Q: I had rib plating surgery and had pain 2 months later. Screws have fallen out. Took 3 months to see a doctor

She won't even take an x-ray to see where the screw is before she goes in for another surgery which all she did was talk to somebody over the phone from her office because she never could make it to the appointment which I sat in the room for an hour and a half waiting..whole process has been a nightmare. They told me they wanted to fish around for the screw were their exact i have a case?
