To Orlando Christina: you seem to know intimate details about this case. You would also know that Dr. Karlin approved the use of my "ridiculous herbal remedy" and I have a witness to that effect. I also stopped using it when the bruising got worse. And if you want to talk about "ridiculous herbal remedies", lets talk about the homeopathic arnica that Dr. Karlin gave me for use before the surgery. If you know anything about homeopathy you know that it's a bunch of disproven, harmful bunk. These little sugar pills have nothing in them! Homeopathic "remedies" are diluted to the point that not even a single molecule of the original substance exists in them. I still have that bottle sitting right here on my desk.
Second: the necrosis was more likely caused by too much pressure from the serous fluid buildup in the pocket. When I complained about the pressure, instead of actually addressing the issue, the man had the gall to tell me to "take a Valium and relax". After the implants were removed, over 300 ccs of serous fluid buildup was found in EACH POCKET. At a subsequent checkup one of his nurses at the time even pointed out a big bubble in my skin. I call that negligence.
Third, since you have knowledge of my case then you have knowledge of the legal agreement as well. Since you are one of Dr. Karlin's "agents", I will consider this a breech of said contract. Dr. Karlin's name is, therefor fair game and will be disclosed accordingly. Have a nice day.
AND when I asked why this was happening, he actually said "I don't know. I've never seen anything like this". Am I supposed to believe that a surgeon of (at the time) 15 years of experience had never seen necrosis? Not even in medical school?? Give me a frickin break.
