I was diagnosed with initial stage prostate cancer, that could be cured either with surgery or radiation. Following my urologist advice I went for surgery, with the robotic Da Vinchi. Post surgery, the surgeon told me that he managed to remove all the gland and the cancer.
3 months later, I found out that he left all the cancer inside, and exposed (no longer contained)
I need to go through a very tough treatment, including hormone therapy and radiation. Cure is doubtful.
Is this considered mal practice?
If this is not mal practice, may I be compensated for my worsened condition due to the surgery?
Can I be compensated for my much more risky cancer stage and risks due to the additional treatment?
