  47. 47. Less than 24 hours after my initial appointment, I not only had a new diagnosis - a UT split tear - but had surgery to correct the problem. As I write this, my right arm is in a festive green, but otherwise annoying cast. The short-term hassle, however, should be more than worth the long-term gain - the potential for a future without chronic wrist pain. A future, that without Twitter and those in the medical community willing to experiment with new communications tools, might not exist for me. 3031031-10
  48. 48. The 37th Thesis Applying social media in health care isn’t just inevitable: it’s the right thing to do in the interest of patients.
