True words from Justin Woods a survivor of multiple aortic disease issue:
"We know our bodies better than any doctor. If something isn't right speak up. Get the scans for proper diagnosis, find the specialist for the surgeries needed."
Also, advice for physicians: "Doctors, please listen to the patients. If they say they can't breath get them a lung doctor for consultation. If they say something hurts take the time to explain to them why and figure out what they need to manage the pain. And patients, please be patient. Recovery takes a lot longer than what "google" or the doctors say."
