The internet reflection of the medical profession resembles the view through a fun-house mirror

The analysis of the tissue removed from my skull was essentially useless.

I have spent some hours trying to research the aftermath on my surgery in various places on the Internet. I conclude that there is absolutely no useful medical information to be had on the Internet unless you want to remove calluses, treat your sinusitis, or, in some fashion, affect your headache. Only nebulous conditions for which no actual treatment is effective is regarded as safe territory by the medical sites. For such conditions the medical sites can prescribe vague and ineffectual treatments of placebo-esque natures in certainty that they cannot possibly have any effect on you and that they are therefore not actionable. Could not someone, somewhere, put some information on the Internet that was not qualified and disclaimed into pointlessness?

Shit.
