There are a lot of new procedures and surgeries available today that I don’t know much about, for example bariatric surgery. Any type of health procedure or surgery should be researched to some degree by the patient or their family so they have some knowledge about what is going to happen. That is what our family does. And it’s always an excellent idea to get a second opinion which is also something we have done. On one occasion, the second opinion revealed that the procedure was not even necessary, and the professional who gave the first decision agreed with the second opinion. So my advice, try to always get a second opinion!
