My name is Larry Waldrop, and I am 60 years old. Last August I admitted myself into the hospital to have a surgery due to stage two colon cancer. Instead of the predicted two to three hour's I was told that I would spend in recovery it turned into more like five. When I got to my room of course I was in utter distress, due to the discomfort and pain which I expected. However, during the night I was taken in for another emergency surgery because I had sustained blood poisoning some time during the night. I spent the next week and a half fighting for my life, in a comma in their ICU before I showed any signs of recovery. After I regained consciousness I was assigned a room in the hospital's cancer ward,. Shortly after I was transferred to a long term nursing care facility, where eventually experience the amputation of three of my toes. I believe with all earnestness that the surgeon made a gross mistake administering the procedure. As a result of four surgeries, including a tracheostomy I am left with two types of stoma, an unsteady gait, all kinds of stress, and worries for what quality of life I have left. I would like to pursue an malpractice case against the surgeon, hospital, and skilled nursing facility but I having a hard time located legal representation. I need help!!!
