It has been reported that around 500,000 people in the United Kingdom suffer from bunions. These highly painful swellings in the joints are only amplified when weight is placed upon them. That is why so many people turn to surgery to have the bunion removed. But what happens when the surgery does not go according to plan and the solution ends up causing more problems? Roughly 98,000 people per year are victims of surgical malpractice and negligence each year. If you are reading this article, the odds are you are one of those people.
Is it malpractice or common recovery pain?
If you are experiencing pain after your bunion surgery which is keeping you from walking, working, or performing regular tasks, you are advised to seek the diagnosis of a practitioner, medical staff, or doctor to assess the best course of treatment. As every surgery and individual is different, it is important to identify whether you are experiencing typical after surgery pains or if there has been malpractice and neglect. Do not be afraid to get a second or third opinion as to your current state. Your health comes first and you should get the answers that you deserve.
If you find that the pain you are experiencing has been caused by misdiagnosis of an issue with the surgery, failed treatment after surgery, or that there were complications during the surgery which are not typical and has caused additional damage, you may have grounds for a Bunion Surgery negligence or malpractice claim.
Where most bunion surgeries are dependent upon the spot where the bunion was removed, there are other considerations to keep in mind. As your feet affect the rest of the body, if you are now experiencing pain in the lower back or hips, it could be a result from the surgery. It has been proven that if your feet are not functioning at 100% then your back may develop pains and misalignment.
You can also develop severe headaches and other conditions from having to walk improperly. If ANY new conditions arise after your bunion surgery, please consult a professional to see the cause. Sometimes the cause is from the medication, at other times it is a result of the surgery. Whichever the case may be, you are entitled to have a safe recovery free from unnecessary pain.
Also, if it is brought to your attention that a medical staff member, practitioner, or doctor which was a part of your surgery is under investigation for malpractice for not following common practices and procedures of bunion surgery, you are strongly advised to have the area on this the surgery was conducted inspected by a professional to determine if the operation was done properly.
Typical signs that you may be a victim of Bunion Surgery Negligence
After your surgery, you are given a general timeline for recovery. Usually, doctors will give you this timeline prior to surgery, but at times they may do so afterwards. If you find that the recovery time is extensive, you may need to see if there were any issues/ complications during surgery.
If you have started to notice similar pains in the area where the bunion used to be and that pain has continued to grow in intensity, then you may be a victim of malpractice. If this is the case, you are advised to seek treatment immediately to keep from further harm to that area.
A clear sign that things were not conducted according to a professional standard would be if the bunion returns to the spot where the surgery occurred. Where this is extremely rare, it does happen. If you are experiencing the same pain which you were having before the surgery, have your foot inspected for the development of new bunions as well as to ensure that the old bunion was completely removed.
In the most unfortunate event that a family member or a loved one has died while having bunion surgery, you most likely have a case.
Negligence and malpractice claims have a timeline and so if you are the victim of Bunion malpractice or neglect, you need to file a claim and get the ball rolling as soon as possible to ensure that your claim is heard. If you are filing a claim on behalf of a family member or loved one, you will need to do so quickly as well.
