Did You Sustain a Bowel Injury Following Your Abdominal Surgery? Davis & Davis Can Help.
When it comes to the gallbladder and other types of bowel and abdominal surgeries, doctors are required to “run the bowel,” or examine every part of the intestine to ensure that there are no tears, holes, or perforations before closing you up. This is a normal part of the procedure to prevent peritonitis, a serious and possibly fatal post-surgical infection.
And while sometimes a nicked bowel cannot be helped and may not be enough to demonstrate medical malpractice, surgeons are required to perform due diligence and look out for symptoms of infection. Failure to follow through on this and carefully monitor a patient’s recovery may result in injury or death from sepsis if nothing is done. The longer the condition goes untreated, the more hazardous the possible outcome.
If you have been injured as a result of bowel injury following surgery, we urge you to get in touch with a Harris County, Texas medical malpractice lawyer as soon as possible.
