Isn't it odd, in this time of technological marvel and information overload, that so much of the material we access online is so outdated?
Along with my recent stroke I am also a throat cancer survivor, approaching my 3 year remission anniversary on Sept 29.
I found that when I was first diagnosed and started researching my situation that the majority of the data online regarding prognosis and such,.. You know, The ultimate question of "how long do I have?" was so outdated.
And I mean really outdated. Like a decade outdated, according to my doctors anyway, who still to this day warn patients against relying on information gotten from the internet pertaining to nearly anything medical.
Same thing I was told by neurologists at the VA when I was recovering from my stroke.
Doesn't seem fair.
It seems like information would be updated or more current... but yet...I follow a lot of medical journals and medical social media and it seems like even when information from a "new" study is published or posted online, that deeper scrutiny ultimately reveals in many cases that what is being currently posted is really just something that has at it's base a pretty ancient (relatively speaking) point of origin.
