If the doctor neglected to monitor a condition and then up until recently (a year or 2) was when I realized there was permanent nerve damage, do you still think that is still related to the original condition he began treating me for in 2004? See, I didn't realize that the issue was of permanent nature until the last few years. I was just wondering because of how dismissive he behaved after I stated there was a problem and the fact that his notes in my medical records contradict each other and what he told me all along. Thanks.
