I don't claim to know anything of this woman's story, as others do.
Let me share one thing: WLS or ANY SURGERY can go WRONG ANYWHERE.
It's not a geographical concern. We are quick to blame "Oh! It's because it's Mexico!" No.
I live in Massachusetts. My hospitals are TOP-RATED for Bariatric and Plastic Surgery -- and guess what? PEOPLE DIE FROM THINGS LIKE THIS HERE. My plastic surgeon lost his license to practice! This stuff happens!
The concern is, that she did not get anyone to listen to her complaints, as I see it?
"Hi, my name is Beth, I am seven years post weight loss surgery, and I've had abdominal pain for more than TWO MONTHS, have been to the hospital three times, and still I sit with no real concern from ANYONE."
I get it, as I may very well end up being a news-story, case-study or lawsuit.
This ONLY UNDERLINES THE NEED FOR SELF-ADVOCACY. And, the need for others to HELP someone when they CANNOT ADVOCATE FOR THEMSELVES.
Enter the BBGC. Okay. I'm over it for the moment. Raar.
