Patient Beware

I am writing this because there is so little information about doctors out there. A routine robotic prostatectomy, resulted in a 9 day hospital stay with urine leaking into my abdomen. A year later, a blood test revealed a high level of creatin. It was discovered that in the operation the doctor had sewn my ureter to the bladder which caused a total blockage. The blockage resulted in my kidney being compromised and barely functioning. Reimplanting the ureter would not improve the loss of kidney function. I elected to have my kidney removed and my health has vastly improved. No chance of a blockage was ever discussed by the doctor. His bedside manner and compassion is one of the worst I have ever experienced. Lesson learned, always seek out a second or third opinion.
