already know the answer to their question, but they don’t want to admit they do, or they are hoping the answer will change.
- Take notes as you go along, or save the reading for later. There are usually things relayed in a reading that don’t make sense right away. If anything seems like it doesn’t fit, make a note of it and look into it when the reading is finished. Often times you can look back on a reading and see exactly how things made sense - but only if you have a decent record of the reading ;)
Hospital Round Up
So I had my consultation today. It was okay, but not great. The PET scan showed no change, but also no improvement. There was lymph node activity, but whether that is down to cancer or just a minor cough at the time of the scan, we can’t tell. I might have to have a biopsy or a second surgery of the lymph node tumour under my left collar bone. Also my CA-125 tumour marker has gone up, from 4 to 25. Max normal is 32, but it’s a 5-fold increase and none too reassuring. I should hear about today’s blood test result tomorrow over the phone, and I’ve got another appointment to go to in December.
On the plus side, I came home (with olive oil, lime cordial, curry paste, mango chutney and a tupperware full of applesauce clanking in my bag) and everyone had decorated the house while I was away. We even have a christmas tree. Everything is festive and nothing hurts!
