Celebrex **** taken in 2006 for knee surgery, that I just learned that it might have been the reason for my 2008 bleeding ulcer. Do I have a case?

Out of nowhere on February 14, 2008, not more than 10 minutes after arriving to work, I pasted out and vomited blood all over my office. I was taken to the hospital and had three bleeding ulcers, which I had a gastro procedure done.

Your question is not that simple.  Did you have a diagnosis from a doctor that the two are linked? Did you read about a similar case or lawsuit? Have you consulted with a medical malpractice attorney? Try the California State Bar, try www.attorneypages.com, try searching for med mal attorneys experienced in such cases.  Were you prone to gastrointestinal issues before?
