Customer Question
I had emergency surgery...

I had emergency surgery on 12/27 in CA on my small intestine ... It was to repair a surgery done in Nashville for a ventral hernia

Doctor's Assistant: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?

No antibiotics as I just returned to home here Sunday and no dr yet here... They took out staples there and have the plastic pieces and stitches in still...am flying back to have those removed and a follow up by the surgeon in LA ON WED

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

This is the 7th surgery since 2012 on my tummy...had diverticulitis ...part of my colon removed...illiostomy and reversal then 4 hernias/a lot of mesh and chronic pain ..I am supposed to start Lyrica

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you had the pain? What seems to make the pain better or worse?

No oozing or fever... Just some redness and pain to the touch

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
