You should have your case reviewed by a Pennsylvania medical malpractice attorney asap. While infections and "double bubbles" are not uncommon, improper surgical technique and care can often lead to poor results. We would need a copy of all records, and before and after photos in order to review. Please let me know if you have any questions.

You definitely need to consult with a local medical malpractice attorney because improper surgical technique and inadequate post surgical follow up seems to have played a part in your case.

Do not wait, contact an experienced medical malpractice attorney ASAP.

Surgical/incisional infections are relatively common but can cause a lot of complications. They slow healing and they can alter appearance. That you acquired a post-op infection is not likely "provable" as something caused by medical negligence. Infections happen even when everything is done right. However, it's not possible to determine whether a surgical misadventure that affected the outcome. You might want to consult with a local PA lawyer to have them review your chart.
