MY heart goes out to Ms.Ned over her surgeries and lose of her leg .... i can understand her problem to well ... my husband had surgery there in July of 1999 and this were horrible from day one.... we never even knew who did the surgery ... never saw a dr to explain what they actual did in surgery ... My daughter happen to look up and see her dad being taking to ICU ... no one ever came to talk .... Fast forward and he has major problems and we find that what Parkland nurses tell us was done was not the surgery he had ....i dont know how they get away with this ....He had to go through surgery which didnt go well and had to have a 3rd one in 6 days ... I willl never go back to Parkland ... no matter ... We saw alot of so called DOCTORS the nite before his surgery but none after and i find out later they were only students .... never would have agreed to the surgery if we had know we wont have contact with a Dr to tell us what was done ....Sad they get away with it ... thye need to pay ... Ms. Ned needs to file a law suite on them ....

I would suggest a second opinion from a doctor from this site
