Yesterday afternoon I met yet another new to me doctor. I had t find someone to do a pre-op for my surgery. I think the doctor nearly choked when he heard what surgery I was having. Then I think I saw glimmers of dollar signs in his eyes. Actually he was very nice and helpful.
So an EKG, full blood panel, and chest x-rays (ah, even more radiation) are now behind me.
And that is a relief.
