Amy Herbst, a former opera singer, said she was forced to give up her singing after the surgery made ​​her unable to sing without farting.

Herbst said she is suing the federal government for a botched surgery she received after she gave birth.

The injury was caused by the Blanchfield Army Community Hospital in Fort Campbell, Kentucky, according to the lawsuit.

The 33-year-old former singer said that a nurse ordered the procedure in the hospital, and it was done without her consent.

The procedure damaged her reproductive and digestive systems. The lawsuit seeks $2.5 million for negligence, as well as pain, suffering, shame, and a loss of income.

The woman said that after leaving the hospital, she began experiencing periodic stool leakage and excessive flatulence.
