      He installed a catheter in my arm, for dialysis. I pointed out that, according to the vein mapping, veins near my wrist were smaller those veins near my elbow. So I asked that he catheter be placed near my elbow. He said only, if I obtained permission from my Nephrologist. My Nephrologist granted permission, but Dr. Walsh did not comply. When I woke up from surgery; the catheter was at my wrist. The catheter won't mature, after 12 weeks; and surgery must be repeated (with elbow area placement).
