There is a lipoma on my back (left side) over my ribs, the size of an apple. I am to have it removed in five days. Can I insist on lyposuction and a local? I am 70 years old, take no medications. I get elevated blood pressure readings when I become agitated. Hospitals agitate me.
I am terrified of anesthesia complications. I called the hospital today to speak with the anethesiologist. One will not be assigned until late Monday afternoon. I am losing sleep over this.
