For the past six months, I have had a total of 7 surgeries on my hand and the last 2 should not have happened. I had a tendon repaired after an accident and yet my middle fingers were not staying up. I asked my surgeon several times if the tendon was still attached and he danced around like a ***** on a pole. I had to get an MRI to verify that it was attached and that I didn't need a transplant. What he didn't tell me was that the tendon was stretched and that during surgery #5, he folded it and sutured it, but didn't talk to me after the surgery with instructions on what he did. If I had known what he did, I would have never moved my figures which broke the sutures and demanded another surgery. In my last surgery, he transplanted a tendon from my wrist and put me in a splint for 4 weeks. I guess they got enough money out of Blue Cross on this one.
The obvious lack of communication from the doctor put me under the knife when it should have been fixed 2 surgeries ago. I am not bashful about asking questions and feel that this could be intentional knowing very well that I would break the sutures because I didn't know what they did in the surgery. From day one they talked about doing a transplant, but wouldn't tell me why. This has been going on for 6 months and the lack of service has been obvious.
This is no different then an auto mechanic loosing some bolts on a car during service in order to get it back in for more service.
Unfortunately, there is no way to prove negligence simply because they wouldn't answer my questions. Of course having the doctor leave immediately after surgery without any specific instructions may warrant this.
