Ugh sex offenders. Feeling terrible for his victims. Glad he got caught.

His name is Arie Oren and this is very old news. It happened back in 2011. The judge sentenced the 66-year-old doctor to 4½ to 9 years behind bars in 2013. He's a sick sick person and I'm glad justice was served. I feel really bad for the 5 women he molested.

Of course, not all surgeons are sex offenders. Its old, but a good reminder that sex offenders can be people we see as trustworthy,

Thanks for the backstory and update, Alex. I was afraid of inserting gratuitous anxiety into whatever is already an emotional time for people considering weight-loss surgery. Unfortunately, scumbags like this exist in every profession but it's particularly egregious when it creeps into a supposedly trusted doctor-patient relationship.

So, this guy is probably out of jail by now. Lost his license. A registered sex offender.

As it is with cases like this (I have a long history of childhood sexual abuse, including a miscarriage at age 12), the victims' lives are affected forever. Yes, I had many years of therapy including support groups. Yes, I know the shame and blame is with the perpetrators, but that fact doesn't always sink in during intrusive flashbacks or other times of emotional distress. PTSD doesn't just disappear the day the molester is released from prison.

I think I'm having an especially rough day today. I can't quite put my finger on the source. Maybe the source isn't important. I'm trying my best to be positive, to forgive myself for little things that I could have made better choices about, to remember that I matter as a person too and that my well-being also counts. Sometimes I just need to hear that someone else cares, and that if the person could... they'd reach across this online forum and give me a much-wanted and much-needed big hug.

IN NEED OF A HUG ABOUT NOW.. and remember not to crush me, since I'm a smaller person (125lb less) with a less cushioned body. Don't worry about crushing my boobs though, since they have all but disappeared.

An article about this guy's case. What a sicko. Never really seemed to take responsibility for his actions. Had an excuse for everything. That probably contributed to his jail time.

      Donated 50 lbs of Jeans and another 30lbs of shirts to Salvation Army. 
      Had to go buy some new clothes that I used to hate, but now kind of like. Trying not to buy too many though as I know in a few months I'll be donating them as well.

      Hello everyone! I just joined the forum today. Had my surgery almost 3 months ago and lost about 44 pounds. Most of the weight was lost within the first month, and my weight loss slowed down almost to a stop. I became very frustrated. Talked with my dietitian several times, and it turns out I haven't been eating enough. Who knew! I was eating around 500 calories a day, and exercising daily. Well, I had to up my intake to 800 to 1,000 calories. I'll see what happens.
