Can I sue my doctor for malpractice for not informing me of an infection?

Question Details: I scheduled an appointment with my primary doctor back over 1 1/2 year ago because I had severe abdominal paint. She brushed it off like it was no big deal and did nothing for me. Fast forward to last year, I met a new surgeon and it turned out that I had endometriosis and had to get a hysterectomy because of it. Last month, I had a wellness check-up with my primary doctor and she had asked why I had the surgery. I told her and she says that it was because I had an infection from an IUD that I had a few years ago. She just told me this and looking back in my medical history online there is no record of the infection nor did she prescribe any antibiotics or anything of that sort. Can I sue her?
