Medical malpractice occurs when a doctor is negligent and you really haven't provided enough information to know for sure that there was negligence in this case.  Negligence requires 1) a duty 2) a breach of that duty 3) cause in fact 4) proximate cause of 5) injury.  This sounds like it's going to be sort of a basic negligence question hinging on whether there was a breach of the doctors duty toward you.  It certainly wouldn't hurt to talk to a local attorney, s/he'll be better able to make a determination about possibility of success and value of the claim.
