Satirical Advice column written by my alter ego J. R. Richard
Dear Advice Guy: I had a hysterectomy three weeks ago but no cancer was found. However, the doctors did find cancer in my uterus so that was removed as well. My doctor told me no follow up was necessary. Should I get a second opinion?
First, let me know who this doctor is. I donít know of any doctor that would tell a patient who has just undergone some major surgery to not come in for a checkup. This doctor doesnít practice out of a van under the bridge does he? You just had your vagina or whatever it is removed. Of course you should get a checkup. Why do you even have to ask? Iíll tell you what Iíll do, you come over to my place and Iíll be happy to take a look at you and give you a routine follow up. Since I am such a nice guy Iíll even throw in a free breast exam.
