There's no harm in doing that, especially if you're uneasy about the first diagnosis. Visiting a specialist, rather then a general practitioner, may be the way to go.

a second opinion can never hurt.

Without knowing more information about your insurance/finances situation, it is hard to offer much advice, except that if it improves your son's life, it is worth it.

Do what you can afford, and let the doctors know what your situation is, there are many options available for help.

Doing what is right for your son should guide your actions.

always get a second opinion on something major, but it may turn out he's right and what else can you do then?

I agree with them, a second opinion can't hurt. And don't give up till your satisfied with the doctors answers and you know your options, after all he is your son and you/he are entitled to the best treatment possible. Never hesitate to ask your doctor a question or get a second opinion, just a little input from personal experience. Good luck.

I'll third or forth that.... :D

The way I look at second opinions is that the more input you have on any subject then the better decision you can make. And doctors are like anyone else, they can make honest misdiagnosis.

So yep, get a second or even a third opinion. Don’t stop until you fully understand the problem and recommended solution.

And do some research on the Internet. There is a huge amount of information from very respectable sites about almost any ailment.

And good luck with everything! I hope everything turns out ok. :thumbsup:

I would look into a specialist for sure. A general practitioner is good for just that, general help with general problems.
