AN insurer has been ordered to pay €10,000 to a woman after a botched operation on her breasts.
After the removal of the bandaging the woman said the implants had not been well positioned in the breast tissue.
The women underwent a number of surgical procedures in an attempt to solve the problem but they were unsuccessful.
When the surgeon who carried out the initial operation later died, a second surgeon informed the woman she would need reconstruction.
She was also told she would have to pay for the surgery and the cost of a surgical team.
The woman subsequently complained to the Spanish equivalent of the patients’ ombudsman who took action on her behalf.
