I had a laparoscopic gallballder surgery on Sep 22, 2010 and I had an internal bleeding during the surgery that went unnoticed and I was sent home on the same day. For 10 days I suffered a lot of pain and agony and I could not eat. I thought this was part of the recovery, But on the 9th day I started having fever so we called the hospital and the nurse suggested I go back to the hospital. The next day I went back to the hospital and after some tests they figured I had internal bleeding and they did a procedure to remove the blood that was accumulated in one area in my body and installed a drainage.
Shoudn't the doctor have known during the surgery that I suffered a blood loss and admitted me to the hospital after the surgery instead of sending me home?
