    I hope the appointments are helpful to you! Obviously there is no "one" right answer, but it seems to me that the fact that you are wondering if you should tell him, means that the experience is significant enough (no surprise) that you should tell him. Good luck!

    hi Kara
    don't see any reason why not...and it was major surgery, which has an effect on everyone who experiences it...so it might help to let him know...

    Rich...am sending you a private message...

    Kara...i should tell you that i am a retired licensed social worker...and if a patient of mine had surgery, as a social worker i'd want to know about it...anything that has an impact on the physical or mental health of a person is of interest to any therapist...

    I think you are supposed to be honest with these psychiatrist types in order for the therapy to work, yes?

    Good luck, Kara. You'll figure it out.
