Melody had her gallbladder removed by laser at Guy’s Hospital. Following surgery, she developed jaundice and investigations confirmed grossly abnormal liver function tests and ERCP examinations demonstrated occlusion of the bile duct.

Melody underwent a laparotomy which identified that the hepatic ducts were severely injured, most likely by diathermy. Melody underwent further surgery in the form of a hepatico-jejunostomy and Roux-en-Y procedure.

She remained in hospital for over two months. Melody made a good recovery, but continued to experience abdominal pain, due to adhesions.

The claim was settled in the sum of £38,000, plus costs.
