My question involves medical malpractice in the state of: South Carolina
I recently had to have the saphenous veins in both legs ablated by laser therapy. Smaller varicose veins were later closed by sclerotherapy. On my first visit with the vascular surgeon, I cautioned him that I may be sensitive to sclero solution and discussed it in detail. The surgeon assured me that his solution was comparable to sugar water, and that if he used anything stronger, he would do a test injection first. On my last visit, he switched and used a stronger solution without my knowledge that left approiximately 8 large painful ulcers that have yet to heal. He offered no treatment other than suggesting Emu oil twice daily. I consulted a dermitologist who put me on an antibiotic immediately and prescribed other medicated ointments. It is now healing but the dermitologist said I will have scars. I am sure I signed a document giving him permission to do the procedure, which all doctors require, but since he did not do a test injection as he said he would, do I have grounds for a malpractice suit?
