General Hospital (GH) introduces a dramatic twist as Portia emerges as the one recommending Curtis’ experimental procedure, raising questions about potential complications and emotional turmoil.
Curtis, driven by hope, may find himself facing unforeseen challenges, adding a layer of uncertainty to his journey towards recovery.
Portia Takes the Lead
The possibility that Portia was the one to recommend Curtis’ experimental procedure is revealed. Let us talk about the potential problems that arise because the GH writers gave Portia the upper hand in this.
After all, while Curtis was first paralyzed and recovering in his hospital bed, he conducted an extensive amount of research.
Curtis could have easily picked up that research again and pitched the idea to Portia on his own. Portia was asked by the authors to submit all of Curtis’s information for the experimental study to give him some hope.
Curtis is undoubtedly being led to believe that all of this is feasible by Portia, who is contributing her medical expertise to the discussion.
This type of procedure is not without risk, though, particularly since it is new and needs further research.
Portia’s Guilt and Emotional Strain
There are many ways that this could go wrong, so if something goes wrong, Portia might feel guilty. It is possible that Curtis will not get the desired results or that the procedure will not be successful.
Curtis may experience a delay in his ability to walk normally, leading him to believe that the procedure was a complete failure. Curtis might experience a severe depressive episode over something like that.
Curtis might even become determined to try something even riskier and seek out less acceptable experimental options as a result.
However, Portia’s suggested procedure might turn out to be hazardous. What happens if Curtis needs surgery that goes wrong and ends up being his last?
In that scenario, Portia would feel awful for even bringing up this experimental study. A situation where Portia is a wreck emotionally and blames herself, and Curtis is fighting to survive could occur.
Naturally, we are confident that Curtis will eventually be able to use his legs again. There may be a lot more drama before Curtis’ paralysis storyline concludes.
