    I was suppose to have a Triple Arthrodisis on 7/29/13 , but when I came out of Surgery to my room, I was told By Dr. Sauer that he did a double Arthrodisis and I felt a bad chill down my back.. I went through therapy and 6 weeks later when he put a walking boot on my foot, he said to walk with the crutches and light pressure on my foot and one week last the screws and plates were broken... March of 2014 the Fusion broke and he didn't do nothing but push me away,3yr later I need a Ankle replace.
