I have just gone under the knife for a hernia repair supposedly for an Aguinal hernia picked up by ultrasound by a Dr at my local hospital. I asked what the options were at the ultrasound to fix it, I was clearly advised the only option was surgery.
When I was opened up, I had asked for a spinal (thankfully) and the surgeon questioned me who had done the ultrasound, as there was def no hernia.. To say he was un-happy is an understatment. Even the duty doctor, had heard about it, and said she was surprised...
Do I have a claim for wrong diagnosis?? and what are the best steps please?? Any advice would be helpful..
Thanks in advance.
