A year ago my doctor told me I needed an immediate hysterectomy. A week later I had a total abdominal hysterectomy and was released in 3 days because everything was normal. Three days later I noticed my upper legs were becoming purple as if I was bruising. Every day the color became worse. After day 5, I started feeling feverish, tired and had abdominal pain. Something was not right. On day 6 my husband took my temperature and it was 103 degrees, rushed me to the hospital that performed the hysterectomy. Ten hours later after an MRI, I was told I had 3 large absesses in my abdominal area and was admitted and put on triple anitbiotics for the next week. I had to have the incision opened to remove the infection and had an open wound for almost 6 weeks. I was told I was bleeding internally after the surgery and it pooled and got infected. Do I have any recourse? Major scar now that has really disfigured me.
