    Hi there,

    In 2013 I was admitted to a hospital in Spain for emergency surgery. Still to this day, Australian doctors are unsure what the Spanish surgeon did and still to this day, I suffer many illnesses and pain from the bad job of the Spanish surgeon and his medical negligence.

    I was discharged with no follow up or any papers. I was later told I could have a hefty hospital bill or I may not because it was an emergency and I'm a EU citizen. How do I find out? I have no medical papers. I don't know if my insurance covers it or had expired, and if I go back to Spain, would I get stopped at the border?

    Hi, I would contact the hospital that you had the surgery at. And, in terms of the alleged medical negligence, you would have to pursue any claim in that regard in the country where it occurred.
