My question involves medical malpractice in the state of: kentucky
Im 29 years old
I had heart surgery in January and during the surgery the heart lung bypass machine failed to pump blood to my left leg. The heart surgeon Told this to five of my family members after they found no pulse in my leg after the surgery. This resulted in compartment syndrome. I was cut on both sides of my lower leg then also on my thigh to relieve the pressure. This resulted In nerve damage and now 6 months later i still cant move my ankle or toes. However a nerve conduction study was done and says that my nerves are still alive but it could take up to another year for them to regenerate.
Ontop of that a nurse while i was in the icu put calcium through a regular IV in my hand and it infiltrated causing a very bad chemical burn on my hand and a hole in the top of my hand where the IV was located. my fingers are crippled From this and the hand specialist I am seeing doesn't believe I will ever regain regular function in the hand of course this is my dominant hand.
