"...so I notice you still have your foot. That's great."
"Yeah, the surgeon really wants to amputate, but a friend told me something about a hyperbolic chamber, so I think I'm going to try that first."
"You mean a hyperbaric chamber."
"Whatever, yeah, I guess. They're good, right?"
"Honestly, I don't know a lot about hyperbaric chambers, and certainly I don't know the specifics about whether that's a reasonable plan for your foot. I'd listen to what Dr. Surgeon says. That's his expertise."
"He says he wants to amputate, or I could die of a septum infection."
"A septic infection."
"Yeah, yeah. But I'm going to try this hyperbolic chamber thing. Cause, you know, if I don't, I'd always wonder what if I could have saved my foot."
"Again, that's something to talk to Dr. Surgeon about."
"No, my friend got totally healed from the chamber thing. He had this burn on his skin, and it was like a miracle."
"Okay. Your issue is different from a burn. You have a wound that isn't healing because of a lack of blood flow."
"Sure, but if it can do one thing, it can probably do lots of things."
"I don't know what it can or can't do, but, generally, that logic doesn't really work. Some treatments are very good at very specific things, and not good at all at things that are not the same."
"No, if something works, it works."
"Well, like, you wouldn't take medicine that's great at treating infections if you had, say, high cholesterol."
"Because different medicines do different things."
"No, no, if it's good, it's good. And I'm telling you, you didn't see my friend, the hyperbolic chamber is an amazing thing."
"Hyperbaric chamber. And I think you're being a little hyperbolic when you talk about it."
"I was just trying to be funny. Never mind."
"I don't get it. You're not funny, doc."
"Yeah, don't worry about it. Just, please, talk to your surgeon and make sure he's on the same page. Septic infections are a real risk."
"I'm telling you, the chamber is going to heal this thing up. Maybe fix my blood pressure too. The oxygen, pressure, I think it's all related."
"It's good to be optimistic. Make an appointment for six weeks and we'll see how you're doing."
