It is important to tell me when this happened due to the statute of limitations. Please advise when and where the surgery occurred, and when you discovered the foreign object.

Re: medical

There are time periods in Iowa in which a person must bring their medical malpractice case or else they lose their right to bring their case. Please let me know when the surgery occurred and when you discovered that a foreign object was left in your body. Thank you.
