Is it malpractice if an organ that supposed to have been removed, wasn't?
Question Details: I have been dealing with a pain in my right abdomen for almost a year. We was in the process of changing insurances so I could not go to the hospital/doctor. After having a car accident and the pain intensified I went to the ER, I was later sent for a MRI that said possibly left cyst on ovary. I explained to the doctor that was impossible due to the fact that both my ovaries was removed 15 months ago. I went to my ob/gyn this doctor who did the surgery and through ultrasound revealed that I don't have my ovaries. He said, "You are okay". I went to another doctor for my well woman's exam and told her of my pain and she had an ultrasound done and she said I still have both my ovaries and that I have two cyst on my left and possible one on my right. She sent me for an MRI of the pelvis with and without contrast. The left ovary has a cyst. I go back to the first doctor who did my surgery and after doing another ultrasound he said yes both your ovaries are there and you have 2 cyst on the left and adhesion on the right. I got the ultrasound report that he did when he said my ovaries was not there and it reported that they was there at that time 4 months ago. He said, we must do the surgery and wants me to come in Tuesday for the operation. I have missed days of work due to the pain and even went down to part-time so that I would get terminated for missing so many days. I have to have this surgery over again. Every time I have surgery I get pulmonary embolism and have to give my self blood thinner shots for 6 weeks. Do Ihave the right to sue the doctor that did the first procedure? Should I speak with an attorney?
