I was rushed to Mobile Infirmary due to fall injurying my ankles. Dr. Ben Freeman was the Orthopetic Surgeon. He only X-rayed one of my legs when arriving at the hospital and operated on it to correct the breakage. He told me that nothing was wrong with the other ankle. By a blessing from God, about a week after my operation and one of the nurses at the hospital ordered a X-ray for the ankle that Dr. Freeman said nothing was wrong and she ordered for a Internal Medicine doctor to check for infection in ankle that Dr. Freeman had operated on due to a odor in the room. It was so odd that Dr. Freeman had been coming to my room everyday and had not detected anything. Also I had a low grade fever which should have sparked some sort of interest about infection. It was later determined that I had infection in the leg that was operated on and the other ankle was fractured. I was released from the hospital after staying in the hospital for 2 weeks. Dr Freeman/hospital released me without a post-office visit setup to see Dr. Freeman. He or his staff did not try to contact me to setup an appointment to do a follow-up on my ankles. I had staples and stitches in my ankle for over a month until I was due to see the Internal Medicine Doctor. He suggested that I contact Dr. Freeman to remove the stitches and staples that day in Mobile while we were down. He said that they needed to be taken out. I called Dr. Freeman's office. His nurse did not even try to work me in. I had to schedule an appt for a later date. Again thru God's forces, the Cancer Surgeon that I had to see later that day, removed the staples and stitches for me. I would like everyone to know about my experiences with Dr. Freeman
