Injury to the bowel or bladder

Hysterectomy operations are much safer now than they were and most people go through the procedure without any problems at all. However, it is still a major surgical procedure and carries with it a certain level of risk.

If you think you may have a medical negligence claim involving a hysterectomy, contact us today.

There are a number of complications that can arise as a result of a hysterectomy. These include the following:

  • Haemorrhage
  • Damage to the bowel and/or bladder during surgery
  • Infection
  • Thrombosis
  • Ovary failure
  • Early menopause
  • Vaginal problems

The most common risks are of injury to the bladder and the bowel. It is not negligent to accidentally make a hole in the bladder or the bowel as long as the surgeon recognises that a hole has been made and repairs this. Successful claims are possible where there has been a failure by the surgeon to recognise the accidental damage and put it right.

In order to make a successful compensation claim, medical evidence will be required. In clinical negligence cases this means that you have to prove that the treatment you received was substandard and fell below that expected of a reasonably competent practitioner.

If you have suffered an injury due to complications of hysterectomy and would like to find out if you can make a clinical negligence claim – Contact us today.
