in New York, NY |
How I wish I would have insisted on another surgeon to do my appendectomy laparoscopically instead of having the open surgery with Menken which left me with a huge, unsightly hernia that will need further to fix - if it can be fixed which is not clear. Also, Menken's lack of dexterity caused my appendix to break off. This meant my wound couldn't be closed and the pain was horrible. Becauseof this surgery I developed massive adhesions which required further surgery. STAT AWAY!
I have never performed a laparoscopic appendectomy and have not done an open appendectomy in years since patients only want laparoscopic surgery. I have no idea who this or why she would lie about me
