Husband had stent put in heart 4/19/10-passed away 12/18/10-his body rejected stent. hospitalized 13 times AFTER-infections,etc. Wife later learned that stent was recalled BEFORE it was put in Husband. When asked, Dr. stated he felt this stent was best to use. Is this medical malpractice? Negilgence? Can wife sue for loss of husband & all it intails? Who would she sue/ Dr./, manfacturer of stent,/ who & for what? After shock of everything, I am finally "getting it together," & I'm ready to fight back. What are the time restraints on something like this in S.C.? Husband was 78 years of age at the time. Does age factor in? Why was stent still available, to anyone, after being recalled? How would I find this information out? I have an awful need to know the answers to all this. Thank You.
