    I went to see Dr. Robert Owens in Dallas regarding stapedectomy surgery. He met me for only a few minutes, told me he was overbooked, explained nothing about the surgical procedure I was about to have--said the nurses would tell me, but they rushed me down to pre-admit without answering. I did not find out until the day of surgery (20 minutes prior) that I was going to be under general anesthesia, be intubated or have an IV. I was noticably upset (crying and stating I was nervous and scared) and he stated that this was an elective procedure and if I was this upset, maybe I should leave and walked out of the pre-op room. He did not speak to me after the procedure, so I had no idea if I had otoscerlosis or not and had to call the office 2 days after surgery to find out I had packing in my ear and to be told not to get my ear wet. I felt completely unprepared for the surgery. No one answered any of my questions and it really was a scary and terrible experience. I wrote him 2 letters and have had a lot of anxiety over this surgery. I think about it constantly and cannot even see anything related to "surgery" etc., without thinking about what happened to me. I could not even go to my own family doctor for an appt., I ended up walking about before I got to see her. I obtained my medical reoords and found out there was a student in the room during my surgery, without my knowledge. I later learned the bruise on my ankle was from blood taken out during the surgery. The bruise lasted a month and was the size of my fist. The doctor said the anesthesiologist took the blood from my ankle, but he does not note this in the medical records. I am worried the "student" was allowed to do this. I wasn't told until 3 weeks after the surgery that a bone was removed from my ear. It's scary realizing how they moved my unconscious body around during surgery and all the drugs they gave me. Really terrible anxiety, not sure what I should do about this. Any suggestions on what I should do to tell others, should I write to the ENT that referred me and to my family doctor? I feel like I have some type of obligation to do so??
