Conyers, GA asked in Medical Malpractice for Georgia

Q: Do I need a lawyer? I had a. C section in april of this year and had some complication with full placenta previa.

And after surgey it got infected and i was back in the hospital due to abscess rupture on my uterus and burst through the skin where the scar is at. So after about 7 CAT scans and seeing the pockets of abscess and puss. The doctors told me it would heal and they dont wanna open me back up and clean it out so this wont keep happening. And now its October and im still having the same issue with abscesses and they are bursting through the skin and leaving open holes in the skin where the scars are. Is this normal or do i need counsel.
