I had breast surgery to remove a lump in my breast on December 19th, 2011. Something was removed and sent to the lab and came back as benign. I previously had a lot of pain and itching in my breast, and continued to have since the surgery. This evening I was finally able to examine my breast (due to the surgery pain I was not able to) and I discovered that the lump I had gone in to have remove is STILL in my breast! I have spent the evening incredibly ill, crying and horrified I still have an unknown lump in my breast. Is this malpractice? What should I do? I plan on calling the doctors office in the morning, but I am not sure I should go back there. Any advice is appreciated.
