My best friend of 40 years died after having Lap Band in Little Rock AR,
The doc said he had done 500 of them without any problem. I watched her die in front of me. Everything was OK, then 1 hour afterward, she bleed into her abdomen. MOST AWEFUL experience of my life. Ive been a nurse for 24 years. Her B/P dropped so fast. Lawsuit pending.
Please, Please research and research the docs and ASK questions and BE LOUD if you think something is WRONG.
I do however think it is a GREAT surgery for some people.
VERY risky. BEST wishes.
I miss her so much.
