Sponge Left Inside Patient for Seven Years Leaves Pain, Suffering and No Relief

Posted by Holly Haines on April 08, 2015

A woman who has suffered for seven years after a surgical sponge was left inside of her after a C-section has been left with huge hospital bills and continuing medical issues.

The sponge was finally removed in 2012 but resulted in the loss of one of her fallopian tubes and an ovary as well as $50,000 in medical bills.

Unfortunately, she is unable to hold the hospital accountable for the surgical error because the six year time period in which she could have filed a medical malpractice lawsuit has passed.

The fact that the sponse was not detected by a CT scan for seven years leaves her with no justice and the emotional and financial burder of a surgical error.
