A woman has denied a $50,000 settlement from the Air Force as she filed a $1M medical malpractice suit after discovering doctors left a laparotomy towel inside her for five years from a C-section.

According to the Daily Mail, Angie Perry filed the suit after learning that the towel caused her to suffer from chronic pain in her abdomen.

The suit said she underwent a C-section at the Yokota US Air Force base outside of Tokyo in 2013 and the doctor who performed the procedure was a brand new employee for the military base. ‘This surgeon just received her medical license in 2013 to become an MD & Was NOT A surgeon yet. The system is broken – And there’s nothing that stops them from doing harm.’

‘There is no doubt in my mind if that towel wasn’t found, it would’ve killed me. At one point, the surgeon couldn’t stop the bleeding and things got a little frantic in the surgery room where the nurses were pleading with the surgeon to let them go ask another surgeon to come and assist. ‘I thought for certain I was going to die right there.’ she added.

Perry had to wear diapers after losing control of her bladder and saw 27 doctors for three years as she consistently suffered from chronic pain. She added that the experience caused her relationships with her husband and children to be strained.

‘I was getting into fights with my husband because he was so angry and believed I turned into a hypochondriac. He didn’t understand why I was addicted to going to the doctor … I had never experienced pain like this before.’




Additionally, 17 more people were suffering from similar cases where doctors left objects in their bodies after surgery.
