You can't be too careful!

This article is a reminder that you cannot be too careful ------ you need to make absolutely sure with any medical procedure, big or small, that you and your physician are on the same page! Take a family member or a friend with you if you need back up or are feeling too ill to do it on your own. The case in the article is in Australia, I will guarantee you if it happened in the US it would be more like $1.7 million rather than $170,000.
