Asked in Medical Malpractice for Mississippi

Q: Can I sue for hospital attracted ecoli infection 2 days after surgery? 3 months later im still recovering.

I have had to be lanced back open 3x to let it drain. I had a serious colon sectomy and emergency partial hysterectomy on nov 28 2016 and I'm still running fever, throwing up and hurting. I go see the surgeon every week for follow up. They also wouldn't send home health bc no insurance, to clean my wound I had 32 staples and a 7" open incision for it to drain,i had to pack gauze down in too keep it open.
