Archive: surgical fires
By Andy Gordon on June 16, 2022
My first and last surgery was a couple of years ago. I’m glad I didn’t know then what I know now. My surgeon told me the risks were low and a favorable outcome was high. He didn’t mention that he’d be using instruments that would burn or at least char my flesh. He also didn’t say, “Oh, by the way, a fire might break out.” If he did, I’m not sure I would have believed him.
