a liver biopsy was also done while removing the gallbladder. The next day after surgery I started bleeding from one of the puncture sites. The doctor on call said to put pressure dressing and call the surgeon. The pressure dressings didnt stop the bleeding, but direct pressure from my finger over the hole did, howver the nurses kept putting the dressing and refused direct pressure from my hand. After my skin turned a ghost white gray color and my by dropped to 80s over 60s a surgeon came in about 10-11 hours after I started bleeding and stitched me up. I was in a great deal of pain but could not have any pain med until my blood pressure came back up which took at least 9 units of whole blood and fresh frozen plazma, Is this a mistake that shouldnt have been made? Do I have a lawsuit here?
