Can one side of pallate be expanded?

I don't know what to do. I am so upset. I went to a terrible orthodontist who installed my palate expander on incorrectly and as a result I have a very uneven palate now at 28. Can anyone give me any advice on how to correct this or where I should go. I made appointments with other orthodontics and some oral surgeons but have not had any luck. Its had me really depressed. He also left the braces on 8 years and it damaged my teeth I need full mouth implants and cant afford it. My left side of my palate is wider than the right side. The right side has a knot on my palate from where the arm of the expander cut into it. I tried sueing him but its hard finding a lawyer. My roof of my mouth was even before I wore the appliance and now it so jacked up. What do I do? I`m sick of paying for consultations at oral surgeons and them not helping me or fixing the problem. Are there any doctors out there reading this that can help me please. What do I do? Where do I go? Any good oral surgeons out there think they cant fix me or am I messed up after this? I am willing to travel.
