Don't give up, as I don't intend to. I have private health that costs me $170.00 a month and it hasn't made an ounce of difference when it comes to professionalism. As with most people in life, when you fix something and it doesn't stay fixed, you endeavour to find out why and then try and fix it again. When you are being paid thousands of dollars to do exactly the same thing for someone else then you should be committed enough and indeed governed to do exactly that. Doctors should acknowledge that things can go wrong post op other than the temporary stock standard stuff... ie slipped, disrupted, failed wrap. Tight crual repair, wrap too long, too tight, wrap migration and reherniation. At the end of the day, if there is a potential that an error has ocurred, investigate it properly and if it is conclusive, own it and fix it.
It's the ignoring of a persons symptoms that it is infuriating and that lack of interest and compassion that is soul destroying on top of every lousy physical symptom that you are already trying your level best to contend with.
Hang in there Baza
