Renee pursued a second opinion from Dr Michael Fiorillo about her botched surgical procedure. He said that her surgical complications caused a wound to split open in her back, becoming infected and requiring emergent surgery and three months of healing.

Seven months after the first incident, Dr Fiorillo was ready to help repair some of the damage from the original procedure, attempting to pad an area of bone to make Renee more comfortable. She credits him with saving her life.

Mob Wives star Renee Graziano joined The Doctors team onstage for an update on her case. She said she is not yet back to feeling 100% better. Renee is a mother of one, and Dr Andrew Ordon said he wouldn’t expect that she’d need a full body lift.

But the doctor recommended the procedure. Despite some instinctive fears on the day of the procedure, she went ahead with the process. She felt she knew the risks and had prepared for the process, but didn’t feel that her original doctor properly understood her instructions.

When she sat up after her surgery, her back split open and she lost more than six pints of blood. She knew something was wrong, but it was the next day before she got emergent medical attention.

After connecting with Dr Fiorillo, she said she is looking forward to being in good hands for her corrective surgery.
