    Procedure or Surgery

    First, I wait in waiting room for two hours before they even take me back. I had the misfortune of being there the same day the head of pathology was receiving treatment. The doctor actually told me it was lunch time & left the room I was in with my head bleeding. I was told to get dressed & come back in a hour in a half. This took place April 3, 2012 @ Sylvester Cancer Center(Univ. of Miami) with Dr. Nouri.

    Decision Point

    Skin graph-I have had one so far(xenograph) and plastic surgeon says I may need another. I am seriously thinking about not doing it. Instead of the 2 wounds, I will have 3. I just want this to be over. I am tired of Doctors, hospitals, and fighting with the insurance companies.
