Doctor Recommendation for Gastric Bypass Revision: Hernia in Esophagus and Leaking Mesh
9 years ago I had a Rouen-Y gastric by pass, I lost 250lbs. I gained back 50, I wanted to loose the extra weight and add a lap band. I underwent surgery 0n Thursday and nothing was done, due to the fact that the mesh that was placed at the connection of the esophagus to the new stomach once leaked and the mesh and fat has attached itself to the liver and the new stomach. We also found out that I have a hernia in the esophagus, which is now located BEHIND the liver. I am at a loss where to turn.
I need help in finding a doctor to repair the mess. I am 63 and in good health now but what happens if in 10 years something goes terribly wrong and I won't be in the condition to go through another major surgery? If you know someone or someplace I could turn to I would appreciate your help.
