I have just read through my last couple of posts and although I wouldn't change them because that is how I felt at the time and for the most part still feel now. However, I did take a big swipe at my doctor and doctors in general, and I do think that was a little harsh.
When it comes to my neurologist I have no doubt that every decision she makes, she makes in the best interest of her patient. But I don't think she really understand how much time I have spent researching this, how much time I have spent thinking about this. I know it is a long hard process. I know I might come out worse than when I went in. I know it might not work. I know I might even die.
I know the statistics. I know all about the procedure and yet I still want to do it, and I think that should be my choice to make. After all, I could go and do many stupid and dangerous things if I wanted to and not need sign off by anyone. I could go base jumping, swim with hungry sharks or play chicken with a brown snake. If I wanted to be really stupid and dangerous I could even start an argument with my wife;)
My point is that for everything dangerous there is normally a reward or potential of reward. And normally there is no one there to stop you. So my point is if I am informed and willing, why can't I? Stay well:
