Run away don't walk away!!!

This dr operated on my husbands neck 6 times in 5 weeks. Infection was spread during surgery into the wound. A suction wound vac was used that pulled out spinal fluid for a total of 21 days before he or any other hospital dr realized it. He is now handicapped and has lost his business that he loved. There was no aftercare and because he makes his peers and nurses fear him everyone pretty much left the care up to him. This is something we will always regret. Our lives are changed forever.
