Original questioned medical record suspected of having been changed. The specific area is “I recommend against the operation.”

Indented writing (ESDA) recovered from the page above and right in the medical records displays everything from the previous page except the questioned entry.  This would indicate that the questioned entry was written subsequent to the rest of the page (possibly after the patient died and a lawsuit was initiated).
