Don't really wan't to discourage you but for a dr to miss what he went in there for???? I would definitely think twice about going back. I know it's a pain to travel to a dr but I actually travel 3 hours one way to my urologist and believe me, he is more than worth every mile we drive. My last urologist literally almost killed me; and last summer this new one had to fix his mistakes as well as perform about 10 procedures over a 2 month period. Needless to say we traveled a lot last summer and it was extremely painful each time we got into the car but I knew this man was finally going to help me and helped to save me life so no amount of distance mattered. Plus, when you go to other drs, you might find one who treats you the way you should be treated; I never was able to talk with my drs in my hometown, always had to talk with the nurse or leave a message & hope someone would call me back the next day. When I found these new drs, they either have talked to me right away when I call, call me back within 30 min, or my urologist has given me his cell number and says to just call him and don't call anyone else when I have ?'s. It's so comforting to be treated by skilled, compassionate drs.
So, I know you trust your family dr., but are you going to give someone a second chance who put you under once & placed a stent in you causing severe pain for NO reason due to HIS error? One time missing something is too many especially if it's happening to YOU.
I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers and hope that your pain eases soon.
