Wheeling Wv |
Lied to me about my surgery said I'd have a 90% good outcome and he'd go right of my original incision, went on top my original ripped my spinal fluid sac then at follow up said I'd only have a 50/50 chance of the surgery helping and wouldn't answer me why he went over my original incision instead of right of it like he said he would do, been 4 years still have horrible pain and bad migraines now
