Re: medical injury
jopunk,just curious, did you request your medical records from the hospital where you had the surgery done?Do you have a copy of your op notes from that surgery?You never know, these documents could contain some rather interesting info on just what took place during your surgery.Believe me, if you were dropped, it would definitely state it in the notes.No dr could possibly cover that up.It does sound like you very well could have nerve damage just from the procedure alone.This is an inherent risk that comes along with any sort of surgery.Unfortunetly, most surgeons wont tell you this before the surgery.i am in the same boat but with extensive damage to my spinal cord.Somehow, my 'team' of surgeons managed to damage areas up there that were no where near the actual surgical field.Have you considered seeing a good pain management doc?I never had any real help with any of my horrid pain syndromes until I started seeing mine.now, i wouldn't trade him for the world.I hope you find relief soon.Good luck,marcia
