I used to have 5 miagranes a week now its down to 1 to 2
I would recommend speaking with an attorney on this matter immediately to see what your rights are but also to see if your statute of limitations has passed. Good luck!
DISCLAIMER: I am an attorney licensed to practice law in the State of Iowa only and not in any other state. The response I have provided is based on the limited information stated in your question or hypothetical scenario. Quite often, a more complete understanding of the facts would lead to different advice or to a broader discussion of relevant or related considerations. The answer provided does not create an attorney-client relationship between us. You should not decide to act or refrain from acting based on my response, which is an attempt to provide general information on a legal topic as presented by you. The law is subject to frequent change and varies from state to state. Also, legal matters often involve deadlines that may significantly affect your legal rights. You should always consult with an attorney in your own state who is knowledgeable in the subject matter, and you should do so as soon as possible.
The primary issues appear to be: (1) whether Great River Medical Center failed to timely diagnose your abdominal situation; and (2) when you were put a notice of a possible medical malpractice claim involving GRMC (statute of limitations issue). I suggest that you immediately contact an Iowa attorney who represents victims of medical malpractice.
