My boyfriend, who is incarcerated, broke his finger very badly and had to be taken to go see a doctor. The doctor operated on his finger and put a plate in it. After 3 weeks they took the cast off and he saw : 1) that the finger healed crooked and twisted to the side , 2) the finger could no longer bend, and 3) they left an unusually large surgical scar on his finger.
He questioned the doctor on why his finger was messed and the doctor told him that there was nothing else he could do about it, therefore he went to see another doctor. This new doctor did reconstructive surgery on his finger, he operated and took the plate that the first doctor put in. A few days after the surgery , his bandages fell off and he saw that the doctor left the incision wide open and did not stitch it back up.
