You expected the doctor to help you, not make you worse. Now you're in more pain than before, yet you're still getting the bill. Something is very wrong with this picture!

When a medical mistake in Missouri causes you to miss work, you have every right to sue for the money you would have made during that time.

If you were under the care of a health professional, chances are you did not feel quite up to par when you entered the building. However, when their mistakes cause you additional pain and suffering, you deserve compensation for that undue pain.
If you expect to be dealing with side effects of the mistake for months or years to come, the person responsible should continue paying for any future medical expenses you may have.
