She was having significant back pain.
She went to a world famous neurosurgeon.
He told her this was a “Routine procedure.”

The surgery went well.
No complications.
She was sent back to the recovery room and then discharged home hours later. She was given postoperative instructions on what to watch for.

She was told that if she had complaints of tingling or numbness in her feet or legs, to immediately call the office.

What do you think happened later that evening while she is at home?

She began to experience tingling and numbness in her toes and feet. Her husband called the neurosurgeon’s office. It was late at night.

The doctor’s service answered.
The husband left a message with the doctor’s answering service.
Hours went by without any callback from the doctor.

By the morning, the doctor still had not called and the husband again called the service.

It was now the weekend and the husband was upset that the doctor had not called back, especially after being instructed to do so.

The neurosurgeon’s answering service informed the husband that they would pass along his message to the doctor.

One hour, no response.
Two hours, no response.
Three hours, no response.

Finally, the husband got so fed up that his wife’s condition was worsening that he put her into the car and rushed her to the closest emergency room.

In the emergency room doctors recognized she had a neurosurgical emergency and needed emergency surgery.

By this time her neurosurgeon had been contacted by the hospital and finally arrived at the hospital to perform this corrective surgery, the damage had already been done.

The doctors at the hospital agreed that had she been taken into surgery hours earlier, when the window of opportunity presented itself, she would not have suffered the permanent injuries that she ultimately did.
