I have had two operations in the locale of the neck and have been told I need an operation behind the chest wall. Has anyone else had this experience? The surgeon has a great reputation and considers me his first failure in his career. I hate to be that one in a million.

  • I have the same problem as you but have not been able to locate a doctor who will set me up with a thoracic surgeon to complete the job that was missed twice. Can you tell me a little more about symptoms you are having if you do not mind?
