I practice in the UK.
I am surprised that your surgeon has requested such a letter - but impressed at the same time - it is best practice to check out a patients psychological status in these circumstances.
From what you have said I would not expect your psychiatrist to have any concerns about you having the surgery.
Please get back to me if you wish.
Ok, many thanks. He's a very reputable surgeon where I live and caring so I understand where he's coming from. He said I'm not a psychiatrist just a simple surgeon. That's put my mind at rest, thanks!
