Several  days ago I was chatting with a surgeon about the successes of brain surgery.  I did not hear exactly what problem he said but he pointed to his abdomen, in the general area of the stomach, and said they do brain surgery to fix whatever it was in the abdomen.

 

Could anyone hazard a guess? Thanks.  hazel m

I would guess that if you are interested in what someone is saying you should either: A-listen to what they are saying, or B-ask that someone what exactly they meant, because some things(I would assume brain surgery included) are very complex and require context even for those who are experts on such things to be able answer questions about them accurately.

My mother has actually worked for a company that only preforms neuro-operative monitoring for nearly 30 years, and after 25 years of my life i still get completely lost when she goes in depth on a rant about a doctor not filling paperwork correctly. Let alone when i ask a simple question, and she has to spend 15 minutes explaining the very simplified basics of what i need to know to understand her answer.

Plus he kept right on talking a mile a minute and what he was telling was fascinating.  Interrupt him?  Never!  Then he had to rush off and my brain got busy processing and storing what I'd heard.  That's when the brain and I discovered the missing link.

 

Hmmm?  Could that rushing off have been to deter the perpetual questions of this perpetual questioner?  :sherlock:

To OP: There's not much to go on here, but the brain is connected to, well, everything else, including the abdomen, and the abdomen is home to nearly everything in your body that matters. This is merely an educated guess, but perhaps there was a neurological basis for a malfunction in a person's digestive organs. Perhaps the correct response wasn't being given. Also likely is the chance that the person had a glandular issue with the hypothalamar region. Perhaps the pituitary gland,

And, perhaps (absolutely) I need to do a lot more reading.  Certainly interesting.  Thank you.
