My wife is a Physical Therapy graduate. During her internship, she had encountered several orthopedic cases. She even had one patient that she monitored even at home post op. During that time, she told me stories about her patients and the pain that they had gone through especially after the operation. One case that she specifically got attracted to was the hip patient who happened to be our neighbor. The post-op experience was really painful and she could see that agony in her patient's face.
I wonder...could it be that she was one of those patients who should go back for another surgery? I just read about this DePuy Hip Replacement lawsuit and there was or there are really such cases. She could file for a liability claim.
