Surgery for fibromyalgia? Get a second opinion before you go for that. The facts you state do not jump out at me as a potential medical malpractice case, but if you seek legal advice, do so soon. CA has a very short statute of limitations for medical malpractice.

I am not licensed in CA but I also agree that you should get a second opinion regarding our condition. I have never had a client have surgery for fibromyalgia and as a physiologist it doesn't make sense. It is likely that if there was a delay on diagnosing your condition what ever it is - you have suffered pain and suffering for a limited time. Mather costs of bringing a claim may well exceed any potential recovery.
There is no cure for Fibromyalgia. There is no surgery that can be performed for it as well. Either you completely misunderstood what your doctor told you or he/she got his medical degree online after completing a short questionnaire.
Most definitely get a second opinion.
