Sometimes impatient folks go for “Shortcuts” in health care.
Your Physician Assistant advises against anything that represents a danger to your health.
For example, some people elect weight loss surgery.
But, could you achieve better results with exercise and healthy eating?
And any time you manipulate your body, side effects can result.
For example, weight loss surgery may leave excess skin dangling on your body.
And, besides the cost of the weight loss surgery, you could face the cost of skin removal surgery two years later.
Each of these surgeries could cost as much as a small car. And, insurance does not cover the cost of most skin reduction surgeries.
But, whatever you do, use the kind of follow-up health testing and health management that your Physician Assistant advises.
You owe yourself the monitoring that keeps you recovering.
