Well, I hope your stomach is doing better. You can certainly have a local malpractice lawyer order your medical records to investigate
Yes Christian is correct, if what you are saying about what the Doctor told you is true, you should consult with a local Medical Malpractice attorney as soon as possible.

It won't hurt to follow the doctor's advice and immediately consult with an experienced medical malpractice attorney who can evaluate your claim.
You need to speak with a local attorney that does Medical Malpractice. I would not just go to any attorney because this is a very specific practice area with its own procedures. Feel free to contact our office and if we can't help you will try to find someone who can.
Do not wait though, you only have a short window of time to do anything about it!
