READ THIS BEFORE YOU LET HIM PERFORM SURGERY

I BROKE MY HIP FROM A FALL, WENT TO SUMMITT ER, HOSP STAFF RUDE IN ER, ADMITTED AND THEY COULDN'T GET DR THAT NIGHT, NEXT DAY MET DR LADEUCER, VERY BAD BED SIDE MANNER, RUDE, WANTS ANSWER AS SOON AS HE DESCRIBES PROBLEM. WAS NERVOUS, KNEW HAD TO HAVE SURGERY BUT DIDN'T GIVE ME TIME TO DECIDE ON OPTIONS, VERY FRUSTRATED IT SEEMED. AFTER SURGERY KEPT TELLING DR ONE LEG SHORTER TO NO AVAIL, WAS TOLD IN MY HEAD, IN MY KNEE(EVEN GIVEN SHOT IN KNEE OF CORTISONE), TRIED TO TELL HIM NOT KNEE BUT REFUSED TO LISTEN, EVEN PT SENT NOTE ADVISING SOMETHIING WRONG. NEEDLESS TO SAY AFTER 4 MONTHS OF COMPLAINING NOT GETTING BETTER, GETTING WORSE, I HAD TO WEAR A SHOE ON BAD LEG AND BAREFOOT ON GOOD LEG TO PROVED LEG WAS SHORTER. COME TO FIND OUT DIDNT HAVE XRAYS DURING SURGERY, HAD LOST THEM OR NEVER HAD THEM,AND ONCE FOUND REVEALED THAT HE HAD BROKEN FEMUR DURING SURGERY, ALSO HAD PELVIC FRACTURE FROM FALL (NEVER FOUND)AM NOW TOTALLY DISABLED IN CONSTANT PAIN, HAVE TO WEAR SHOE LIFT AND HAVE SPECIAL SHOES MADE. PAIN GETS INTOLERABLE AND HAVE TO USE CANE AT TIMES. I AM NOW FACED WITH ANOTHER HIP REPLACEMENT DUE TO HIS NEGLEGENCE. HE OFFERED NO TYPE OF SUPPORT FOR HIS NEGLIGENCE ONLY SAYING FIRST TIME IT HAD EVER HAPPENED TO HIM, SO PLEASE, PLEASE BE CAREFUL AND HAVE SECOND OPINION, I WOULD HATE FOR ANYONE TO HAVE TO SUFFER THE WAY I DO ON A DAILY BASIS. GOOD LUCK, AND DR LADEUCER, YOU COULD HAVE AT LEAST OFFERED TO FIX YOUR MISTAKE, YOU DIDN'T EVEN TAKE TIME TO SEE WHAT YOU COULD DO TO HELP ME, NOT EVEN GIVING MEDICATION FOR PAIN, HAD TO GO TO MY OWN PRIVATE DR. I HOPE AND PRAY YOU HAVEN'T RUINED ANYONE ELSES LIFE LIKE YOU DID MINE. GOD BLESS TO ALL, ILL BE PRAYING FOR ALL OF HIS PATIENTS BECAUSE I WOULD NEVER LET THAT MAN TOUCH ME AGAIN.
