He never liked my asking him questions, to shut me up he kept saying just trust me, it's this simple, you have a bunion, after surgery you won't have one any more.
I had a moderate condition, but during I was put to sleep fully against my wishes to remain awake.
I asked for crutches they did not give my any, I was able to walk out right after sugery when my foot was still numb without pain, they said pain would come in an hour os so.
But I was unable to walk for 3 whole days, the 4th day I was barely able to walk I was going in for the crutches I was told if I needeed would be with the cost of the surgery, but then they were so nasty about it I was on my way there and changed my mind, since they weren't garaunteeing me any were there anyway.
My ankle was swollen and double the normal size, and bruise.
I have xrays but can't tell if any thing is wrong.
I specifically asked my doctor if he was going to cut any ligaments or tendons and he told me "NO".
But 4 weeks later I said I can't lift my great toe at all, did you cut a ligament? He said "Yes"
My sister had the same operation, she was very surprized as her experience was totally unlike mine (GOOD), and she said, "Hes a quack". Though our conditions were the same.
He also put screws in my foot when I previously told him I didn't want any screws.
He operated on me when I came in and had a temperature of 100 degrees, and he did not tell me I was very anemic of HBT at 9.4. Which he knew since he did blood work twice before the surgery.
Please repond with your opinion, thanks Valerie
