I wish that I would have asked Dr. Thompson if he had done the surgery and how many he has done on my particular foot and I just kind of said I didn't want the surgery but I what I wish you would have asked me why and explained how he would have proceeded with the surgery if you were going to do it on me and that was partially my fault. I kind of left upset with myself for not asking the question. But when you get there, you kind of forget things despite the fact that I did have a paper full of questions for him.
