Strax / Bad surgery almost killed me

Ft Lauderdale, United States Review updated:

On March 3rd 2009 I went to strax to have a breast augmentation and tummy tuck, my surgery was done by Dr. Gordon. After surgery I attended all of my post opp visits, and was told to come back in 10 Years to get my breasts check out. Years later - I started having really bad stomach aches but never though off my tummy tuck but my sister always said so. In July 2014 I noticed a bump/pimple that won't heal, it would puss and bleed all day everyday. About two weeks later a green wire type object pushed it way out though the pimple, I went to the doctor that very next morning. I saw two doctors that day who told me that I have a very bad infection, I needed antibiotics urgently and I need to see a surgeon ASAP. I went to a surgeon who told me he was surprise I was still standing how bad my infection is, I was prep for emergency surgery right away. I saw pictures of flesh that had to be cut out with some type of wiring in it. I am pissed that they can do that, I almost dead! They will not get away with this. I was told that suing is not an option by a United States attorney - what a load of crap. Please I beg you if you are reading this and thinking about going to Strax please, please DON'T save yourself a lot of pain, money and time

    Since it was an elective surgery, you more than likely can not sue him because you would have signed a waiver prior.

    Best of luck
