This is absolutely correct.

But that's my opinion though. Everyone has to weigh the pros and cons. I had absolutely no trouble after surgery and my doctor said I was a textbook perfect example of healing...

The choice is yours and no doctor or person can talk you into or out of anything. You have to make of your own mind.
