    Unhappy ms hollywood

    I had a doctor who was going to do a gastric bypass revision, until he found out I would not agree to take blood even though I would use other methods, ie. cell saver. Does anyone know a doctor who will do it in either Georgia, Kentucky, Alabama, Indiana, North Carolina or were I live, Nashville TN. I'm desperate for health reasons. Thank you !!!!!!

    I could refer you to our Bariatric Surgery Dept here in Chicago, Illinois. However there is probably something closer. Jan
