An undiagnosed burst appendix is a serious medical condition. Sharp abdominal pain, nausea, abdominal swelling, fever and constipation, all are symptoms of appendicitis. Yet, physicians can miss the diagnosis. Instead these symptoms are mistaken for the flu or a stomach virus. If you believe your doctor made clear errors in failing to promptly diagnose appendicitis, and you suffered harm as a result, consult an attorney. Things to look for include: dismissing as unimportant your symptoms, not conducting a complete medical exam, not ordering appropriate tests, or giving you an entirely different diagnosis, when you actually had clear signs of appendicitis.
If you are concerned that your doctor failed to properly diagnosis your condition, and a serious medical problem has resulted, please call and speak with an experienced attorney at our office.
