Q: Can I sue for the nexplanon implant giving me serious problems and doctor allowing student to touch me during procedure
I have had the nexplanon birth control implant since 2017,it has given me serious side effects. I was wondering if I can sue for the damages it has done to me. When I was getting the implant the doctor asked me if a student could come in and watch the procedure, I declined and she insisted that the student watched. She said not to worry and that the student would not touch me. The doctor allowed the student to touch my implant while it was in my arm during the middle of my procedure,she popped it back out of my arm and the doctor had to put it back in. The implant has caused me several problems including mental problems which made me go insane. I am constantly bleeding for months at a time. I believe I have an ovarian cyst. I am also going blind which I believe is due to the implant.I was not aware of these types of sides effects. I have a young child and it has made it very difficult to take care of her. I also had to stop working due to the complications it has given me.
