I had a herniated disc at L5-1. The surgeon operated on the disc but I was still in pain for a month afterward. He did another MRI to find out that he did the level above. He was very honest with admitting the mistake and explained to me how I had 'different' anatomy. I let him take out the disc during a second operation and I've done well.
What are my rights for undergoing this wrong level surgery? The doctor was honest and direct accepting responsibility for the mistake. He admittedly made a mistake and corrected it. How does this affect whether I have a case?
