Re: Leon 3 carat pad maybe I made a mistake

Wow, just came across this thread. What a great deal. I am super jealous! Have to admit I was hoping that you were going to decide to sell it :D (I have a September baby girl and have been looking for a blue sapphire for her, but would have happily taken this beauty instead.) Congrats!

Re: Are Anesthesiologists Failed Surgeons?

What?! I could say a lot of nasty things about surgeons, but will not because I am a professional :cheeky: I am an anesthesiologist and assure you, never did I have any desire (nor fail) to be a surgeon. Anesthesiology residency is 4 years; general surgery is 5. Both specialties may have additional ...

Re: Am I crazy for wanting a c-section?

Amc- I surely would not blame you for preferring a c/s after that experience! I had a relatively easy induction, but the recovery from tearing and swelling etc was much more significant than I ever imagined.

Re: Doctors with foreign medical degrees-what do you think?

Honestly, being a doctor is not THAT hard. For most routine things, PAs and NPs are very effective. US med schools do not graduate enough physicians for the future demand, with the ACA and our aging population. I can't see it making any difference for the vast majority of people. Wow, I would love ...
