Appointment with Dr De La Cruz

Impressions of Dr De La Cruz:
Really nice, understanding, did not give me a lot of information I didn’t need. She talks very fast, is not all that articulate, but I would feel confident with her doing the surgery – she is the head of this department.

General info from her:
Has she seen the CT scan? Is the tissue viable for a flap transfer?
She hasn’t seen it but will look.

Her recommendations:
She will do the surgery; her concern is not about downsizing. Her concern is more that I might not have enough tissue and then they would need to use muscle – this could lead to hernia later on. She also wants me off the methotrexate – it will make it hard to heal and can lead to infection.
