Perforation of the bowel during vaginal repair –  £30,000

Mrs Lyons underwent surgery for anterior and posterior vaginal repair. Post-operatively she complained of significant abdominal discomfort and was unable to get out of bed. She had another exploratory operation during which it was discovered that her bowel had been damaged during the earlier surgery.

We pursued a claim for Mrs Lyons on the basis that the perforation of the bowel was caused by inadequate surgical technique.
