Has anyone attempted to take legal action against a doctor for unnecessary surgery? In my situation, I feel that a conservative approach was not taken, and a more extensive (and expensive) surgery was done. This has caused much anguish and pain - especially since it has failed to produce the results requiring even more surgery if I want to walk without pain. Of course, it's only after the failed surgery that I found all these forums and thorough explanations for various foot problems and approaches. If we could only turn back the clock!!
