Do you always follow Dr's orders to the letter, no matter what?

I try to....but I believe there are certain times when Dr's orders need to be revised.

  • For the most part. I always have untill my OB told me that I need to wear stockings when I was pregnant because I was passing out 3-4 times a day. And he told me this after I told him that it is a pre existing medical condition that has been getting much worse durring my pregnancy. Aside from that one time then yes i do.

  • I nearly cut the top of my finger off yesterday, and the dr told me to keep it elevated to keep it from swelling.........everytime i elevate it, it starts swelling, and hurting beyone belief!

  • Yes. I figure he knows what he's saying better than I do. If I'm not going to follow his orders, why go to see him in the first place?

  • For the most part I do but if I'm not afraid to tell me doctor when I don't think something is right for me.

  • Generally, yes. Not all the time though.
    I know me, I know my body, so I sometimes feel that they're wrong. That doesn't happen often, but when it does I follow my instinct.
