Not caring at all, I was left in a lot of pain after surgery, in 2015, recently found out that the pain that I have been experiencing,Is coming from chronic fracture ribs, of which I got a copy of a CT SCAN to find this out, this happened during my surgery. She did not tell me. I am in constant pain after this surgery. I went to rehab, but for only two weeks, and needed more rehab, but in order for my ins to pay for it, I had to get recertified, she refused to fill out the paperwork,said no!
