A: There wasn't a question here, but your post remains open for three weeks. If you're wondering whether you have the grounds for a case, a good first step toward answering that question would be to contact a Kansas med mal attorney and discuss the matter in greater detail. If an attorney felt that you had a case that was viable to pursue, they could request your hospital records and review them with a medical professional.
