My SO announced that surgery is the specialty of choice. I am VERY nervous about what this will mean for our future. SO began acting with what SO described as "the surgery attitude" immediately following the rotation. I could live with it because I thought it was short term, now SO wants to specialize in surgery. I am truly afraid I will lose the relationship I have with SO because of the lifestyle, expectations, and attitudes that seem to surround surgeons, or that SO interprets as the expectations for surgeons. My child and I miss SO and the closeness that we had already and I just don't want that to get worse. Hopefully I am just over reacting. Are there any other spouses of a future surgeon out there or spouses of a current surgeon that can shed some perspective on this? TIA!
