Did you go home with a surgical souvenir?

Your surgical error case may have happened something like this: You went to the hospital to receive what you thought was a routine hernia surgery. Your surgeon said that everything went according to plan and you may feel a little bit of pain for a few days as you continued to heal.

After you went home, you did feel quite a bit of pain, and you patiently waited for it to abate.

The doctor, with a concerned look on his face, asked you to report back to the hospital for immediate surgery.

6 facts about post-traumatic stress disorder after a crash

Parents involved in a car crash when their children are in the vehicle usually worry about the children and push their own pain and injuries aside. While this is normal, it is something that can lead to problems down the road. Parents who are victims of car crashes might end up with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Consider these six facts about this disorder.

The lasting financial and emotional impact of sexual abuse

The sexual abuse of a minor is a terrible crime against the victim and all of society. Often, the people who commit these kinds of crimes are close to the victim's family or are people in positions of authority over the victim, like a coach, babysitter or teacher.

After a child confides in a loved one about the abuse, that person will probably do everything he or she can to help the child move on from the abuse. Unfortunately, the healing process can take years or even be lifelong. It is not uncommon for sexual abuse survivors to develop post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), which can last for years.
