    Post: splenectomy result of surgeon error?

    Posted by rick on 11/29/10

    My wife went in to donate a kidney to her sister. During
    the procedure, her spleen was "torn" and the bleeding could
    not be stopped so a splenectomy was performed. Instead of 3
    days in hospital, minor scarring and full imunities, she
    spent 6 days in the hospital with significant pain, a 12"
    scar down her belly and reduced imunity for life. My
    question is should i seek counsel for this or is this just
    the risk of donating a kidney?
