2011 Gallbladder surgery, diaphragm paralyzed, rare situations researched found. Been to Board of Medicine and the Litigation
have not received decision as yet. Sept 14th. State requires a Profesional who has had similiar situation happen to them, my research has provided none at this point. Small community, attorneys not willing to accept case. Attorney's realize the cost of this case would be very high for them. Idaho, has a Cap on amount that may be received.
I have done all the research with many facts, prevelent one is Phrenic Nerve damaged by Bile spilled from Gallbladder as grasper tore a rent, CO2 irritated Phrenic Nerve, bile spilled paralyzing diaphragm. Patient awoke in recovery in great pain on right quad extending from below the ribs up over the shoulder and down the back, kept two hours longer than normal, sent home unable to breathe ian great pain and lots of pain medication, 4 hours later in E.R. sent home refused to stay, back in E.R. next day with 102.5 temp and pneumonia for four days. Still in great pain, requested post-op tests same as pre-op found diaphragm paralyzed from late March tests to middle of April tests. Surgeon denied when asked if it happened in surgery, answer was 'Absolutely Not" No follow up, sent to Pulmonary doctor, solution CPAP, refused for did not have Sleep Apnea. Choose Medpractice and Neglect procedures and Financial due to losing much of my "Quality of Life as a Senior that is/was healthy, no medications" Seems attorneys refuse me for reasons stated above and they are not familiar with this type of situation.I have been on my own looking for solutions. How do I find an attorney to represent me, went to Board representing myself with lots of information, also was over-medicated by three different doctors, three different strengths in 4 days, to medication I am allergie to, Morphine, Codine, state in reports, they gave me Hydrocodone....Any suggestions? Surgeons attorney called me after Litigation wih excuse doctor thought up had not heard from him since he told me my diaphragm was paralyzed, why did she call? Do not intend to give up. Much of the quality of my life has been taken from me and no one has given me any info on the future of my life. Been hung out to dry.
