If I get pregnant will my uterus rupture?

I had a preemie naturally at 28wks 17 months ago and the doctor began ripping my placenta out but I wasn't bleeding that much. This is a teaching hospital and she was having meetings before delivery of what she wanted to do but failed to tell us. Half way through she stopped and left the room and came back 5 min later with a piece of paper for me to sign. If I was bleeding to death why stop. Being drugged up and exhausted I signed. She took me into a room to do a d and c. Afterwards she came out and said she didn't have to do anything because it was right there but she requested 2 ultra sounds and told us to wait a year or never have more kids. She was panicing. She also had packed me with rags but never told anyone that and the head doctor couldnt figure out why she did that. I was discharged from the hospital and my stomach swelled bigger than what I was when I was pregnant with my baby as well as my feet and legs. I went in 17 months later for a check up and everything came back a clean bill of health even had an ultrasound of my uterus but they found a 5mm scar tissue at the top of my uterus. It was then I realized she had punctured it and didn't stitch it or tell anyone. We have been trying for a year to get pregnant but now I wonder if my uterus will rupture because it wasn't properly taken care of. Anyone have any ideas?

See a new doctor that specializes in repairing uterine scarring.  The scar can be removed, but go to a specialist.  Also, see  a lawyer.  The paper you signed under anasthesia will not be valid.
