during a six hour lumbar spinal fusion surgery where he took a break to call and tell my husband that everything was going well. He or some other MD cut a nerve in my right leg. I was, by the way, his last surgery which started very late in the day. .Waking up to pain in only my left leg, I was just happy not to have pain on the right one. It took a while to realize that was not normal. I was not able to do PT for 16 months during which time my right leg got shorter than the left. I cannot stand up straight. My walk is very aged looking and I have to wear a brace that was molded for me if I want to walk for more than 5 minutes. I also need a cane. After the surgery he was unavailable on the phone. His PA's did the phone work. He did not visit me in the hospital until the next to last day of a 6 day hospitalization, before going to rehab. During our initial interview he told me that I would be walking in 3 months and back on the tennis courts in 6..He never admitted that anything was wrong during the 2 follow up visits spread out over many weeks. In the end he wrote me a letter saying he was sorry that he could not reach MY expectations and passed me off to another MD, He didn't reach his own expectations. I was totally trusting going in and never questioned him.
