    NO problemo SMW. BW I didn't know that physicians had the choice of deciding which patients to see.

    That's a great site. I found a link on the site about people who become obsessed with having a healthy limb amputated. They are not hypochondriacs, but only have a strong desire to have a limb amputated. There's definetly some ethics involved if a person goes to a surgeon to have their healthy leg amputated. Some doctor in the UK perfromed two such amputations, citing that if he didn't perform the surgeries the patients would risk their lifes by using extreme measures to personally cut thier limbs off.

    This stuff is something else; almost disturbing. If you're interested link up to the site E01 posted and thier near the bottom you can link to a small article. You can then link to a larger article when you click on one of the references.
