Can I persue a case where inadaquit care was given by a hospital / surgeon ????

Asked almost 2 years ago - Clark, NJ

I recently had surgery. about 2 weeks after the surgery I felt there was something wrong I called and called the Dr and after 8 days finally got an appt which I showed up for, unfortunately HE did not. I called and called leaving messeges about the urgecy but no on called back, Finally went to the ER and was told that I had an infection. Went to a urologist who confirmed the infection and also confirmed I was given inadaquit care.
Now if antibiotcs don't work, i'll need another procedure to correct what the surgeon messed up.
do I have a course of action
