Have you suffered because of surgery which has gone wrong?
Every year, hundreds of thousands of people in the UK require surgery for various ailments and conditions. Whilst some people may require surgery for emergency life-threatening conditions, such as heart attacks and appendicitis, some people may also require more routine surgeries.
Although surgeries for non-urgent issues may not need to be done straightaway, in most instances they will be necessary for a patient to live a full and healthy life. For example, whilst gallbladder surgery may not be required urgently, if a patient is suffering from gallstones, surgery may be arranged in order to stop the issue from getting worse.
If you’ve undergone routine surgery in a non-urgent setting, you may have presumed that the risks were lessened or that you would get through surgery without any problems. Whilst this is true in the vast majority of cases, sometimes things go wrong. A simple error or mistake by one of your medical team could leave you in a worse condition than when you were admitted and you may require additional treatment in order to rectify the problem.
