Thank you for using JustAnswer.

I'm sorry to hear about your situation. Just because you had surgery doesn't mean you have a lawsuit. To have a lawsuit, you have to have a valid "cause of action", and typically when it's against a doctor it's based upon malpractice. That's alleging that the doctor did something that should not have been done, or didn't do something that should have been done. Could you explain a bit more about your situation and why you think that you might have a case?
