Re: [IP] pumping while in surgery & the Soft Serter CRUTCH



Sam,
You HAVE to tell the medical people b/f going in that under no circumstances do
you want NPH or whatever else you do not want in your body.  If they do it anyway
and you suffer any sort of physical problems then you sue the pants off of them.
You can sue them in civil court for battery.  The thing is you don't want to be in
some big law suit.  You would rather just avoid that and have your wishes
followed.  You have to make a big stinkin deal out of it b/f the procedure.  Make
sure everyone who will be working with and/or on you is on notice that you do NOT
want NPH etc.
