Hi Freedom For All,
I come with no advice, just my very best wishes.
That and my utmost admiration for your courage in the face of such horror.
I have no idea how I'd have coped and only hope to never be tested.
My regards also to your wife and family.
Steve.

What a nightmare. It was bad enough getting the diagnosis but to be treated like that in Hospital was terrible and unforgivable. I think you made the right call checking yourself out because any future options would have to be better than that instant and extremely radical surgery ........ without proper consultation.
Again, the best of luck here on.

Wow, "....removing your backbone...." really? What would support you? Performing any such radical surgery without prior consultation would be at best unethical and possibly illegal. It would be a bit like writing a blank cheque and hoping that the recipient would put in a reasonable amount. You did the best thing as they would probably have required you to sign all sorts of waivers so if you ended up paralysed there would be no comeback on them. The surgeon's bedside manner leaves a lot to be desired. I hope you get a second opinion and a successful outcome at this stressful time. To be treated so abysmally is the last thing you need at this time.
I believe in offering every assistance short of actual help but then mainly just want to be left to be myself in all my difference and uniqueness.

My lord man what the hell is going on??? Is your Dr's name Frankenstein?? Having An operation without at least two Dr's opinions is not the thing to do. I don't know what your hospitals are like but in my area no major surgery will be performed unless two doctors agree and you are present at the consultation.
Sending in armed guards to your room tells me you were not going to survive the operation, either in death or being made a vegetable for the rest of your life.
If I were you I would check out at least two more doctors and get a lawyer to sue the other doctor and the hospital.
Good luck with what ever you do.
Again praying for you and your family.

As a cancer survivor of: Incapsulated Mucosal Epithelial Cancer in my sinus cavities, removal of a 7 inch X 3 inch X .7 inch piece of colon cancer, a 1 inch by 1 inch Squamous Epithelial Cell lump on my forearm surgically removed years ago and ongoing freezings of Actinic Keratosis on my scalp ( I'm bald) my ears and my cheek bones--> I'm still enjoying life and moving ahead at age 74.

If you was a prisoner I'd say you were escaping one piece at a time.

Seriously, you truly are a survivor. I wish you continued health and you live to be 100.

Despite Fred's "say it like it is" style, I've got to say the man "speaks my mind" on this one. Along with a couple of professional opinions; and copies of all the records from that institution in duplicate to feed to two or more lawyers in your (US) world of litigate everything -- this appears to be one of those times you should. There is likely some 'pro-bono' talent seeking your case. I suspect it is a distraction you do not need now, but maybe it will take your mind off other worries a bit?

Yes, get some more opinions and info; glad you had the wisdom and strength to stand up to such abuse of authority even while subdued. For what it is worth, you can bet this would not happen in our little bit of paradise we talked about as one of the hallmarks of medicine here is communication and care foremost.

...She left and a few minutes later my door flew open. It was two big security guards who stood over my bed with their hands on their guns. The first one asked if there was a problem. I told him there was not. He tried telling me that I could not record on private property. I was afraid they were about to drag me out of bed or shoot me...
Terrible!!!
You was in the hospital or in prison (maybe Gulag)??? :cry:

I wish You better pri... - sorry - hospital.
And health and freedom for all - including for You.

That's horrendous treatment! I hope you find somewhere decent to treat you, maybe you can now use the recordings to take some sort of action or even just to show how badly that hospital treated you, although I wouldn't think about that until the medical issues are treated!

I wish you the best!
