After Surgery Complications

Any surgery has risks, but some complications that arise after surgery could have been prevented by your health care professional. When these instances occur, you could have a malpractice case. It is essential to stay aware of everything going on in your body after surgery. Then, inform your doctor of everything going on and be descriptive. If your doctor doesn’t listen and doesn’t give you proper treatment and it causes an infection or work sepsis, then speak to a lawyer at Castel & Hall, LLP.

Persistent pain can also be a dangerous sign after surgery. It can indicate that something went wrong or an infection in your body. Take care, inform your doctor of every pain or discomfort, and keep track of any discoloration in your skin. If your doctor ignores your concerns and doesn’t give you proper care and it leads to an infection, it can cause dangerous complications.

A preventable complication is a fatal infection. Surgeons should take care to give you proper antibiotics and medication after surgery. If they fail to do so, it can result in a dangerous disease that can make your condition worse than before. If an infection goes unnoticed and untreated, it can lead to sepsis. Sepsis happens when an infection you already have triggers a chain reaction throughout your body, which leads to sepsis, most often starting in the lung, urinary tract, skin or gastrointestinal tract. Sepsis can rapidly lead to tissue damage, organ failure and death without timely treatment.
