In early Sept. 2016 at Central Maine Medical Center Dr. Withers removed my gall bladder after several days of waiting, as my bile and pancreas were "fun 'n games". Dr. Withers, as I later learned, took a lot of time explaining things to my wife, Anne. A week or two later I did have to return to CMMC due to some spot bleeding, but there was absolutely nothing on which to remotely blame Dr. Withers. On the contrary several people attending to me PRAISED the way she had "sewn me up"!!! I later learned, Dr. Withers has written a book on this. Just prior to surgery I still feel bad, if I seemed rude in any way, because I could barely talk. Anne had helped Rhonda in T-Wing lift me out of bed, etc. {I would later write a complaint letter about Rhonda, the only nurse with whom I had an issue. It was evident, she resented Anne's help.} I am one who can take pain, but after a jostle that almost made Anne lose control, I was in agony. She has an office near the Sea Dogs & MMC, true ?
