On October 2010, I sustained several injuries from a fall of ~35-40 (suicide attempt), of which my spine suffered the most. Of all my spinal injuries, the four compression fractures (L1-L3) were the most serious. I underwent spinal fusion. Due to staph infections, I had to get four MORE surgeries. The first four surgeries were done by the same doctor at the same hospital. The staph kept recurring. The last surgery was done by a medical team at another hospital. The two members of the new neurosurgical team told me (off the record) that they thought that there was an issue with placement of the fusion hardware and debridement that caused recurrence of infection. How do I get a medical specialist to confirm that the fault lied with the original surgeon?
