I was very sick and went to the hospital one doctor told me it was just a kidney infection and another doctor diagnosed me completely worn and I had to have surgery and they removed my appendix and there was nothing wrong with it. Ended up the first doctor was right it was only a kidney infection which didn't require surgery. This whole experience has traumatized me. Just wanted to see if anyone could help me. There is much more information on what happened but too long to put in full detail. Thanks looking forward to hearing back from someone
You need to make a face-to-face appointment with a medical malpractice lawyer. Search this website and find one near you. You probably can get a free consultation.
You need to provide more complete information 9as you indicate exists). You may have a medical malpractice case, but more information is needed to evaluate your situation.
Misdiagnosis of appendicitis with removal of appendix. Was surgery done laparscopically? How long was the hospital stay? Is appendix surgery healed without complications? Has kidney infection resolved? Was the an kidney damage due to delay in treating infection? Was appendicitis a reasonable diagnosis? Were pre=operative imaging studies performed? Were results consistent with appendicitis? Was medical history consistent with appendicitis? Many questions that need be investigated. Frequently, cases like this do not have adequate injuries to justify work and expense of malpractice case. Consult local counsel to see if your case meets that level.
The question will be whether the damages warrant the expense of litigation. Find a med mal attorney asap
