Surgical Misadventure-Gallbladder Surgery Gone Bad

You walked into the hospital thinking you were having routine surgery. The doctor told you “Everything would be fine.” The nurse wants you to sign informed consent papers, and reassures you that everything will be all right. You come out of the hospital believing that everything was done fine, and now you start to have post-operative complications that do not go away. You call the doctor’s office to get answers and help for your problems, and are told that it is nothing to worry about. You are in pain and your condition worsens, but still your doctor tells you it’s nothing to worry about. What do you do? Chances are you will go to an emergency room to get evaluated. You may have a CAT scan for an MRI as well as a surgical consultation to determine whether your problems are related to the recent surgery. He may require additional surgery.
