So yesterday I’m talking with the surgeon about simultaneous vs delayed reconstruction after he does his job (insert bionic woman sound) and how my understanding is that the general anesthetic is one of the most dangerous parts of surgery. He says to me…. Wait for it….
“I wouldn’t worry so much with someone as young and healthy as you. It’s probably less dangerous driving I-5 at rush hour.”
Me: in a smarty ass jokester tone: “Um you know I’m here cuz I caught a case of the booby cancers right?”
He laughs, and says “Well yeah, but other than that your young and healthy!”
Laughter is good medicine. I like this doctor.
