sino pero sino que

Cuando me rompí la muñeca no me operaron ________ me pusieron un vendaje.When I broke my wrist they didn't operate on me but they put a bandage.(HINT: Choose "pero", "sino" or "sino que")i put sino que because there are two different verbs and they substituted an operation for a bandage is there another way of explaining the difference.  I've looked at other answers here and see that many people are confused with this.

Hola Julie

It's true that this could be seen either way so I have clarified with a hint to make sure this is seen as a substitution. I hope it helps.
