have now. This past January I went in for an ESI (10 minute procedure
for scar tissue). Needless to say the radiologist missed his mark and
punctured my thecal sac and injected the dye w/steroids. I was
paralyized from the waist down immediately. Needless to say...
emergency surgery was done to remove the fluid/dye. I have full use of
my right leg, but the left leg is just there with very sciatic pain in
the upper portion of my leg. I was told that I was just going to have
to accept the fact that I was going to be disabled/handicapped for the
rest of my life. Any words of wisdom? Much appreciated.
NO! NO! NO! I am not in the same situation but I have been a Para for 24 years and you must have some recourse. I know the name of an attorney in Santa CruzMessage 2 of 2 , Jul 15, 2005View SourceNO! NO! NO!
I am not in the same situation but I have been a Para for 24 years and you must have some recourse. I know the name of an attorney in Santa Cruz that has been a Quad since he was in his early teens and he is in his 60's now. He might be able to give you some direction of what to do and where to go.
I myself am a para and have been for 24 years. What happened to you is inexcusable and don''t let anyone tell you any different.
The Attorney's name is Robert Ludlow and he practices in Santa Cruz and in Hawaii. I moved away from Santa Cruz 2 yrs. ago but I am sure he is around.
I am sorry to hear that there is still people practicing medicine like the person you had. I was a nurse for 40 years and saw some terrible things happen over the years but now with all the regulation and laws this should not happen.
Well good luck to you and please if you need a shoulder feel free to e-mail me.
