AFTER DISCOVERING THE DOCTOR NEVER COMPLETED MY SURGERY I GOT MY MEDICAL RECORDS AND IT WAS NOTED IN THEM IT HAD NOT BEEN COMPLETED AND YET I WAS NEVER TOLD ABOUT IT! I HAD BEEN LIED TOO AND THERE WAS A MAJOR COVER UP BETWEEN MY SURGEON AND HIS ASSOCIATES AS WELL AS OTHER LOCAL DOCTORS. I NOW SUFFER IRREVERSIBLE DAMAGE TO MY SPINE.
I had surgery on my spine in 1992 and suffered terrible for over 19 years and continued to see doctors in my local area. Had many x-rays, CT scans and MRI's amounting to a lot of medical bills. Finally after switching primary care physicians after 19.5 year I was sent to a major University Spine Center where I found out my surgery had never been completed. After this I started getting copies of my medical records and the doctor had noted my surgery had never been completed but they never told me. Therefore, I was lied to by the doctors I trusted. When I went to see a lawyer I found out I had no legal recourse although they knowingly lied to me because the current "statue of limitations" would not allow a lawsuit. Therefore, if a doctor does a botched surgery or even kills someone and can lie about it and keep it covered for 2 years and 1 day you have no legal recourse. This law should be changed to make the "statue of limitations" to file suit 2 years from the discovery of the medical mal-practice.
