Following the operation she suffered with heavy and persistent bleeding and developed a womb infection, for which she underwent 3 courses of antibiotics. She was finally diagnosed as suffering from retained products of conception in her womb and had surgery under general anaesthetic to clean out the womb approximately 7 weeks later.
As a result of the infection, she was unable to breast feed and felt that she missed out on sharing that bond with her newborn baby.
Liability was admitted in full by the defendant hospital and our client recovered the sum of £5,000 by way of compensation.
