Starting point is this is simply a surgical complication and there is nothing to do legally. That stated, if you have concerns, you may want to get with a malpractice lawyer and get referral for a specialist you can hire for a second opinion and to review the records. This may cost you several thousand dollars for such a review - but many people choose to do so simply for peace of mind.
