During what was supposed to be a twenty minute procedure to remove a plate and screws from my ankle, taking two hours without explanation. I awoke in extreme pain crying in agony and was eventually sedated again until when the operation was completed I was brought around in recovery again screaming and breaking down in tears traumatised with immense pain.
When being released a surgeon (not known to me who was neither of the surgeons who had performed the operation) addressed me with what can be best described as a de-brief although admitting me he was unsure of my exact medical records and history, when I questioned what had happened and why? The surgeon denied such events took place! Who can I approach as it seems ranks have closed and I feel this explains why a complete stranger was assigned to deal with my release.
