Surgery is just one way doctors do this. I have asthma. Part of the treatment is a long term inhaler. Which one I am on at any given time depends on which doctor sees me when I am in crisis. Some like Dulera, some like Advair. None bother to listen to me about which works. It is always “I don’t like” or “I prefer you be on “. Why can’t the medical profession learn to listen to the patient as well as read their version of the chart?
