When I questioned my surgeon why I could not walk dr. hrynkiw came into my hospital room and threw my covers off my bed into the floor, told me to lift my leg, which I did. He slapped my leg down and said I told you to push your foot against my hand. He then turned and walked out. I did not even know who he was until I called the PCT to get my covers out of the floor. My back was broken in four places from an MVA two days earlier. I later found out I had spinal swelling

Dr. Hrynikiw was not my original surgeon, although I sure wish he had been! He accepted me after my first surgeon had gotten me very close to death. I had a bad spinal fluid leak, which the first surgeon couldn't stop. Upon consultation, and my daughter begging for help, I was very much out of it, he told us that I would die if the leak wasn't stopped, and the dead tissue taken out. He also said it would probably take multiple surgeries to save my life. He did twice. I'm here due to his skill...
