Common Questions and Answers about Hysterectomy lawsuits

hysterectomy

I had a TOTAL HYSTERECTOMY 25 years ago (pan hysterectomy) I am 68 and have been having a vaginal odor and some clear discharge for about three months. I cannot see the discharge, but asm aware of the odor. Yesterday i bought tampons and inserted one last night. When I removed it this morning, it was bloody with bright red blood. Afer i removed the tampon, I got a bloody discharge. My gynecologist is out of her office untl Monday, so hope to find out something then.
The surgeon just said that nothing could be done about it when it happened after I'd had hysterectomy with anterior and posterior repair. He said that he will not do surgery with the methods they have now so I'm left with this problem that is driving me crazy. I ordered a "truss" that is ridiculous and just cost a lot of wasted money. I ordered a book on exercises that say it takes six months of doing them four times a day when I'm teaching all day, marking and prepping at night.
Usually, at this point, they schedule a hysterectomy in order to get all of the diseased areas out. They might want to consider other options on your surgery. Make SURE you have a GYN/ONC do the surgery. What speciality does the doctor you are seeing practice? You must make sure you get to the specialist so that you can get a doctor with the most experience dealing with this type surgery. Try not to worry Sarah. There are many things your cysts could be besides cancer.
I started seeing a oncologist that suggested I had a knot inside of me and he wanted to remove some sutures that didn't resolve from my hysterectomy and i had a knot. So after surgery things had gotten better but now it's worst than I remember last year. Dr Shin is no longer there to help me get to the right people.
Docs are very concerned with malpractice lawsuits of course, and they want to be able to do what they know is right and needed during the surgery, so they go ahead and get consent for everything conceivable before hand. I also had to consent to receive blood, but I didn't need any.
I am 49, post hysterectomy, on hormone supplement (vivelle patch), no family history of breast cancer. I had an abnormal mammogram showing something close to the chest wall. They could not identify it on the sonogram. I had follow up mammograms, and although it was clearer in one view than the other, it could be seen in all views. It was rated birads-4. I went for a "dry run" on the stereotactic mamotome, and they found they could not get a good enough view from two angles.
The 3rd most fatal disease in North America and the Top most fatal disease, when combined with Nosocomial Disease (Hospital acquired Disease). My understanding of this case. Hysterectomy. Total Hysterectomy???? When no symptoms are present???. Without an Endometrial Biopsy??
She says it's just follow up because of the night sweats, no big deal. My mom had a hysterectomy due to uterine cancer, she also had pre-cancer cells in an ovary, and vaginal cancer. She had part of her labia removed. Should I be worried? How aggressive should I be? Could this be cancer?
Is anyone else seeking legal representation for serious complications following trans vaginal mesh implantation for POP, specific to anterior/posterior repairs, hysterectomy, etc. : vag. erosion, bleeding, hematoma, USI, fecal incontinence, pain, infection, organ perforation, bowel evacuation disorders, discharge, re ocurrence of prolapse of one or all organs, i.e., apical collapse, procidentia, cystocele, rectocele?
What is becoming evident to me is that with the aging populations and greater number of women having Hysterectomy and Oophorectomy, the greater the statistic for women presenting with ORS. Like a diagnoses of PCOs, women find themselves seeking help through a process of ellimination spanning painful amount of time, expense, and at the minimum five doctors. I wonder if this is an area where there is some fear from doctors that patients will seek legal remedy.
I have an appointment with my specialist on Monday, and if he point blank refuses to discuss biopsy of right ovary and not performing total hysterectomy - I am open to a partial hysterectomy due to the thickening and calcification, but i see no reason to entirely remove it and my cervix if it's not cancerous, then I will consult the second specialist as to whether I should cancel my surgery.
My hysterectomy is on Moday. I checked yesterday and I could have sworn that I had enough but it turns out that I was looking at the wrong bottle. I have been out of it and should have made somebody else make sure I had enough, but I didn't. My husband just called the clinic and there is only one Dr. there on Sat. and he won't refill my pills.He knows my sister and came right out and said that I was either being like my sister (hooked on pills) or I am trying to get the pills for her.
The worst part was the narcotics they kept giving me which made me sick, even with anti-nausea med. I had a hysterectomy in 2010 and did fine on ibuprofen, so I refused narcotics near the end of my hospital stay. I had the catheter removed and got up to pee a couple of times before I left the hospital. I was constipated for 5 days but docusate, fiber and lots of water cured that. I have been up and around doing little things around the house.
Is that true there is nothing they can do about endometriosis inside the uterus, besides a hysterectomy? 4. That my nerves sense any touch to my vaginal area as pain, and mentioned a pain medication for that. Do you know about that medication? He said I would start on the Lupron shot first. 5. I just got my menstruation cycle yesterday and I have heard that can make your pain worse. Do you know what that is? He mentioned something about blood bleeding into a muscle that was bruised...
I too had an endometrial ablation in 12/05. Had the normal discharge for weeks to follow. Periods got much much lighter, but still get one every month. Over the last year, the monthy cramps started to come back. About every other month I am experiencing lower abdominal and right-sided pain that is getting worse and worse while not having my period. Then when I do have it, the cramps are pretty severe again!. I have had several doctor visits with my primary care dr and my OB-GYN dr.
I am 56, married and have had 5 vaginal births and had a hysterectomy w/bladder tuck 11 years ago. I have rheumatoid arthritis and take a considerable amount of medication for this condition. I now have surgery scheduled for February 4th for sacrocolpopexy w/sling and rectocele repair via Da Vinci robotic by a urogynocoligist. I have a grade 3 prolapse. What can I expect post surgery? Very Painful? Will sex be better (alot of discomfort now)?
I don't think this lady's daughter got good treatment regarding her uterine pregnancy. But lawsuits and their success hinge on a lot of things, and in this case the medical intervention she did get saved her life by dealing effectively with the ectopic, plus nobody can say whether she would have had pain and cramping and such with her uterine pregnancy even if they hadn't been short with her when she called with problems and questions.
I had a hysterectomy 4 years ago and have been on estrogen since then. From day one I had trouble sleeping and have also been on a sleeping pill since then - trying many but finally settling on Lunesta. I also have terrible allergies - I give myself a shot once a week and take the following medicines - Zyrtec D twice daily, Advair inhaler - twice daily (250/50) - Singulair (at night) - and do breathing treatments with Xopenex or Albuteral along with an albuteral inhaler as necessary.
My tumor was small and except for one very tiny fragment (why I am a Stage III) it was contained to the ovary. I had a total hysterectomy, went through the chemo, the bald is beautiful moments and came out the other side feeling quite blessed. Now I speak at different events and am active in getting out the word to all women that OVARIAN CANCER is the most lethal of all gynecological cancers.
Every surgeon will deny the fact that the surgical clips cause problems because they would be setting themselves up for lawsuits. I know my problem was that clip. My medical records are currently with a lawyer as well. I have to call him in a week to find out the status. I believe the laproscopic g/b surgery has not been studied long enough to know the long term effects. There are so many things that can happen.
How much if anything do you know about these lawsuits against the manufacturers of these products? Also what questions should I be asking when I go to get second opinion form this other doctor?
(which is when the symptoms came back full blast) I don't recall being sick before that since 2009 after my hysterectomy. I would get the occasional headache which usually would resolve on its own, sometimes I would take a nap and be fine. I am going to ask to be tested for Hashimoto's and an ultra sound. I believe my next appt. with the endo is next month. Are you still having symptoms?
Does anyone have any suggestions or ideas as to how I can get some help. I also have an other problem, I had a hysterectomy on May 31, 2005. Right after the surgery, I started breaking out in my gential area, the doctor said it was just hair bumps from when they shaved me, but It has not gone away!!! I went to the ER for a CAT scan, and ended up getting blood work, this is when they diagnosed the Hep C. Well I figured kill to birds with one stone as they say. Right?
I have had a total hysterectomy. These were found on a routine ultrasound for gallbladder. Gallbladder was normal. Thanks.
They figure you should've figured it out at 18 or something Bombay. The lawsuits were so long ago I don't know if there is anything at all that can be done now. Especially since it wasn't very publicized and not too many people were informed of the situation going on with the law suit. But what can we do? Nothing, except visit our doctors and hope our insurance is good enough now I suppose.
biopsy on leg had to be put out cost to insurance,,2k,,, my hysterectomy was 35k but I had the DaVinci Robotic assisted,,husbands trip to er for kidney stones $ 400. all they did was shot him up with pain meds...ridiculous. My father in laws quad by pass ten years ago 200k...I think socialised med would bring these examples of outlandish prices down for the gov, Im just a bit worried about wait time,,,Im not a patient person if I need a surgery I want it soon,.etc...
I think the asbestos and cigarette industry has admitted their products are harmful and many lawsuits have been litigated with favorable results; not that I think they're even in the same category as medicine. Anyway...if it weren't so late, others would chime in here. Maybe there are some bats around...Domino?
If it were me with those problems, I would have opted for a hysterectomy, maybe keeping just the cervix and one ovary, for hormones, but it would depend on the size and type of cysts the ovaries produce. I am not suggesting this is your solution, but it appears your repro system may not be able to be "normal".
I would like more information on any class action lawsuits etc.
