    The medical staff for the Jazz might have some openings. They probably could get you right in.

    The gyms are all closed. My fat *** ain’t getting in no rowboat. I have enough unused workout equipment in my house already. Besides, being fat tastes better.

    Hurting today but it feels so much better than the last surgery. I'm positive the last surgery was botched from when it ended with the amounts of pain I had. It doesn't feel like I have braces in my collarbone or a vice in my collarbone - at least as of now.

    I hope this time I heal up quickly. I'm tired of having such bad luck.

    2020 has taught me whenever you think that life can't get any worse, it can and it will.

    Bring it on, 2020 you lil bitch.

    @LogGrad98 do you think I should talk to a lawyer about this? To me, it seems like the first surgery just wasn't done right and the doctor of his assistants didn't listen to me complaining about the pain I was having.

    He put in a larger plate this time and it feels so much better. I mean, I guess I don't know if the guy did anything wrong and things like this just happen. I just know I feel a lot better after this one and wonder why things weren't different from the last one.

    I'd get a second opinion for sure and ask for a different medical group to analyze the original films and the films after your most recent surgery. You might have a case. It's worth looking into. Even if just for the peace of mind.

    This. I'd guess a medical malpractice lawyer would give you a free consultation or something like that. Or you only pay if you get money type of thing. I'd guess the only thing you'd be out is your time.

    If you have to you have to, but do all you can to stay away from going the legal route. Be happy and healthy and just move on. Only my 2¢.

    He did such a bad job you went back to him for the second surgery? Seems like an obvious point that would hurt your case. And you say they didn’t listen to you but they did eventually and performed the second surgery.

    Seems like they’d just say there is not 100% certainty these surgeries work perfectly and they could easily spin this and the rest of what I’ve said. Can’t hurt to speak to someone. Not sure if you had to pay for the second surgery but maybe you shouldn’t have to pay for that.

    I'm not the guy that normally goes the legal route. I've had at least 5 people (friends, family, and co-workers) who have advised me to talk to a lawyer. So just kind of testing the waters. I see nothing wrong with going the legal route if there was a mistake on the doctor's end. The plate popped within the first 24 hours of the surgery and they wouldn't listen to me until I demanded an X-Ray 3 weeks later. Is it wrong, in your opinion to do so?

    My whole wreck, the situation, the hell and the predicament it put me through has just been a nightmare, physically and financially.

    Oh, btw, I don't have my health and that's my problem. Lol

    You could probably go after the city for the missing stop sign too. They even admitted to knowledge of it.

    This is probably the best course of action. They should reimbursed for any legal fees, medical bills, future medical costs, and future lifestyle issues. Could probably win 250K with a good lawyer.

    If someone hits your car while you're driving and they make your car unsafe to drive would you follow your own advice? Just suck it up, don't pursue compensation?

    Unfortunately, cities are protected from things like this due to sovereign immunity unless I can prove the city had records of the sign missing.

    Good luck with your string of bad luck. Really.

    And if you choose to get lawyers involved I'm not here to judge that. Good luck with that too.

    I went in for X-Rays and he said I need emergency surgery to fix it ASAP. I didn't really feel like I had a choice and was hurting.
