Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
I am terribly sorry that this has happened to you. What I suggest is finding a local medical malpractice attorney who can help you with this case. As you probably are aware, a surgeon's level of care has to meet a certain standard, and this includes post-op follow-ups. His possible errors on the surgery as well as in the follow-up are grounds for a lawsuit where you could recover the cost of additional surgeries as well as recovery for pain and suffering.
I would suggest looking on a cite like avvo.com to find a medical malpractice attorney near you. They should be able to easily tell you whether you have or case or not and the next steps.
Let me know if you have any other questions that I can help you with.
