I saw Dr. James Anderson as a federal for a hernia I have. He refused to do the surgery because he said I was fat and would die. He also said 60% don't take. He wanted me to get a stomach balloon and lose weight fast, then have bariatric surgery and when he felt my weight was right than he would operate.
