Leeds, AL asked in Medical Malpractice for Alabama

Q: Can I sue a doctor who made me barren, during a simple procedure, in 1984-86? If not, why?

When working with an OBGYN & a fertility specialist in AL, in order to have a baby, nothing seemed to work. I continued to conceive, then miscarry. The OB I stayed with, ended up performing a DNC after a bad miscarrage at home, he found this amusing. He did not order or administer enough anesthesia so I was forced to feel the pain. His response to my screaming, "we're almost done". this Doctor found it quite amusing when he opened my stomach, removed my uterus and my FUNCTIONING ovary, Rendering me sterile in myearly 20's! Causing another major surgery, to remove my bad ovary. I still suffer physical, emotional & mental pain to this day. Sitting in his office after surgery he told me "you could have had children". This MAN sentenced me to a lifetime of living as a barren woman. He stole part of me that cannot be replaced & I'm certain, this was his goal,It wasn't honesty he wanted, it was shock! His actions & words where not MEANT for sympathy, he wanted to see & exp., patients "shock"
