Basically 2 women call in to this radio station saying the went together to Mexico to have lapband surgery and one of them came back without one of their kidneys. She claims she did not know anything about it until she got an MRI and the tech scolded her for not mentioning she only had one kidney. She was having the MRI because of continued pain from her surgery. She claims she contacted the hospital in MX and the program named above and that all of them claim to never have heard of her and that she was never a patient there.
I am curious how this "victim" did not notice the large scar she would have had if her kidney had actually been removed. Not to mention that her family, friends, ER staff, MRI staff etc must have also overlooked the large scar. This kind of story has been around forever about folks waking up in various places without their kidney.
It is scary to me that the radio station and all the readers of posts like these not only believe this stuff without question but pass it on to others as "fact" and in need of warnings.
I actually emailed Belitemexico and advised them this is being posted on OH with a warning to others.
Keep in mind that while I did have my surgery in Mexico I am not connected with belitemexico at all.
Whatever you do is it truthful, necessary and kind?
