Post cataract surgery eye problems

I had surgery in June, 2013. During the surgery under anesthesia, I experienced a very sharp pain and was given more meds that totally knocked me out! By the next morning, I was in excruiating pain, even though the surgeon had told me I would not have pain. I went in to the surgeon that morning, with my face covered. This was because I could not bear even a drop of light. It was horrible! So painful, I had to keep BOTH eyes closed, I could not bear to move my eyes. By the next day I could open my eyes; but now I had like a curtain that would move across my eye when I looked to the right. And I had no side vision!! The next problem was a bright flash of light from the corner of the eye and floaters. I still have all these problems - two months later. Every doctor I go to tells me something different. They're all either incompetent or they're covering up for the surgeon. I need help so badly.
