        Even if all your questions are answered by the all-knowing
be wasting your time and effort and worse putting your life
in jeopardy if in the end you end up driving that car.
         Question for you: 
          If you had surgery for your leg and the doctor amputated
the leg instead and worse it was the wrong leg, would you
have wasted all these time arguing with the HMO, the doctor,
and the hospital? Would you have asked a list (i.e. med.com)
the specifics on arthroscopy, endoscopy, proctoscopy? Would
you have asked the specifics on rapid induction anesthesia?
The right blade for BKA (below knee amputation)?
           Most probably you would have hobbled in your remaining
bad leg to the best lawyer you can find in Massachusetts.

           This is NOT a flame, Brian. I am very much concerned
that you are not represented by a lawyer. There are more
frivolous lawsuits out there than valid ones. Yours appear
to be a valid one. 
            Get a lawyer!
