Patient discussion about procedure

Q. What are the dangers of a liposuction procedure? I am nervous about my decision to do liposuction and wanted to know more about the risks in this procedure.

A. Liposuction complications may include: infection, extended healing time, allergic reaction to medication or anesthesia, fat or blood clots - clots can migrate to the lungs and lead to death, excessive fluid loss - fluid loss can lead to shock, fluid accumulation - fluid must be drained, friction burns, damage to the skin or nerves, damage to vital organs. The dangers of excessive liposuction include risks associated with removing too much fat from targeted areas at once, as well as having too much liposuction performed in a single day. Excessive liposuction can cause problems including dents, lumps, and sagging

Q. Has anyone had a bad experience with Lasik? I am considering the procedure but am worried about the risks.

A. i know several ophthalmologist- and they all ware glasses...it's like a giant experiment on people- no one really knows what will be the long reach out come of it. but then again, cellular radiation is also a world wide experiment..so i stay with my glasses for now, but that's because i'm not a big risk taker.

Q. I developed an AV Fistula after a heart catherization procedure. I am bleeding through the tissues in left arm I am on coumadin, but currently have a lower than usual INR. Corrective surgery was scheduled for yesterday, but had to be delayed. I am concerned that I have a large amount of blood (dark red) bleeding though the tissues right under the skin in my left arm. Should I seek immediate medical attention? The bleeding is over approximately a 3 and 1/2" area on my left arm. Came about in a period of a few minutes.

A. well, you are on blood thinners. i wouldn't take the chance. i mean- i'm not sure i follow what is happening over there. it could be a severe problem or nothing. i would let a doctor check it out. the worse thing that could happen is you wasting a day at the hospital, on the other end of that scenario- you can end up dead. i would go with the first one.
