I sure wish I had read all this before I let this " butcher" ( a lot of people call him this) operate on me!!! He operated on my back in 2010. He put a rod & screws in my spine. I only hurt a little before he operated on me. I was dumfounded by what he said I needed & he scared me. I can't get out of bed & do things like I used to. I have to use a scooter. I can't stand for 1 minute without me hitting the ground!! I kept telling how severe the pain was & that my right foot was totally numb! He just said it would get better. It never has. I fall down all the
