Derry, NH asked in Personal Injury, Health Care Law and Medical Malpractice for New Hampshire

Q: I was having a spinal Cord Stimulater implantation I was put under anesthesia and woke up half way thru tothe doctor cut

I was having a spinal Cord Stimulater implantation I was put under anesthesia but the kind you are in and out of and I told them my concerns about having that type because I’ve had allergic reactions twice before. But they told me I should be fine. I woke up mid surgery and I remember and felt each cut and while I was screaming the Doctor kept saying another cut here, and I could feel each one. The anesthesiologists was saying the medications coming. After what felt like an eternity I’m now being rolled down the hall on the stretcher and my eyes were swollen, just like they do when I’m around cats or dogs to long. I heard the anesthesiologists telling the Nurse I had an allergic reaction. When I asked him what happened he told me he’d tell me later. Witch he never did. The more I came to and the more I started asking questions it seem like they couldn’t get me out of the door fast enough. So fast in fact they never gave me any discharge papers.

I haven’t been able to sleep at night

A: I don't see a question here, but at this point first, being post op, you need medical treatment so without sounding like you are interested in suing anyone you can ask questions but in a very neutral way. Second, if you have PTS, look for an EMDR therapist. Google:

A: I'm sorry for your ordeal. The best place to start could be to contact a New Hampshire med mal attorney to discuss what happened. Many med mal attorneys offer free initial consultations. If an attorney determines there is a basis for a case, they could request your medical records. Good luck
