Complications following surgery lead to pain and misery

Our client felt stomach pains which she had been told might occur, but she was not expecting to have sustained any damage to her bladder/ureters.

Our client had to be incredibly persistent in order to receive her diagnosis of endometrial cancer, having suffered several vaginal bleeds for over a year with numerous trips to see her Consultants before the adenocarcinoma was discovered.

Luckily for our client the cancer was contained within her womb and had not spread, so a seemingly straightforward hysterectomy with bilateral oophorectomy was the standard procedure to remove the threat of the cancer. However, following the surgery, she experienced complications during her recovery which lead to much pain and misery.

Not long after being discharged, our client felt stomach pains which she had been told might occur, but she was not expecting to have sustained any damage to her bladder/ureters causing her to dribble urine. Over the following months she needed a series of hospital visits to insert a nephrostomy, urinary catheter and stent.

The distress of the events caused our client psychological upset in the form of both anxiety and some depression. Even now that all the additional equipment has been removed, our client has been left with ongoing urological problems.

FAQs
What is medical negligence?
Medical Negligence is when a medical practitioner such as a doctor, nurse, midwife, dentist or an institutional health provider breaches his or its duty of care to you and you are injured as a result of that breach.
How can I find out if medical treatment was negligent?
We can on your behalf, conduct an independent investigation into the standard of medical treatment you have received. We will be required to obtain disclosure of all relevant medical records - both hospital and GP - in the manner set out in the pre-action protocols. Once all of the relevant medical records have been received they will be considered on a preliminary basis. They will then be reviewed by a medical chronologist who will index and paginate the records to ensure that they are in some semblance of order.
