HelloThis is Samuel. I am sorry to hear of this situation you are in. The Statute of Limitations to sue for medical malpractice/negligence is 3 years. However, because you had a second surgery in 2015 and the doctor said the first surgery was botched in 2010, I suggest you may still be able to sue because you did not find out about it being a problem until 2015. However, your medical records will be necessary and I suggest you might want to at least consult with a local medical malpractice attorney to see if the SOL can be tolled from 2010 and begin at 2015 when you first Discovery the problem was due to the bad surgery in 2010.
