Honestly my experience with medical professionals is they are basically idiots. I've had several family members die or not receive proper treatment due to misdiagnosis of disease. I've also had a doctor who kept accusing me if drinking red bull and beer causing pain in my sides, even though I didnt drink either at the time AND WOULD NOT STOP. So yeah, I have no faith in doctors or their prognosis of anything going forward. It wouldnt be a career ruining lie at all, you just say he had an unexpected set back. So maybe I am biased against them, I'm just saying it would really be irrelevant to me what they say, because like I said I believe they are more often wrong than right.
