"My tubes were tied against my wishes and without consent"

I had a planned caesarean in 2011 and had earlier decided not to have my tubes tied and withdrew consent. The doctor who performed my surgery made me feel so small and insignificant and, in my opinion went so far as to insult me because I had changed my mind.
I found out not quite a year later that my tubes were tied. As to how they were tied or clamped or cut, no one seems to know. The only reason I found out was because of the excruciating pain I was in when I ovulated. I now suffer insomnia, irregular incredibly heavy periods, ovary pain, acne, intense itching, constipation, mood swings and cannot have any more children. I was 28 when this happened.
I tried to complain, I felt it was all ignored, I asked whether or not my tubes had been tied, that was denied. I'm scarred for life because of 1 doctor. 1 doctor who I believe had absolutely no right to do what they did.
