Getting A Second Opinion

My mom has been having a great deal of difficulty all of a sudden with her arm. (She is not able to lift it, push with it, ect)  She saw her doctor about it who recommended surgey asap however she would rather not.  Do you think we should search for another alternative to surgery first?

Your mom’s problem with her arm may have many explanations. Before getting an operation, search out a second and even a third opinion. Think about all of your options and explore alternative therapies. It’s always a good idea to become as informed as possible so that you make your decision from knowledge and not fear.
