Hospitalization and surgery schedule

The final decision as to whether or not you can undergo surgery or which surgery is to be performed will be made when you actually see a doctor. Please also note that, despite traveling to Japan and seeing a doctor, it may not be possible to perform surgery due to your physical condition.
