am stuck in a ****y hospital ward right now writing this on my phone.

I had a shoulder surgery about 4 weeks ago, and for first 3 weeks seemed to go ok. Then one day last week woke up in agony not being able to move my right arm from the shoulder.

I went back to the hospital that did it under nhs and told them what i was feeling including fever constantly twice, and even seen the surgeon who did the op, he gave me more pain killers told me to go home nothing was wrong.

2days later i took myself to another hospital cos was just in agony. The stuck some huge mofo needle into my shoulder joint and withdrew some puss and said it was probably infected. I was admitted there and am still here on morphine and iv anti biotics waitin for test results still in agony and told i will probably need another surgery to take out the infection!

Worse than that seems like i'm on the messed up ward.0its like a circus aint had any sleep and they aren't really very nice here:(

Is this just one of them things? Or should i be asking for more answers as to why i was sent home saying nothin was wrong? Oh i'm bored also lol

If its infected from when they operated Jase they should have some explaining to do, of course they all p!ss in the same pot, so your as likely to get them admitting it, as I am to be shaggin Vida Guerra tonight...

under the law of delict - Profesional liability- when a person in a professional capacity (lawyer, doctor) there is a contract between the client and the professional and any losses that occur can be remedied through this contract. In addition a separate case of delict can arise.
To claim a loss from the professional the client must prove that the professional has breached his duty of care. Whereby the action taken was not, that would be taken my any reasonable professional, in the same circumstances.


if they have ****ed u up by doing something that a normal suregon would not have done then u have a claim.

They'll assess your case and tell you whether you have grounds for a claim & won't charge you if they feel there's no case to answer.

Hope the antibiotics sort you out soon, sounds nasty :(

Getting an infection in a joint post op is hardly the stuff of Medical Malpractice.
It's not particularly common (thankfully) and probably fairly unpleasant (unfortunately) but I would imagine that you would have been advised pre operation in the small print that there are potential complications to any invasive surgery. Unfortunately sh*t happens :( Hope it gets better quickly.

thanks for all your replies, positive and negative..i think the point is that. i went back to the surgeon who did it complainin of fever and not being able to move my arm and being in agony he had told me nothing was wrong! And to go home come back in 2 weeks. Then 2 days after that i was admitted elsewhere in a poor state for the same complaint. I'm not really that fussed i just want it put right but just wondered the legal status of this if any

Thanks

My wife was rushed back into hospital after the birth of our son :goingmad:

Fever, extreme pain including chest :thumbdown They took some swabs and bloods and then issued i.v. antibiotics..

Strange thing is when we asked for results they said she had an infection but they couldn't tell what type as the antibiotics had wiped most of it out :rotz:

Clever drugs! as they were given after the swabs and bloods were taken :shake:

It's widespread in hospitals and they will do all they can to cover it up :frust:

MRSA was a contributing factor to my grandfathers death in 2001 but they refused to put it on the death certificate, thus making it very hard to seek compensation..

At the end of the day no amount of money was gonna help bring him back so we let it go for the sake of my nan.

Anyway get well soon Jase :smthumbup

well the surgeon who did it showed his face today, hes like a whirlwind, here and gone within 3 mins. Said he still thinks nothing is wrong but as they got something out of it may as well stay on the iv antibiotics till thurs.

He then also said he now suspects frozen shoulder which when i read about it seems almost life changing and a major **** up considering its in my dominant shoulder, so am quite worried now. Seeing the physio tomorrow, will have somethin to say for sure if thats how it turns out:( not feelin so good now

I suffered from frozen shoulder a few years back when I was desk bound 7 hours a day. I had a couple of injections at the GPs which didn't help at all (think they were steroids but it was a while ago & I can't remember for sure), then exercises recommended by a physio and used a tens machine and ibuprofen when it was really bad but the cure was giving up the desk job. Not been troubled for 6 years now.

Has your doctor considered a possible torn rotator cuff?
