Here's what Google says, but do confirm:
The statute of limitations for medical malpractice in Virginia is two years from the date of injury in most cases. Va. Code Ann. § 8.01-243.Jul 28, 2017

Your question was mislabeled by AVVO as a car accident question; I'm moving it to the more appropriate medical malpractice section.
In medical malpractice actions like yours the general rule is that the statute of limitations accrues, or in other words begins to run, when the negligent care or malpractice first causes any degree of injury at all to the patient, OR the date of the patient's last continuous related treatment with the same negligent health care provider, whichever comes later.
It makes no difference from the SOL standpoint when the patient first realizes he is injured or first realizes that there may have been malpractice.
The statute of limitations accrual date in medical malpractice cases is frequently very fact specific so don't fool around with this; consult a knowledgeable medical malpractice attorney in Franklin County, Roanoke, etc., as soon as possible.
Two years from the date of the malpractice in most instances although there are narrow exceptions. Gather your medical records and consult local counsel for further clarity.
