Ajay Kriplani M.D.
Impression of him: pleasant but like most surgeons did not really communicate well.rnrnStaff was okay--Dr. Ajay Mutterjee was the most friendly and informative.rnrnCorrespondence is by e-mail. I described my problems with eating and drinking to him--he suggested an anti-emetic but that was all.rnrnI had complications but I am not sure if they were his fault or my deficient body---failed the leak test and had to be re-sutured. Operation was 8 hours instead of 3. Hospital stay was 11 days instead of four. rnrnRecovery is much slower than anticipated.
Latest Surgery Support Comments
I am soon to be 56 years old, a mother of three, mother-in-law to one, grandmother to five.
I have been overweight since having my two daughters within one 15 month period. I just never lost the weight. I went to 153 pounds and then lost down to 136 just before my son was born. Once he was born, the weight just kept going up. I am 253 pounds as of January 11,2007. I am seeking a Roux-en-Y gastric bypass.
My insurance will not cover any type of weight loss surgery whatsoever. Therefore, I am setting up my surgery in India at the Apollo Hospital in Delhi. This is the hospital featured on 60 Minutes in 2006 when they did a piece on medical tourism. Costs have just gotten out of hand in the United States!
I am using these forums to gather information, solicit support and to help me deal with all of the frightening details. I have always found that internet friends can be the best there are--sometimes much more supportive than family members.
My hobby is quilting. I work for the City of Henderson (15 minutes south of Las Vegas Strip). I am an office assistant so I spend most of my day sitting at the computer. This is not conducive to weight loss. My co-morbidites are asthma, arthritis, diabetes II, hypertension, high cholesterol, and sleep apnea.
Thank you for reading my story. Send me good wishes, quilting tips, and bypass surgery tips anytime you please! I will be grateful.
