Julie's Journey

talked to a friend

Talked to a friend who had been banded by the same doctor a couple of months before me. Imagine my suprise when she told me she lost her band to an erosion too.

Hmmmmm. Just a coincidence?? I think not.

I have been saying since my erosion that it was caused by the surgeon who did it. Everyone just told me, "Julie, it is a known complication of band surgery." And yes, it is a possible complication. A very rare one. For 2 people from the same surgeon to erode?? No conincidence there.

And to top it off, I looked online and he is still performing surgery in another state. Wonder how many more people he has maimed since he left???

That is really crappy. You have to wonder about the surgeon, for sure. Who is going to do your bypass?
