21 years. Be careful

I had a life changing experience with this dr.. I went walking into the hospital and came out not walking. On April of 2016 northwell found a tumor located in my spinal cord, which was making me have leg pain on my left leg and some back pain. This dr. Came to me and told me that I had no alternative but to remove the tumor or else I would be paralyzed one day. I felt that he rushed me into doing something which I should have waited and got other info or opinions on. To conclusion I am not able to walk anymore as soon as I got out of surgery and have paralyzed symptoms.all due to the surgery. When I asked the dr. Of 21 so called years experience if he knew this would happen which was never mentioned of worst case sceneries before operation, he said he didn't know.. I should have never been touched.. his saying is that based on my tumor I would have eventually been paralyzed or lost mobility. Maybe! These doctors aren't god or always right, or trustworthy. This Dr insignia spooked me into a fast decision which should have been more analyzed or even researched. You put your hands and trust into these surgeons, they should tell you everything that could happen or warn you and if they don't know, then they should not do something that's out of there hands and not accelerate ones condition
