Lap-Band Questions You Shouldn't Be Afraid to Ask a Surgeon

Sometimes, medical staffers act like doctors have angels on their wings or something or that they're better than the rest of us, common folks. Some doctors don't think they have the time to answer questions either. It's not like, us simpletons, would even understand the answers, right?

Before I set a few people straight (because that's how I have to do things), I had that problem at a bariatric clinic that did not get my insurance company's money in the end. This is how it went. I went into this place, loaded down with questions, because invasive procedure or not, it's my body you know, and I wanted to know how this surgery would change my life.

A decent surgeon, one who cares about more than his summer home and his three cars, will encourage questions. A bad surgeon, one who doesn't need a license, will discourage them and even try and push you off on someone else with your questions. Don't let a person like this do your surgery.

You should not be afraid to ask your surgeon questions – note “questions” instead of “question”. Every question you don't ask could be one less minute you have to live. You have the right to your questions.

Below are a list of questions (this is by no means all) that you should ask your doctor) and the reasons why they do need to be asked. Get your answers. If people like you didn't utilize your doctor's surgery, he wouldn't have a summer home, and he would have to go to work on public transportation.

Question #1 – I know your name. You're doing my surgery, aren't you? I don't like change. You won't like it either in the OR. If Dr. McCoy said he was going to do your surgery, then Dr. McCoy should do it. I don't want to wake up and see Dr. Klingon, using me as his first patient, straight out of internship. I will sue, sue, sue, and get me some Oprah money.

Question #2 – Can I talk to you before and after the surgery? I don't want answers from your nurse or your receptionist. Which medical school did they not attend? I am really going to set it off now. My insurance company paid you. I know they did because you billed them even before I woke up in recovery.

Question #3 – Speaking of medical school, where did you receive your training? How many Lap-Band surgeries have you done? I watch a lot of Tru-tv (too much my husband says), but one day, there was a doctor on there treating people who wasn't even a doctor.

Did you see Leonardo Di Caprio (when he was still cute) in “Catch Me if You Can?” He pretended to be a doctor too. You have to know. Don't be shy, check with the state and national boards for verification. It's better to be cautious than dead, and that is not a joke. If your doctor has a problem with you checking up on him, then tell him to “stick it” where only a proctologist can removed it and report him to the ethics commission.

Question #4 – Do you mind if I speak to some of your success stories? If he doesn't have any, it's okay. Maybe, it's not his fault. Maybe these people were not prepared for the surgery or maybe they were. Either way, you can always go to bariatric support meetings and get feedback from his other patients.

You can also check his reviews online. But let me seriously tell you this – if somebody walks in Dr. McCoy's office with a shotgun, calling out his name, then I would not go back. It's nothing personal against Dr. McCoy, but his office doesn't seem like a safe place to be.

All jokes put aside; you can't get anymore serious than someone putting you to sleep and cutting on you. Don't be afraid to ask your Lap-Band questions.
