Palatine, IL asked in Medical Malpractice for Wisconsin

Q: I had hernia surgery March 2017 and have been draining since

Today 7-24-18 I think they got me closed up. Fter my first time the dr. made the comment that he had missed a stitch. But the is no record of him saying that because I got a second opinion about what my options were. Dec. of 17 I had another surgery to fix it still drainage. Two weeks ago he cut me open in the office and stitched it up

A: Missing a stitch would be hopefully reveled by the surgery in December. I'm not hearing you were told much about what is going on. Maybe ask that doctor if it is usual and if not what the causes are etc.

I am assuming that the people you've been seeing are specialists in hernias.

Was amesh involved? Those can cause complications.
