My foot was fractured in 2017 , I underwent surgery on friday(fisrt week of Nov 2017)and a titanium screw was placed in my fifth metatarsal of right foot.

After the surgery I was sent home .

The next day Saturday eve the numbness in my toes started to fade and I started getting intense pain.

I had to rush to emergency since it was weekend and the doctors office was unavailable and got to know that my doctor had failed to mention and prescribe me the pain medication narcos .

It happened in 2017 Nov .

Can I sue my doc for this ?
