I called to inquire about my eligibility in the class action and was told they were only handling cases after 2000, however, if I could get the records they would look at it. I went to the hospital (in Louisiana) to retrieve my file and was told they were purged. This is the same hospital I had a child in 1994 (of which they had on file). In 2/1996 I had my uterus and a ruptured hernia removed, at the same time. not to mention I was readmitted, due to vomiting, for another day or two (those files were purged). Later in 1996 (10/1996) I went to ER with a UTI, (that record was on file). The only record I have is the fact that the doctor told me he implanted mesh to hold my bladder in place and he showed me a picture, because I was the smallest patient he had with a hernia that size.
