Richard's Story -- 

I had severe varicose veins with phlebitis. Rockford Memorial was suggested for the vein operation. When we set up the appointment, it was mentioned that MH ran in our family. My sister died in 1947 from complications associated with an appendix operation and my brother died in 1948 from complications associated with a car accident. Both deaths were thought to be MH related. With that information, Rockford Memorial gave the okay for the vein operation. However, the doctor and the anesthesiologist suggested that I get tested for MH prior to surgery. So, an appointment was made at the Mayo Clinic for the test. My son came along with me and tested negative while I tested positive. We then went ahead with the vein operation with no issues because the doctors and anesthesiologist were able to take the proper precautions after receiving definitive knowledge of my MH.
