Lawsuit? m/c ment

Hi there ladies, I recently had to have a 2nd d&c becasue my dr didn't get it all the 1st time. I'm ok with that, I know things happen and for whatever reason, they had to go back in. My parents on the other hand, think DH and I should sue the Dr and the hospital. I'm not so sure. I guess I'm just looking for some advice. Can anyone shed some light on this for me?

I'm so sorry for your loss Heather. Unless you think there was negligence involved I don't think a lawsuit is worth your energy. I was told that a second D and C is not that unusual, especially if you were a bit further along.

Unless you strongly believe there was negligance I think your energy is much better spent healing.

I did write a letter to my hospital patient grievance committee regarding the care I received, maybe that would help you without having to go through the emotional pain of a lawsuit?

Heather - this happened to me as well. Both needing the second D&C as well as my parents flying off the deep end.

Unfortunatley, it happens where two D&Cs are necessary. I don't think that alone would be grounds for a lawsuit.

Take care, hun. I'm so sorry for your loss.
