You would think that after all the cases of cancer in the world that by now doctors would be looking deeper into chronic illness and pain of patients to see if it could be possible. Instead I still hear the horrors of misdiagnosis and or pure neglect. It upsets me that people suffer terribly and often times without ever really looking for problems.
My Mother In-law from previous marriage was just diagnosed with liver cancer and this woman has been suffering for years and it seems everyone she has seen has put it up to old age or her mind going. Isn't that interesting a common thing when dealing with women who are aging. I didn't have early diagnosis cause they wouldn't check the lump cause I was a healthy young well built woman who showed no signs of being ill, tired not sick.
Well for 2 years this woman has had probems with her back where she could hardly walk. She has had congenative heart failure and now this. My mother inlaw was just given xrays in emergency because this woman has been so ill and no one will do anything. Now in very bad shape, found a huge mass in her liver so did scans including bone scan and you wouldn't believe what they found? There she is in agony and they found this woman had a fractured back and don't know for how long, NO wonder her back has been bothering her, and HOW could they miss a thing like a 6cm tumor in her liver if they even checked anything out. IMAGINE in this day and age. Maybe doctors should come and read some of these sites it might wake them up to what is truly going on out in the real world. I am sorry now that I didn't try a little harder to get her to get the help she needed especially after all I have been through. But she lives on the other side of this country I live in Canada. Why is it seems there are so many doctors out there that don't care, makes it hard on the ones that truly do. Can't go to another doctor there aren't any to go to. A crying shame.
