Hysterectomy court action lost

a WOMAN who claimed she has difficulty walking following surgery nearly 10 years ago has lost her High Court action for damages.

Mother-of-two, Mary McNicholas, Cloonkedagh Road, Kiltimagh, Co Mayo, claimed she is in constant pain and has missed out on key family events since she had a hysterectomy operation.

Ms McNicholas sued Andrea Hermann, who at the time was a consultant gynaecologist practising at the Galway Clinic, Doughiska, Galway.

Costs will also be decided at a later stage.
