I had to wait approximately 40 minutes to be taken back to the treatment room. Then the xray tech came to get me. The hallway was long and it was hard for me to walk back down the hall that I had just came down. Maybe the M.A. Could have dropped me off at the radiology room to avoid me walking so much. I had a hip replacement and also a bone was broken during the procedure. So I am in a lot of pain. Dr. Lancaster came in quickly with Thomas to review the xray. He commented that it was a poor xray quality. I really didn't need to hear that! Dr. Lancaster is usually a soft spoken man but he was quite loud and quickly left the room. I really expected some conversation about the fact that he broke my greater trochanter bone during the procedure and would have apologized. I've been put in a difficult situation of dealing with the extra pain and swelling because of the mishap in surgery. I live alone and it has been a hard transition in my recovery. My recovery time has been pushed back because of this bone being broken and I am not able to get on with life as I hoped would happen. Just a big mess as far as I'm concerned.

Very friendly and provided on X-rays. Then explained what was probably causing pain and recommended treatment and exercise and stretching after a two week period of letting the leg heal. Was easy to understand his instructions.
