Too Many Cooks

If a broth can be spoiled By too many cooks That advice can, as well, be applied To a patient consulting With too many docs To determine what problem's inside. Each one hopes he can help But conflicting reports Put the questioner into a tizzy And the tests and the labs And the visits combine To add one more new symptom - that's dizzy. Frustration and pain, though, In tandem, demand A solution that might not be easy. Still, stepping on somebody's Toes may result In discomfort that borders on queasy.

Hope everything is ok Ilene, I can relate as when hubby was diagnosed with cancer we had 3 courses of treatment available each doctor was confident theirs was the best option - we went down the surgery line as the other 2 treatments didn't give hubby a second bite of the cherry so to speak and we were lucky as 5 years down the line he needed radiation treatment but all is good now:-) hugs Jan xx
