Thank you for the note. The cataract removal is done under local anesthesia whereby the dr applied a needle injection under the eye. In my mum's case, the needle was punctured too deeply that it enters the eye ball and injured the blood vessels and nerves. This caused pain, redness, and swelling of the eye. Due to this complication, the actual procedure took 2 hrs instead of a 20mins.
The dr is not very helpful and I felt that she just try to keep us away. She also raised her voice while talking to us. What an attitude she has when she actually is the one who created the accident.
Thinking that I have the right as a carer, I went to the admin of the hospital to make a complaint after that.
Would appreciate if I could get some lawyer advice about this case.
Speak to another specialist and seek a second opinion and preferably don't mention its for a possible negligence suit. These doctors protect each other. Only after you know the full story from a second opinion, then only decide.
Its normal Dennis, for us to feel angry and aggravated when we feel the op of our loved ones go awry. Calm down and seek a second opinion and bring your Mum go see another specialist first.
My late mum done have cataract in SS2 and the doc said simple process only-paid RM1800 -receipt issued and fix the next day for operation.Half way to the op.one of the vien was accidentely cut and bleeding occurs.He just close up the eye and refund us the RM1800 and exchange back the receipt.In the end mu mum was blind on one eye.We consult various ENT doc.Nothing can save the eye
