please read this!!!!!

hello, i am fairly new to this forum but i just had to tell someone what has happened to me and get advice or see if this happened to anyone else ever!!! well to start off i had a baby 18 months ago by c-section, and after i had my son hubby and i wanted to get pregnant soon b/c we are in our late 20's ,him early 30's and wanted kids asap, well i didnt get a regular period for a long time actually after my sons first b-day is when i noticed something really wrong i had a horrible infection, e-coli/strep vaginally w/ an odor and discharge, well non of the 3 docs i seen found anything and i had ultrasounds ect..... well finally i found a doc who really examined me and found that i had sutures hanging out of my uterus through my cervix from when i had c-section apparently the sutures never dissolved or wrong ones were used anyway my doc removed one but was soooo painful they had to schedule me for a d&c, well they finally got about 7 sutures out and doc says she thinks i should be able to get pregnant again. Well needless to say i am very upset i have umpteen doc bills for ultrasounds ect...and no-one wants to take responsablity for all this. Should i try to do something about this or not???? any advice is greatly appreciated, i am sorry to ramble but i am sooo furious about all of this i am afraid i may not get pregnant ever again or if i do i could have problems... Thanks again for listening while i vent.. take care and God bless

You can talk to a lawyer and see what he/she would have to say. Make sure you take copies of your bills and medical records for all that so he/she can look over it.

Absolutely talk to a lawyer. That's why it is called Malpractice insurance. You have a legitimate case.

You could call around and see if you can find a lawyer who offers a free initial consultation. I know some do, or at least I hear them advertise that they do. It's worth a try!

I would definitely go see someone! You have been in pain; you have lost precious fertile time; your husband has probably suffered with you; you may not have been able to give your son the kind of attention you wanted to (NOT your fault- I know you wanted to!) because of the pain and countless doctor visits; you and/or your husband's jobs have probably suffered because of time off for sickness and doctor visits....
the list is truly endless!

Like someone else said, you are the reason they created malpractice suits- to compensate you and to protect others! I know that if I were you, I would sleep better at night knowing that I was fighting this. Remember, however, that fighting this could be a big dedication of time and effort. Make sure your family backs you and that you understand everything that this kind of lawsuit might entail. It could even interfere with your recovery, and I know that's not what you want. Just be sure to get realistic facts and estimated time tables from the lawyer!

Good luck, and take heart. I pray that you will quickly heal and that you and your husband will be blessed with another pregnancy and child soon! <IMG SRC="">
