Since you are having problems swallowing food, it would be helpful to you to get a copy of the operative report to find out exactly what the surgeon did during the surgery. Then, you'll be able to see if the surgery that was done was the one that you consented to and whether anything unusual happened. You don't say what the surgery was for in the information you provided, and that information will of course be important. If you have further questions at that point, you may want to retain a FL attorney for further review. There are time deadlines for filing suit so you should retain an attorney as soon as you can if you want to file suit.
Good luck to you.
Request a copy of the surgical reports, consent for surgery, and of the pathology reports. See a lawyer who does med mal. See my site for an explanation of medical malpractice in Florida. See www.FloridaPersonalInjuryTrialLawyer.com
If the doctor fell below the standard of care and that caused you damages, then you may have a case. However, just because things didn't go as planned, that alone doesn't mean that you should bring a claim. Get your complete chart and run it by your friend in the medical field. If they think it looks bad, then consult a medical negligence attorney to see about running it by an expert to get an opinion.
