Man Sues Hospital, Doc: Appendix Left In After Appendectomy


When you have appendicitis, you get an appendectomy. Removal is ultimately the only solution, and, once done, you don't have to worry about it again. Unless you do.

That's what William McCormack of Bronxville, NY learned the hard way. The 43-year-old was doubled over in pain while on vacation in March. Rushed to the hospital, he was given an emergency appendectomy, according to WCBS radio. The odd part thing was that he already had undergone an appendectomy in January 2013 at Lawrence Hospital Center.
