What a difference a doctor can make!
In July 2013 I had hernia repair done. At this time the doctor did not put in mesh, but I still got an infection. After it healed I was ok for a couple of years. At my yearly physical my primary doctor said I should go to the surgeon again because he felt I needed repair again. When I went to the surgeon he said to me, “At your first surgery you got an infection and it makes me really nervous to put mesh in.” If it made my surgeon nervous what do you think it did to me? I decided not to have the surgery. I was ok until October 2020 when I had a small bowel obstruction. I wasn’t feeling good and I went to the Urgent Care. The doctor on call examined my stomach and felt I should have a CT scan. That’s when they found the blockage. The nurse told me the surgeon was on his way in. I asked who the surgeon was and he said, “Dr. Schwaab.” I immediately felt at ease because he had done laser surgery on my legs and was wonderful. When he arrived he was so patient and told me he would have to rub my stomach and try to get the hernia pushed back in, otherwise he would do emergency surgery. It didn’t take him long and he said, “I think it popped in.” They did another CT scan and yes it was back in. I did stay the night at the hospital so that he could make sure it was ok. He told me he would come in the middle of the night if he had to and do the surgery. Luckily, I had a good night and he discharged me the next day. He told me his nurse would be calling me to set up a surgery time. He also explained to me that he would be using mesh and was very confident in the success he has had with the mesh. I was completely at ease and I trusted him 100%. The surgery was set for 4 days later. The surgery was a success and I had very little discomfort. Stoughton Hospital is so fortunate to have such a caring doctor as well as caring nurses. Dr. Schwaab has a great bedside manner, explained things to me and I knew I had the right doctor and things would be ok.
What a difference Dr. Schwaab made in my life.
