Dr Margareth Lobo $41,000 surgery – bone not fixed and a medical screw in the middle of my joint

October 2020, I broke my heel in multiple pieces in a car accident. I was then taken to Lahey Hospital in Burlington/MA. Surgery was recommended by Dr Margareth Lobo, plates and screws would be placed to join the pieces and reposition my bone. I agreed with her treatment, and after 21 days she did the surgery at Lahey Hospital. For two months I had to bed rest because my wound open, what she never mention that this or any other complication could happened. She said only good things, pushing me to do surgery.
After three months of the surgery, I was released to start walking and go to the physical therapy. The pain only increased rather than decreased as Dr Lobo told me it would happen, and my progress in physical therapy was getting worse.
Almost four months after the surgery, In one appointment with dr Lobo I was explaining my concerns related to pain and how I could see that my foot was crocket and just placing my foot on the floor, it rolls inside, she cut me off saying I was compensanting the pain and practically called me dramatic, comparing me with patients who in my situation still were still depended on a wheelchair. I didn’t want to believe that a doctor would lie and be so negligent at that point, but deep inside, I knew something was wrong, my pain was too strong and she never showed any concern or asked me for other exams.
So I kept doing and waiting as she told me to do. But after almost six months of waiting, I decided to look for second opinions. Three different surgeons, through more detailed exams, diagnosed that she did not put my bone back in place, as she put a screw in my joint, which even with the x-ray was visible, which I now have arthritis and will have to do another surgery to try to fix what she made even worse. In my opinion she is an awful surgeon and extremely negligent! Needless to say she lied to me for 6 months. Nobody deserves to be fool for a doctor, this is my foot!! My health!!
