Medical Malpractice Lawsuit Filed Over Stomach Surgery
According to the Temple Daily News Telegram (Texas), a 45-year-old woman is suing Scott & White Memorial Hospital for medical malpractice alleging negligence resulted in multiple surgeries and a lifelong debilitating condition.
The once active woman has been an inpatient for 740 days since her surgery, she alleges, and she maintains medical expenses have cost her over $2.5 million and could reach over $30 million throughout her life.
Due to abdominal adhesions, her primary care doctors had decided she should never have abdominal surgery unless absolutely necessary, according to her complaint. In 2007, doctors at Scott & White performed abdominal surgery, causing multiple injuries, and resulting in an infection in her blood, she all alleged, and she has since had at least 22 surgeries to repair the damages from that surgery.
