Thanks again so much!
I am going to meet with the Dr. next week - Friday.
I had already met with another Dr. in the office, but he was an *ss and I would definitely not go to him - he couldn't understnad why I even deigned to ask him questions about the surgery. Yeesh!! Awful.
Am going back to the initial Dr. I saw - the one who had already seen me and given me the injections in the past. He's very nice; just tends to be available a lot less.
On the other hand, the other surgeon who was so rude is actually also a hand transplant specialist who's been written up all over the Internet. I'm sure he's a good surgeon, but he's a truly awful human being, IMO.
I think so many of the surgeons start thinking / acting like they're G*d, because of the work they do. Very sad.
