Do not take my post op issues serious enough. I have never had brain surgery before so, I would not really have knowledge about my condition. Questions were never answered clear enough And when I did complain about issues his go to answer would be well come on in on Wednesday and see me. My issue started on a Friday you wanted me to wait until next week! What makes it worse is that I would like to change surgeons but, no other doctor will touch you!
