Thank you for your reply; I have one more question...You said normally novocaine would be used for pain relief; does this mean, for example, that morphine or some other drug given through his IV wouldn't have been sufficient for pain relief? Also, from what I remember novocaine injected in the mouth takes time to take effect, correct? If so then I am 100% certain he was not given novocaine because he simply wasn't out of my sight long enough.
And yes, I am pursuing getting the rest of the records. I fear they are being altered or have been altered, though, based on the way the receptionist spoke to me and the fact that they are being so uncooperative about getting them to me.
I'm sorry to bother you, but one more question. A friend suggested that I file a complaint to the state licensing board. How do I find out who to contact and how to go about doing that, if we do indeed decide to do so?
Thank you so much.
