My mother-in-law got gastric bypass a few years ago. She was perfectly fine until recently. A couple days ago her belly button started rupturing with blood and puss; in addition, she has also gotten sick. She went to a doctor and they said the surgeon who preformed the gastric bypass stiched her stomach back up with the wrong stiches. I believe the reason she has recently gotten sick could be due to an infection from the stiches.
Would this be a legitimate law suit even though the gastric bypass surgery happened a few years ago? Moreover, the original doctor who preformed the surgery no longer practices in Alabama, he actually lost his license.
