Warner Robins, GA asked in Personal Injury and Medical Malpractice for Georgia

Q: 39y/o without my consent, a doctor put saline breast implants in me. Can I receive compensation for pain and suffering?

When I say without my consent, he told me there wasn't any way he could put implants in me. I was measured and marked for the augmentation, when I woke up from surgery, I couldn't breathe, he had put the implants in. I have irregular Heart rhythm (controlled by medication and not related to MVP) DDD, Scoliosis, and much more related to having these in. No one told me I was supposed to have them checked every 10 years. I was never given a card with the number on them as many other women have. I only have a copy of an operative report that tells what kind he used. In 2005 I began to have physical symptoms, Trigeminal Neuralgia Headaches, migraine headaches, 3 disc in my cervical neck are bad, no to any car accidents. The heart problems started 3 years after I had these in. Anxiety, depression, suicidal thoughts right after they were put in. Is it too late to sue for pain and suffering?
