Do I have a case of malpractice?

Question Details: During shoulder surgery, it was suppossed to be some small incisions to fix my rotator cuff. There was substantial damage so I was cut open, after a month I wasn't feeling good, had a stitch pop, I thought I caused it. The doctor took a look and said I was infected, told me it was from me falling that caused it. That day I had to go in for surgery to clean it out immediately. I ended up having to go to a disease specialist. I was told that it was a very bad infection that came from the surgery, not from me. It was so bad that I had to go to hospital right away and get a pic line put in for a month. The infection weakened my bones in my shoulder and the original surgery came undone. After infection cleared I had to go in for third surgery to fix my shoulder again. The first surgery was just over 2 1/2 years ago; the last was 15 months ago. This was a long time of suffering, being sick and worst of all I had to pay for all of these extra doctors and surgeries for something not caused by me. This put me into credit card debt to pay for it all. Is this something I can move forward with?
