To ALL the cowards that posted those cruel an insensitive comments about Mr. Kanye West and Mrs. Dr. Donda West... ( his mom, May she R.I.P.) It's so obvious who you idiots are...Regardless of what or whom caused her death.. she is gone forever and a family is devastated. You people dislike Kanye because He's black, he speaks his mind and he got billions. You people are so PATHETIC. MAY GOD BE WITH KANYE AND HIS FAMILY.

She seeked the advice of a Professional surgeon "prior" to the doctor that performed the surgery, so she knew full well what she was setting her self up for. I guess only the Lord knows why she went on ahead & did those 2 surgical procedures, without taking on the helpful advice of the first doctor she spoke to. Why she wanted to go home following the surgery rather than staying in RECOVERY the suggested 48 hours is beyond me as well (given her age). I guess some questions are meant never to be answered.
She went home waaaay to soon after the surgery. There was too many risks against her for her to go home after the surgery.

Very sad & scary. My heart goes out to Kanye West & the family. As far as a "Law Suit"...Kanye can join the list of folks that already sued this Doctor (Jan Adams). It is surprising that Kanye himself wouldn't take more time in finding a qualified surgeon with a good background history of patients to perform this surgery on his mother. I know it all boils down to his mother being grown & doing what she felt would make her happy, but as her child I would have (personally) advised my mom against the surgery insisting she didn't need to go under the knife, no matter if she could afford it or not. Her age alone put her at higher risk for complications, as well possible pre-existing medical conditions. I would have sat her down & (in tears--if it came to that) I would have tried my best to talk her out of it. You only get one mother in this life time.
