Notre Dame’s Coach Brings Malpractice Case

Charlie Weis, head football coach at Notre Dame, sued two doctors in connection with injuries he received following gastric bypass surgery.  The trial in underway in Boston.

He alleges that he suffered internal bleeding after the procedure and that his doctors failed to promptly correct it.  The doctors say that internal bleeding is a known, disclosed risk of the procedure and that they did not move more aggressively to correct the condition because of the risk of pulmonary embolus.

Weis was in a coma for two weeks following the incident.  I cannot find any article that indicates what long-term problems, if any, he is having as a result of the alleged error.
