I had hemorrhoid surgery on Jan 5 of this year. Since then, I cannot evacuate without bleeding. The anal area is very constricted and it is painful. I feel like this is worse than the original hemorrhoids. I have to use laxatives all the time to keep my stools loose. And there is constant leakage. It is disgusting. Sorry for the graphic description. I went back to the doctor and she just ordered some cream for the external area. not helpful.
You can sue for damages but you first need to ascertain what was done wrong and if your current condition is as a result of a normal complication or secondary to a deviation from good and accepted standards of medical care. Contact local medical malpractice counsel and seek new medical opinions in order to preserve your health and your rights.

Recent, tort reform coupled with legal requirements with that type of case has taken many Texas law firms out of the Medical Malpractice practice (our firm will not handle medical malpractice claims).
Also know that bad results in a medical procedure do not mean that malpractice has occurred or that a claim is viable.
