Doctor cut out my uvula without my permission!! HELP!!
I had a tonsillectomy and deviated septum surgery on June 8th. To say the least that was the most horriffic experience I had ever gone through.
Anyways.... When I first got my tonsils removed I noticed that my uvula was missing and I had been experiencing weird, uncomfortable, embarrassing side effects such as making funny noises when I swallow food or drink. I am not talking little noises loud enough for other people to hear, or if I swallow food or drinks it goes half way up my nose and then back down. I am also unable to cough up things, etc.
On my final follow up appointment, I asked the doctor if he cut out my uvula. He said no and made the comment"Are things shooting out of your nose!" He said that he didn't cut out my uvula and that it "was hiding and in stress because of the surgery!". Ok so I believe him, he is the doctor my uvula is coming back!! Well.. It is now July 24 and I still don't have my uvula and I am still going through these embarrasing moments.
Has anyone ever heard of your uvula being in stress and hiding and coming back? I mean come on, there are only so many places for it to hide.lol... If the doctor happened to accidently cut mine out, am I able to sue?
I mean I am not the sue happy type but I feel that if the doctor accidently cut something out without my consent and now I am having hardship over it I think something should be done.
Please let me know!! I am really interested to know if my uvuvla will come out of hiding! lol
