due to an appendicitis malpractice

I need serious help and will appreciate any advice. A 21 yr old male had a appendicitis removal almost a year ago and ever since then his health has been deteriorating. He hasn't had a normal bowel movement in almost a year, always has watery and some times gelly like stool. His rectal,anus,stomach and where his appendix operation was done hurts severely almost all the time and he's constipated a lot. He has trouble going to the bathroom and has to stay on insoluble fiber but even that doesn't help him much. His heart rate drops, he has fainted many times and he reacts pretty slow to things! On the hospital paper work it appears as if it had been a normal appendix removal procedure but in less than a month after his surgery he had to go to the emergency room because he felt very ill. They did xrays and found a cut in his intestine! were thinking the surgeon cut him while surgery and didn't write that down on the paper work. Do you think he contracted an infection? and if so what should I tell his doctor to test him for? He has had fever up to 102! and it seems as if his body is trying to fight something because he was an athletic healthy young man. He had an endoscopy and colonoscopy done and everything appeared normal. I think they had checked for cancer. I forgot to mention that he pukes blood sometimes and has rectal bleeding!!
The doctors seem to be taking it slow with him and he doesn't have any time to wait. They don't know what he could have!!!!:mad::confused:He has private insurance now but didn't at the time of his surgical procedure, any advice would be great!
thanks :(
