I AM A VICTIM OF MEDICAL MALPRACTICE - GROSS MEDICAL NEGLIGENCE AND A VICTIM FOR PROFIT. In October of 2010, I went to two different medical facilities because of pain and swelling in my legs and feet. I started with Rheumatology. I was being seen by this Dr. for 7 months. Then I was sent to Neurology in June of 2011. While being treated by her, I had mention that I was getting slight headaches(which I thought was from stress). So she sent me to have a mri. On July 13, 2011 I met with this Neurosurgeon(only two times), who said that he saw a Chiari Malformation Type 1 that my be causing my headaches. I told him the headaches were not a problem, it was the pain and swelling in my legs and feet. As time went on, November 1, 2011 I had finally gotten a Mobile Wheelchair because I could still do what I had to but, it was very painful walking on my legs and feet. So again in November the headaches, started coming back. I called his office and the first thing he said was you have to come in for surgery. So I went in on November 16, 2011(did not know why at first)they ran all kinds of test on me. On November 20, 2011 the Neurosurgeon came to me(our second meeting) and said if you have this Decompression Surgery(for the Chiari)all the pain and swelling in my legs and feet will go away and you will be 85% better. NOW I AM NOT A DOCTOR SO I TRUSTED HIS OPINION: So being in pain for over a year now I agreed to the surgery. The surgery was on November 22, 2011. I spent 7 hours in surgery and no one ever told me what happen. On November the 23, 2011 The neurosurgeon came to see me, and asked how I felt. I told him, I feel a lot of pressure in my head. He Got Up and Left the Room. I did not see him again until November 30, 2011 because they forgot to give me Meds when I was discharged on November 23, 2011. Two other Doctors came to see me, then asked if I would go get a second opinion, because they wanted to make sure things went well. On December 23, 2011 My son and I went to see my family Doctor because a knot had grew on the back of my incision on my head, He looked at it, and the first thing he said, was look like someone didn't know what they were doing. December 31, 2011 I started getting dizzy spells. Went to the hospital, they said they could not find anything. So they sent me home. While at home I was on my way, to go up stairs and had 1 of 4 blackouts. In March of 2010 the Rubral Tremors started(that is when your cerebellum has been damaged)light at first. I went back to the neurosurgeon and asked what did he do to me, BECAUSE I NEVER HAD A TREMOR IN MY LIFE. He said I don't know, but I will try to find out. I declined and went on a search find out what happen. Two Years later after being in so much agony and pain, I had no other choice but to go through Deep Brain Stimulator Surgery. Which The battery died in 8 months requiring additional surgery and on going medical issues. Now it does not work at all. But through all of this THE PAIN AND SWELLING IN MY LEGS AND FEET WAS NEVER HELPED. NO ONE WAS EVER BROUGHT TO JUSTICE: GUESS I HAD TO DIE PHYSICALLY FIRST. THEY ALREADY KILLED MY ENJOYMENT IN LIFE.
The reason I would like to see Change is because I did not received my Medical Records until May of 2013, When I did it was all kinds of lies to try to cover up what they had done to me. On my Discharge Summary it has clear a day they had No Clear Cut Diagnosis of what was causing my problem. And on another document, it had that the surgery was High Risks and Unnecessary. Bit I was never told. irst requested my Records in January of 2013. When I finally received them was in May of 2013. I had hired a attorney which he had no Medical records. Sat and done nothing for 6 months. Which Still did not leave much time. And then to keep hearing you don't have enough Merits ,or it would not be worth the outcome or like the attorney I had first Hired I had to let him go because of lack of communication. When I did finally thought I had found someone else that I thought read my medical records, They never did. Then dismissed my Law Suit on the claim they had nothing to go on, When I sent proof and documents to prove I was right, they ignored it and dismissed it without my permission. And it was too late to get help. I was told by a attorney that they need at least 8 months to do a medical malpractice suit. The only problem was out of all the 30 + attorneys I spoke not 1 every believed or had faith that I was telling the truth. They just be looking at dollar signs, What About The Victim . Why I or another Victim can not get timely Justice because attorneys do things like that.
I WOULD LIKE TO SEE THIS CHANGE TO MAKE SURE ALL VICTIMS GET A FAIR CHANCE A JUSTICE AND FOR DOCTORS AND HOSPITALS BE HELD MORE ACCOUNTABLE FOR LEAVING SOMEONE DISABLED FOR LIFE OR EVEN MURDERED.
PLEASE SIGN SO WE CAN CHANGE THIS.LAW A LOT MORE CASES ARE MORE COMPLICATED THEN MINE WAS AND MAY NEED THE EXTRA TIME:
