Do you need to make a ‘no win, no fee’ County Durham compensation claim after losing a kidney?
When people suffer serious injuries, they can sometimes require surgery. Whilst surgery can sometimes be scheduled for a later date, if they have suffered internal injuries or bleeding, the surgery may need to be carried out immediately.
If, for example, you have suffered some form of impact, such as in a transport related accident, you could have suffered damage to your organs. This can cause severe pain and can easily be life-threatening so swift medical care is absolutely essential.
In some cases, surgeons may be able to repair the damage and stem the bleeding. Providing the repair work holds, you should go on to make a full recovery and you may not require any additional surgery. However, in some instances, this simply isn’t possible. If the damage is too extensive, it may not be possible to repair it. This may mean undergoing an emergency transplant or having one of your organs removed.
If one of your kidneys has been affected or damaged and surgeons are unable to repair it, they may be forced to remove it. Fortunately, people can live a full life with just one kidney so this, in itself, won’t necessarily be life-threatening. Most patients find that the side effects and consequences of the treatment vary depending on the area which has been affected. If you need to have your spleen removed, for example, you may need to take a range of medication for the rest of your life to try and protect your body from unwanted infections. As the spleen normally cleans the blood of toxins, you may need to rely on medication to do this if your spleen has to be removed.
Having a kidney or an organ removed or replaced can be a big operation and you may need a significant amount of recovery time. Many people find that they need to take weeks or months off work afterwards so you may find that your finances are affected, as well as your health.
