There is always questions about second opinions. The most common question seems to be, "did you get a second opinion"?. Often it is posed as a suggestion such as, "why don't you get a second opinion"?
I've been hearing about the second opinion thing for 50 years and I still do not understand. If you get a "second opinion" and it differs from the initial opinion what do you do? Go with the one that your well meaning friends suggest? Go with the one which is least painful? Flip a coin? Consult an astrologist?
I happen to be caught up in this dilemma. One surgeon says he can not operate, the second opinion says bs , of course we can operate.
Which one would you choose? Why???
