5 months post opt spinal stenosis rods screws horrible leg pain

L5 l4 l3 cleaned. And screws post. L4 l5. Started pain management and got first injection 30th dec. They were horrible staff. They woke me up put me in wheel chair sent me home. No monitoring. Did not give me discharge instructions about sugar meds. Sugar went sky high was really sick. I live 50 miles away and they could not be reached. Er here said continue meds now. Finally under control. I have askef to be discharged on basis i need a dr in local. Town . I was told he wouldnt unless he did something wrong. Might give me a dismissal letter. Which indicates to me he is telling other drs i was non compliant. No one even removed all the monitor sticky tabs off me. I would say he was not giving me good standard of care not monitoring me after waking me up. QUESTION..MY PAIN STARTED 1 MONTH AGO. PAIN OFF AND ON IN MID BUT.
