Mother was operated on by Berry. Week later,Berry performed emergency surgery for which he gave two different explainations. A week later, she was in intensive care for six months. Ultimately she recovered somewhat, but was bedridden for the rest of her life. She was fed by stomach peg for two years after the surgeries. Berry joked with my father when trying to explain what happened. Nursing home for the three years, Mother lived in after Berry'surgeries cost in excess of $200,000.
