    Thank you for finally acknowledging it.
    I appreciate that.
    But still, these red herrings, you still have no idea what he was talking about doing or did in my surgery but you still claim it was the wrong thing to do.
    It wasn't.
    There are wires holding screws in place because my loss of pedicules at the T-3 level. He tried something new and it worked. He's going to teach it to other surgeons, present my surgery to them to show that it can be done.
    Can't you just be happy for that?

    I really do appreciate you finally taking some of this.

    Did you forget that you told us that Dr. Moreno was going to use Dyneses implants on you?

    And that was a mistake on my part because I didn't understand what he was talking about in terms of wires. Humans make mistakes Linda.
    I heard him in the office and talking about attempting to use something like Dyneses implants and thought I understood that is what he was going to do.
    That was clearly a misunderstanding on my part which was then cleared up at my pre-op appointment but by that time, I had no interest in coming back here to correct that information.
    I was far too frustrated.

    Anything else?

    And I'm not saying anything else in an aggressive manner. I'm asking if there's anything else that we need to clear up so that this whole situation can be put behind us and not taking jabs at each other or off remarks.

    This is an honest attempt to clear the air on any misunderstandings and issues we have.

    Thanks.

    Kat...

    Thanks. I've seen more than my fair share of scoliosis treatment disasters, and I wanted to try to help you avoid one. After looking at the system, I thought that the Dynesis implants would be a disaster for someone with scoliosis. I verified that with a few scoliosis specialists. The fact that Dr. Moreno was going to use those implants on you really scared me. I thought long and hard before saying anything to you at that time, as I didn't want to undermine your faith and trust in Dr. Moreno. I'm glad we cleared this up.

    Some food for thought... I wonder, looking back, if you knew someone was going to a surgeon who was going to use something that other surgeons considered dangerous, would you try to warn that individual, or would you let them be hurt?

    Regards,
    Linda

    I understand your reasoning now for what transpired, thank you. Back then, all I could see was someone adding to my already enormous fears and causing me to doubt.
    Thanks again for clearing that up.

    I honestly don't know what I would do. I would probably tell the person my concerns and hopefully not scare them. I would hope that I would choose my words carefully enough to not intimidate or undermine, but to ask them to double check and make sure that this is what their surgeon was going to do.
    As in my case, it was a huge misunderstanding on my part and probably due to my fears and nervousness. When sitting in that office 2 weeks out from surgery, you can barely focus on what's happening. Well at least that was my case. I heard Dyneses system when in actuality, he said something like Dyneses system. He just wanted to use wires.
    If I had played back the recording we made that day, I would have heard what was actual and not a misunderstanding.
    I really should have done that seeing as how he gave me permission to record him.

    Thank you for taking the time to clear this up and glad that we both acknowledge our own takes on this.


    Have a good afternoon.
