I was 7 wks preg and pretty certain I was having a miscarriage, but when I got to the hospital no one did a vag exam they did an Ultrasound and said its confirmed your having a tubal pregnancy you need surg asap I was informed of the risks of surgery BUT NEVER consented to removing my fallopian tube anyway the surgeon went in saw it was NOT an ectopic/tubal and CUT OUT my fallopian tube ANYWAY with out my consent, Now I am left unable to have anymore children. My question is why didn't they have a radiologist review this to confirm this mistake and why didn't the surgeon stop the surg when she new it was only a cyst the U/s tech saw? she could have ref to a GYN dr but now........ I am devistated also I ended up having a vaginal miscarry 8 days later at work. Shameful!This happened a couple of weeks ago and I do have ALL my medical records. I am looking for counsel now. Thank you for your help I work for a dr who upon seeing my records told me to get a GOOD lawyer this is a case.
