I had my meniscus removed and an ACL reconstruction on 08-28-2012. I went to every single physical therapy. I followed all the doctors instructions. But apparently on my last visit (11-20-12) he said that it seems that my knee was a little loose. I had new MRI and X-rays taken and he called me today (12-2-12) saying that I tore my ACL again and that i need a new surgery. He said that i have to pay for it because it has been more that 3 months. I do not want to pay for a new surgery because I feel like he should be liable for the surgery. After surgery he never checked my knee because he said the tissue was still healing. He checked my knee this last time because I asked him to. I don't know what to do because i already spent a lot of money in this surgery. Can i sue him for this?
