“Last year, my father underwent Balloon surgery in order to lose weight. It worked well then. He underwent the same surgery for the second time in January this year. A different doctor performed the surgery on him this time. Something went wrong and he started feeling uneasiness. When he was admitted in the hospital, doctors informed us that the surgery failed. After so many subsequent surgeries and two months of medication, his condition got stable and was discharged at the end of March.
