This is miss details & is longer than this: I had surgery over a yr ago 4 bad pain 4lumbar disc had a piece broke off & was herniated. The Dr. said he cleaned it up & it would be better. I didn't get better. The pain didn't go away. I told him the pain was bad. I said it was still on the left, but radiated to the right. He ignored me (after my MRI). Went for a 2nd opinion, they said it needed fused/fixed. My prev dr said that there was nothing wrong w/ it & it looked good. I asked him 2 take 2nd look 2 be sure. I told him it was on the left & radiated 2 right. He's no longer practicing. I have been worse, he sd nothing wrong, last MRI looked good. I have another dr who did an MRI it is much worse than in Jan. 1st surg was Apr 2013, 2nd was Apr 14, MRI after that, yet worse than in Jan!This is much, much longer than what I wrote. I am missing a ton of important details. There is not much room to write them. Lets just say, that I shouldn't have to be getting another back surgery so soon. Dr #1 didn't do anything for me. He knew that I was in pain, he knew that the herniation was bad among other things, yet he lied to me. He said the MRI looked good. It didn't look good. How could it be worse now than in January and i just had a back surgery in April! I shouldn't be having this much pain. The pain goes off the scale! I cry a ton because of the pain. I was limited in what I could do before, but it is so much worse now. My activities are much more limited. I lay in bed much much more than I did before. The more the days go by with this awful pain, the more angry I become about the whole situation.
Your post is a little difficult to follow. In any event, your best bet is to consult with an experienced OH medical malpractice attorney who can gather and analyze all of the relevant information and advise you if there is anything worth pursuing.
In seeking an attorney on this site, beware of limiting your search to attorneys with a 10 rating, and carefully read the AVVO disclaimer regarding their rating system. There are certain factors that are given great weight which do not necessarily have any bearing on an attorney's experience, abilities, and results with certain types of cases. Accordingly, the rating numbers can be misleading. Also beware of basing your choice on the fee charged, as a low fee, depending on the skill, experience and determination of the specific attorney handling your case, could actually have an inverse relationship to the amount actually put in your pocket.
Go to the Ohio Trial Lawyers website and find an attorney that handles malpractice. Most give free consultations.
