    Detective Warchock:

    I contacted Marquette General’s Radiology Department once again on, May 19th, 2008, by telephone, regarding the x-rays that were reportedly done during the surgery.

    As I told you during our meeting on the 12th of May, 2008, the MGH Intraoperative Nursing Report indicates that there were three occasions that x-rays were done in the operating room. (This report is not part of the attached file, but will be made available to you.)

    The MGH radiology department has again informed me that they have only two of what were reportedly three of these x-rays done during the surgery.

    The first x-ray was reportedly done at 10:03 am and the second at 10:30 am, both relatively early in the operation and done to insure placement of markers at the proper levels of the cervical spine for identification of the areas to be operated upon.

    The report that goes with these x-rays is on page 9 of the attached PDF file.

    The issue of whether or not rescue screws were actually placed as stated is also fundamental to determining Craig Coccia’s intent regarding his actions during this operation.

    It has been determined that the screws that secure the plate are all eight of identical diameters. This was determined using the measuring utilities available on the computer viewing programs that come standard with the CT and MRI viewers on CDROM, that contain the images of the several scans that have been done postoperatively. “Rescue screws,” which are used to replace any screws that might be stripped when being tightened are of course of a larger diameter than the screws they replace in order to obtain “purchase” and tighten into the stripped hole in the vertebrae.

    While Craig Coccia’s operative report (pgs. 12,13,14), dictated 12/10/00, a single day before the 12/11/00 x-rays were done in Newberry, indicates bone grafts were placed at three levels, there is no mention of bone grafts in the radiology report the following day. Instead this report indicated the placement of bone chips, which were the remnants of Craig Coccia’s dissection and inspection. The lack of any signs of calcification was also noted, which indicates no fusing of any sort taking place in these initial postoperative weeks.

    If you read through all these radiology reports and compare them with the office notes, you’ll find the only mention of bone grafts are made by Craig Coccia.

    None of the radiologists make any reference to bone grafts whatsoever, or the incorporation thereof in any of their reports.

    This is because there were no proper bone grafts placed during this surgery

    On page 4 of this attachment are the office notes from 09/13/00. It was on this date that I brought with me the x-ray films from the Mayo Clinic and showed Craig Coccia the results of the previous fraudulent surgery that had been done on me on 11/12/97. My wife and I explained to him some of what had happened there and of the resulting harm it had caused our family.

    Craig Coccia then assured us both that he was fully capable of correcting the psuedoarthrosis and fusing C5,C6 and C7 and though he couldn’t guarantee I’d be pain free, because of damage already done to my nerves after being compromised for so long, he was certain he’d have no problem correcting the reverse lordosis of my cervical spine that had been caused by the injury and subsequent improper surgery.

    He went on to state as well, that although he empathized with us regarding what had been done, that he wasn’t willing or able to become involved in the ongoing worker’s compensation case as either direct witness or make any statements regarding the surgical results.

    Following the cancellation of the surgery scheduled for October 12th, 2000, Craig Coccia drafted the letter on page 6 of this attachment to Paul Tomasi, Special Assistant Attorney General, employed by Jennifer Granholm to handle my worker’s comp case, who answered as well to Mike Flowers of Accident Fund, a wholly owned subsidiary of Blue Cross Blue Shield of MI.

    After reviewing the post surgical x-ray films from the Mayo Clinic with my wife and I on the 13th of September, 2000 and knowing that no proper graft had been placed between C6 and C7 during this surgery, Craig Coccia went on to repeat the statements he had also placed in his office notes for August 30th, 2000 in this letter, knowing that this letter would later be used by Mr. Tomasi to defend the actions of the MI Department of Corrections, the Accident Fund and the Mayo Clinic in my case against the State for worker’s compensation.

    In a previous series of e-mails between us under the heading Intent, I made mention that the cancellation on short notice of this surgery that had been scheduled for October 12th, 2000 was the only instance that I could think of that I had done anything that would have been personally upsetting to Craig Coccia, that may have impacted his decision to do me harm in the operating room on November 21st, 2000.

    While this may hold for Craig Coccia, Mike Flowers on the other hand might have also played a critical role in my surgical plan and outcome as well and had a part in persuading Craig Coccia to do what he did in the MGH O.R. that day.

    The evidence for this is clearly circumstantial, in the form of a page of my MGH records that wasn’t made available to me when I originally requested a copy of my records for this surgery back in 2001. I obtained a second set of my records for this surgery in April of 2007, just after a scheduled Court date and a considerable delay on the part of MGH records department. I had been told my records were not immediately available as they’d been sent downstate for scanning into electronic format and were then to be destroyed. I requested at that time they be preserved, because of alterations of these documents that were done after they’d been entered into the record originally, that would no longer be apparent in an electronic format, though these alterations are readily apparent in paper and ink.

    Anyway, the original request in 2001 yielded 70 pages and the 2007 request yielded 76. Some of the difference being the inclusion of requests for records and releases, however one of the documents that was not included in the 2001 request, a presurgical checklist, dated November 8th, 2000, some eight days after my compensation case was settled, has the name of Mike Flowers on it under the line where an insurance policy number was to be filled in.

    This is unexpected for several reasons, the most important being that Accident Fund had denied all medical and other benefits for my injury on 12/17/94 with the exception of my original E.R. visit to Munising Memorial on the DOI.

    All my medical was being covered by BCBS of MI, not the Accident Fund.

    Even in Accident Fund had been covering my medical, which they had not, Mike Flowers was personally well aware that on the 1st of November, 2000, that my case was settled, as Mr. Tomasi and I were negotiating the settlement, it was Mike Flowers to whom Mr. Tomasi was speaking with by telephone to approve the amount as we prepared to otherwise proceed to trial of my case in the State Building in Escanaba, MI on 11/01/00.

    This information should have never been a part of my MGH record and certainly should not have been withheld from me in the aftermath of what had happened.

    As for the matter of Mike Flowers’ intent and what might have motivated him to wish harm upon me, beginning around October 1st of 2000 as my trial loomed ahead and negotiations has stalled, I contact my State Representative, Mike Prusi and State senator Walter North regarding what had been done to me and my grievances with how my case was being handled and unnecessarily delayed.

    When this yielded only limited results, I e-mailed the entire State Legislature, officials of the MDOC, the Governor’s office and of course the Accident Fund
    several e-mails with pertinent information regarding my case, drawn mainly from a website I had published on the web, under the heading Ask Mike Flowers.

    It was the reaction I was subsequently informed that this e-mail campaign had provoked that was the primary reason I cancelled the surgery scheduled for October 12th, 2000 and decided to postpone any further medical treatment until resolution of my worker’s compensation case.

    I’m not bringing this up for the purpose of broadening any investigation you initiate as these circumstantial factors are all well beyond the jurisdiction of the Marquette City Police Department, but feel it important to substantiate the allegations of a conspiracy of individuals beyond simply Craig Coccia that we, my wife and I, were attempting to explain to you on May the 12th, 2008.

    I will e-mail you as well my entire MGH hospital record in Adobe PDF format, the 2007 version that includes the aforementioned missing page.

    I should also have a copy in PDF format of at least one of the Ask Mike Flowers e-mails from the period of time in question leading up to this surgery and will e-mail you a copy of that as well.
