Q. I had Dr. Scott put a stimulator in my 5th lumbar they told me that it would stay in my button cheek, we'll it's moved
A: If you have doubts on the advice the doctor is giving you, seek out a second opinion.

As to the moving of the device, if it moved due to a breach of the standard of care, there may be a case. Not all bad results are malpractice. Additionally, the nature and extent of your harm due to any malpractice may effect the viability of any lawsuit.
Q. Defective service of process by mail.
A: Licensed process server that you hire should know the laws as to proper service. They don’t always. Therefore you instruct them where you find that knowledge lacking or hire someone else.

Just like in all endeavors, people are paid for services they perform. If the performance is below par, they should be paid less or not at all. Often it is best to simply hire quality personnel.
Q. How to sue my attorney for the money that should have been awarded if they would have properly handled my case
A: To sue for malpractice, it is recommended that you consult with Legal malpractice attorneys. You may search on this website for Attorneys

Note, in order to approve Malpractice, you must prove that the attorneys violated standard care, and that, but for the attorneys Malpractice, you would have received a better result.
