I had my gallbladder out in March, it was huge. Now I have pain constantly like someone is shoving a telephone pole up my penis. I feel like I have a massive kidney infection, have already been on antibiotics, blood tested, urine tested, and nothing. I wish they had left the gallbladder in, I felt better then than I do now. I have crippling abdominal pain, and reflux that feels like someone sprayed lighter fluid and then lit it, several times a day! I still am bruised; this was done with the laparoscopy.

Please do not do these chemical peels. I was informed by a scientist researcher who did product development that 98 percent of the people who do this develop skin cancer. A doctor gave me a peel without my consent when under anesthesia. I was furious when I woke and it burned terribly. He refused to remove it. I didn't need it either. It plumps up your face for about a year or so, but is horrible and painful. Now I have the dreaded skin cancer all over my face and expect it to be fatal. Please people do not let this happen to you.

I have fines lines and ice picked scars from my acne but I do not have pigmentation. Now I suffered severe 'burned patches' of island patches and spots on my cheeks since having done the chemical peel. I did ask the aesthetician about the appearance of extreme darkened patches the day after the peel. He assured me it is fine though I have a deep suspicion of the uneven patches. My face looks badly pigmented now. This is certainly a very bad job done on my face by an aesthetician with many years of experience. I seem to have permanent scarring now. I am extremely disappointed.
