Cincinnati, OH asked in Personal Injury for Ohio

Q: do I have a case?

I recently had pilonidal cyst surgery to have two abscesses removed on my right butt cheek. The surgeon went in and removed a cyst, but left the abscesses on my butt cheek. She at first denied the area and said it was my anxiety and tissue damage. after going to get a CAT scan and getting with my primary care physician, it has been confirmed that the abscesses are still there and one is concurrent to pilonidal cyst disease. The surgeon even even stitched right along the abscess that I wanted removed has portrayed me as an anxiety, but then after finding out that I’m investigating, she goes in and changes statements in my chart, adding in that there might be a cyst there, but it wasn’t in the surgical side at the time. at the end of the day, I went in to get something removed and it is still there and she is portraying me as anxiety to hide the fact that she missed and didn’t get everything out

A: An Ohio attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for a week. It could depend on whether the surgeon violated a duty of care owed to you, and the extent and permanence of your damages. Abscesses can cover a wide range of results, not all of which are necessarily the result of surgical error. If you're able to arrange a free initial consultation with attorneys, that might be the best way to answer your question. Good luck
