HOW DO YOU KNOW IF YOU SHOULD GET SURGERY FOR INJURY?
If you are seriously injured in an accident, the need for surgery may be obvious. For example, if your spleen if punctured or you have a compound fracture. But in many cases, the need for surgery is not immediate. Maybe you have neck pain with arm weakness that doesn’t seem to get better. Similarly, you may have a scar that bothers you, but you aren’t sure is you should try plactic surgery to improve it.
When you are trying to decide whether to have surgery, there are two important sources of information: your doctor and your body. Of course, you also have to consider the cost – both for the treatment and the recovery time. Our injury lawyers always advise people to listen to their doctor. However, before undergoing non-emergency surgery, we also usually recommend you get a second opinion. Sometimes, a specialist will recommend a different type of therapy that might be effective. Of course, there are also times when the surgeon will advise that surgery may not solve the problem. Then you have an even more difficult decision to make.
