On a site like Health, there will often likely be a temptation to close questions as being too personal, and not answerable because the advice would be too specific to that one person. I think we should try to be as useful as possible, and wherever possible, edit the question to reword it so that it is generic enough to be answered on this site rather than just closed.
It's difficult to apply a "rule" so broadly as stated. In general, we don't like to edit a user's question to change the context of what they are actually asking. Nor do we embrace this concept of "too localized", that someone's very specific question should be watered down to apply to all.
Sometimes you can take an interesting subject and make its contents sooo generic, that you take all the intriguing, applied questions on the subject, and turn it into a bland retreatment of articles you might find on Wikipedia. No thank you.
Before we identify an actual wide-spread problem on the site, I would suggest not taking that leap of saying all questions should be transformed into their generic form. I think you will find it will make the site less interesting and useful. But let's see how that pans out in actual practice.
We all know that we get a lot of questions for personal medical advice here, but I feel like some of these could be easily edited into something answerable, because the personal part of it is completely inconsequential to the actual question, for example this question has now been edited:
I feel like instead of close-voting, people could have simply done a similar edit by themselves. Even more importantly, this individual was clearly not asking for any sort of immediate advice, they were asking generally about medical practice; the personal part of it was merely them explaining their motivation with some vague mention of the future. The OP is clearly not intending to ever deliver a baby, they A) Saw something on TV and B) thought critically about whether this was a legitimate procedure or just made-for-TV.
I think most of us can agree that this type of question is so much different from these other recent questions that most definitely deserve close votes:
I think questions like these are clearly too personal and cannot be edited, and close voting is correct.
