This reads to me like someone who just took a creative writing class. Very descriptive. “A for effort.” F for that last comment “may you get what you deserve.”

What I dont get is the why...Why would someone troll this type of surgery? I too found the story lacking credibility, but dont understand why a person would go to this trouble. Boredom? Hate? No idea...

The story is way too detailed, like when someone makes up a story/lie and overloads it with information and unnecessary detail in an effort to make it believable, but in doing so make it unbelievable.

The risk of gastric leak is around 1 in every 200 surgeries. Patients are explained the risks. I signed a paper before being wheeled back acknowledging that I realized I could have complications and potentially die. I did end up with a massive GI bleed and the beginning of sepsis. Would do it again.
Sorry that happened to you, what surgery did u have

How does “the sleeve around her stomach” come loose? I can only assume this is either a made up story or you clearly have no idea about what a gastric sleeve is. It’s not a literal sleeve put around a stomach. It cannot “come loose”.

I pray you get what’s coming to you. Karma is, indeed, a bitch.

When she talks about the prior reflux surgery that her wife had and they didn't know about it until they were in the process of the surgery...that was not a very well planned surgery. I have had that reflux surgery and am having my RNY on 9/16. It takes a special doctor and about 6 hours of surgery to do the takedown and then do the RNY surgery. I can see why see had so much trouble healing. The doctor didn't know what he was doing.... This is a VERY special kind of gastric bypass with the takedown of the Nissin before the RNY. Healing doesn take a lot longer and is a lot harder due to all the holes and stitches that have to heal. Please don't let this post determine your decision about WLS. The benefits normally outweigh the negatives.......

Alright.

You've all been warned. I can do no more.

May you get what's coming to you then.

I totally get your pain. I can't imagine. Perhaps more accurately, don't want to imagine.

If you need to talk, find someone. If you can't find anyone, PM me and I will as often and long as you need.

Personally, I accepted that I might die from surgery. The last thing my surgeon said before wheeling me in was "You know you might die in surgery? Do you want to continue?"

It never occurred that I might writhe in agony for weeks before I did it. Something pre-ops should definitely ponder.

I died during my bog-standard tonsillectomy when I was 4, and my abdomnioplasty when I was 45. Each time I hemorrhaged but I felt no pain. I'm even more thankful now thanks to your story.

My thoughts are with you.

What really got me was the use of detailed McDonalds and pizzarias etc .
This is just bull from one side to another. I never doubt one out of some hundred patients have complications, but this story is only trolling.

Agreed

Very sad to read this !! As a nurse this just doesn’t all seemed to not add up. Also we would need to know all the details of pre-existing conditions which plays a huge role in complications. Also 6 months before the surgery seems pretty rushed before - I prepared almost 1 1/2 to ensure I knew exactly what I was getting into.

I do hope everything is well with your wife

This is a very rude statement. According to the rules of this site: Posts that are forbidden include, but are not limited to, the following: Rude posts.

This is a first time poster and I find the content of the OP to be rather questionable.

There is an artifact left in the account that makes me believe it was lifted off the Internet. The artifact is < /span>. The <span> tag is an inline container used to mark up a part of a text, or a part of a document.

In reviewing the post, I asked the questions WHO, WHAT, WHERE, WHEN.

The where an the when appears to be the Seattle, Washington area around 9 February 2019, that is the date of the SNOWMAGEDDON in 2019 that struck the Seattle Area dumping 4-8 inches of snow. To support this observation, in the article it mentions the West Side, which is part of Seattle. It mentions Richmond Hospital. There is Richmond Internal Medicine hospital located in Shoreline, WA. It mentions St. Paul's Hospital, but from my perspective this is not really a hospital but rather it is a small clinic called St. Paul's Medical Clinic in Seattle.

One of the things that attracted my attention was SNOWMAGEDDON 2019. The OP said it dropped 20 cm. of snow. Who in the U.S. would say 20 cm instead of 8 inches?

The whole article is overly melodramatic.

The OP identifies Dr. Kantner as an Obesity Specialist. There is a Dr. Jenny Kanter who received her PhD from the University of Washington in Pathology in 2010, with a specific focus on myeloid cells inflammation in the development of diabetes-accelerated atherosclerosis. Her specialty includes diabetic kidney disease. So this may be the WHO. But another thing that attracted my attention was the article opened with her diagnosis of advanced liver fibrosis. Liver fibrosis can be a very serious condition. Liver fibrosis is the excessive accumulation of extracellular matrix Proteins including collagen that occurs in most types of chronic liver diseases. Advanced liver fibrosis results in cirrhosis, liver failure, and portal hypertension and often requires a liver transplant. It can be a life ender. This is a serious medical condition. Some research seems to indicate that gastric bypass surgery can help with this condition but only sometimes. So although the OP seems focused on the bariatric surgery component, the liver fibrosis disorder is very serious complication.

Another thing that bothered me was the OP description of the surgery. Gastric bypass is a complex surgery. When I had it done several years ago, I was in the hospital for 2 days after surgery. This was routine. A few years have passed since then but bringing someone home the same day of surgery seems rather unwise. Yet that is what the OP expected.

The OP mentioned that the sleeve had come loose. What does that mean exactly? There can be several complications associated with sleeve surgery. So revisions may be needed sometimes, I haven't heard of a sleeve coming loose. There is a form of weight loss surgery called Lap-Band surgery. In this procedure, a bariatric surgeon places a a silicone ring with an expandable balloon around the upper part of the stomach. This creates a new, smaller stomach pouch. These bands have been known to come loose and slip and need adjustments. During the gastric sleeve operation, around 80% of the stomach is removed. The remaining section of the stomach is formed into a tube-like shape about the size and shape of a banana.< /font>
