I was looking on GOOGLE for a lecture given by my surgeon, Dr. Robert Hart. I USED to have his name in my signature, but just erased it. Why? Well on GOOGLE under his name were 3 of my posts on this blog where I mentioned him. Boy, was I surprised!!!! Fortunately all were very general and described my questions, with no comments about his care, which I think is very good. Just sayin', think about what you say about a doctor as you might find your comments on page 1 of a GOOGLE search under your surgeons name!

Hi Susan, Thanks for the tip on the Google thing. Yeah, that would kinda be a bit of a surprise to see your post! I've been wanting to thank-you for the card you sent and let you know how I appreciated it. I have been so slow this summer. It doesn't help we have had a terribly hot summer. My surgery is Feb. 11th(a week earlier). I told them to please call ~~~that we're available at any time. My ribs grind on my pelvic bone ! And I am on pain meds that most people are on after surgery. That worries me. As tolerance can be a problem, unless there's a real good pain team at the hospital. Listen to me ramble on~~~sorry! Stay in touch. Linda

If it makes you feel any better, the first post for "Robert Hart scoliosis" is mine praising his video talk and honesty, but suggesting that he needs to comb his hair :)

I agree about the hair thing, that's maybe a NW thing. He wears jeans and an Oxford shirt to clinic, so he does have a relaxed style.

Just saying that your doctor and lots of others can read your posts. I knew that our blog was public and I would say anything that I said here to my doctors...just on the first page of Google was pretty amazing!
