Question about previous medical history on surgeries
Patient : I am going to have breast reduction in 3 weeks and when i was filling out the medical history forms it asked about previous surgical history. I had an abortion about 3 years ago, but I wrote that I've never had any surgeries because my parents were sitting next to me and they do not know. Is it important for the doctor who will do my surgery to know of this past surgical procedure (abortion)? Would it affect this surgery in any way if someone has had previous surgeries?
