What to do about a doctor who didn't do a proper follow-up to my surgery?
I had a knee replacement 2 years ago. I had constant pain during and after physical therapy, and the ROM never progressed. About 6 weeks later had to have it manipulated and the ROM months later was at 75 degrees. The doctor kept sending me to physical therapy, telling them to work my knee out hard. The doctor moved to another state and so I went to another doctor. He and he took an X-ray and found out the knee wasn't working correctly, so he did a revision. My knee is much better but has damaged muscles and tendons from the first knee. Would I have a case against the first doctor, who told me there was nothing wrong? Should I speak with a malpractice attorney? In Fannin County, TX.
