Consult a medical malpractice attorney to be sure but it appears too much time has passed.

Unfortunately, you are almost certainly past the time limit to file. Consult with an attorney in Georgia immediately to confirm, but it would be rare to be able to bring a medical malpractice case 6 years after the negligence.

I'm not licensed to practice in Georgia, but there's a slim chance that a suit would still be possible. The answer may depends on when you should have known that an error had been made. Good luck.
My discussion with you regarding the question you posted on Avvo does not create an attorney-client relationship, nor is my response to your question to be considered legal advice. While I do my best to provide helpful responses given the factual scenario presented, proper analysis of any matter requires a more in-depth conversation than what is practical on Avvo. If you are a member of the military, or if an immediate family member of yours lost his or her life while fighting for our country, I am proud to offer a 10% discount on my fee.
I am sorry you are suffering through this. Unfortunately, you are out of time to file a suit. At best, you would get 2 years from the date of the x-rays to file suit, and based on your description of it being in 2010, you are out of time. I hope you heal well
