Representatives for Bobby Jenks, pitcher for the Red Sox, are discussing whether or not he will take legal action against doctors after an error occurred while he was in surgery in December.
Jenks recently told reporters that the he went into surgery at Mass. General on Dec. 12 in order to remove two back spurts. Jenks also had two other back spurts that were not supposed to be touched. One of these back spurts was partially removed and an incision was left in his spine.
Two and half weeks later, Jenks began to wake up with painful headaches he described as if being hit by a ‘sledgehammer.’ By the 30th of the month, the pain was so bad he went to the hospital where he had emergency surgery.
