Now, a general practitioner may spend some time with his patient going over the ramifications of laparoscopic surgery, a set of procedures that he will not be participating in, but the patient hardly listens. Indeed, and understandably, her mind may be in faraway places. It is to be expected that both her mind and body may be placed under duress. But it is left to the general practitioner to relax the mind somewhat.
And that he should be able to do with relative ease. The patient’s ears immediately prick up, just as her collie’s would at the first sign of perceived danger. Advanced Laparoscopic surgery is nothing to fear. Advanced it may be but safe it certainly is. The GP must prep his patient beforehand. It is expected of him to be blunt but it is nothing like the blunt edge of a bad knife. He tells it like it is. It is to be expected.
There may be some discomfort. But nothing more than that. And in any event, it is quite possible that the patient will be receiving some form or another of anasthesia. In other words; should it ever come to that, should it come to be that the required procedure is complex owing to the condition for which the patient has been diagnoses, whatever pain might have been felt from making precise incisions will no longer be felt.
Advanced laparoscopic surgery is not necessarily an exacting practice in the sense that it removes a detected malignancy. It may be no more than an examination technique, over and done with within an hour or so. There is no longer the need for a patient to be hospitalised, even overnight at the bare minimum.
