I am 33 n have to opt for Ivf due to tubal issues. We went to a doctor who told us to try for 3 months naturally with meds like femara, but we did not succeed. By the time he changed my Thyroid drug's dosage from .50mcg to .75mcg. We began our shots in May before which he prescribed bcp for a month. On many occasions though my husband requested for a blood test he refused to do it. He took the last one in Feb n now in May just the day I started my shots. He gave us a bad news that my tsh was 22. I asked him if it was due to any drug interactions by the bcp he gave me, but he strongly disagreed. Later he checked the same after changing my medication from generic to brand now the result after a week is 2.5. He went ahead n performed the egg retrieval n we got 18 out of which 11 fertilized in the next few days we came to know that we got 4 embryos but unfortunately we have to freeze them coz of the antibiotics he gave without increasing the dosage of my Thyroid drug n tsh 8.He sent us to an endocrinologist, since he told he needs help with my Thyroid, who confirmed that our doubt was right n that tsh increases with drug interactions and he increased my dose to 1 mg we are depressed.
Are you being treated for anxiety and depression? It would appear that even if there was negligence which is doubtful you suffered no injury as a result. You are also trying to make a medical negligence claim in Mississippi?
In order to find out if you were the victim of negligence, you need to retain a lawyer willing to investigate the claim. The lawyer will gather your medical records and have them reviewed by a medical expert who will be asked to offer an opinion as to whether 1. the care and treatment you received fell below the applicable standard of care and 2. caused an injury. There is no claim to pursue unless and until such an opinion is secured.
If you feel this is the "best" answer or is "helpful," please indicate. Since I am limited to the information you provide, I cannot guarantee the accuracy of the answer. You should seek the advise of an attorney who can explore all aspects of your question. This communication does not form an attorney client relationship.
If medication change was a departure from accepted standards and the damages warrant then seek out local malpractice consultation. These cases are expensive to pursue and unless damages justify legal action you may have trouble finding counsel to champion your cause.
1. You do not ask a question.
2. If you have concerns about your medications, get a second opinion.
