I want to know if I can file medical malpractice suit ?

You can file a suit on just about any issue but whether you will have a valid legal claim for relief is a different story.
In NC, the law favors the doctors and you will need to be prepared to have a medical doctor testify as to the treating physician's malpractice under Rule 9(j). This is a very expensive process and usually limits the feasibility of a medical malpractice action to cases involving death or serious bodily injury such as loss of limb.
Ultimately, you have the ability to file a medical malpractice case but due to your damages, it does not sound like you will have a strong case for filing against the treating physician. Your case costs may run higher than your case could potentially be worth.
