Has anyone been humiliated by their surgeon?

On April 24, 2018 lower left lobe was scheduled to have double thoracentesis, unfortunately surgery turned into 6 hours which was only suppose to be 2. Intubated wasn’t even informed of why. In so much pain which they just assumed I was an addict. First time up and walking The Surgeon standing in front of room full people called me a stoner, that I was so stoned I couldn’t stop staring, wrong I was glaring. But dumbfounded the Code of Ethics was broken, I knew them, Told me get off floor. But tell drain tube was removed I could not leave AMA. Devastated it will be a cold day in hades before that idiot ever touches again. Patient advocate contacted, called a lawyer NO HELP. By the way pneumonia will probably kill me Oncologist replied. Amazed how they stay certified.

    I’m so sorry to hear of this experience. That must have been incredibly frustrating and difficult. No one should feel humiliated by medical professionals. Thinking of you @DMCLKCrane56.
