When is it time for surgery?
There are surgeries that are emergent and you have no choice about them. Then, there are surgeries that are "elective," and you get to make a decision about whether or not to have them and when.
I hate the term elective for these surgeries. They may be medically necessary to prevent the progression of your disease. Or, they may be the best option you have to improve your quality of life.
For those of you who have had surgery or those considering it, what made you or would make you decide surgery was necessary?
