article in the Sheffield Telegraph
"Marilyn Wardrop, aged 54, was warned the gastric bypass operation carried a small risk of death but she was determined to go ahead with it, say her Doncaster family, because she was fed up of weighing 24 stone. Now they are considering whether they should take legal action against the private Thornbury Hospital in Ranmoor, Sheffield, where the operation was carried out last September on the NHS.
The surgeon who carried out the procedure on Mrs Wardrop, of Queens Court, Thorne, Doncaster, denies any malpractice.
The operation to reduce the capacity of her stomach was carried out on September 17 and she was allowed home two days later by the consultant Roger Ackroyd, although she complained of being in pain, a Doncaster inquest heard.
On September 21 the pain became so bad her family called 999 but she went into shock and died in the ambulance before it reached Doncaster Royal Infirmary.
A post-mortem examination carried out by Dr Mahariz Muzzafar discovered two litres of blood in her abdominal cavity and that was the cause of death but it was not possible to discover the site of the bleed."
