My husband is 38 years old and was diagnosed August of 2005:mad: :confused: with seminoma testicular cancer, they told him he was a stage I..did surgery and radiation and ran no further test for 6 months after treatment. At the six month point June of this year they did a abdominal CT. In the mean time he went to see the doctor in June, July and August because he was having chest/back pain and told the doctors he was worried because he has a history of cancer. They diagnosed him with having a pulled muscle. They never ran continuing test when he went in complaining that the pain was worsening, they just gave him pain meds. Well after taking him to an emergency room that had NOTHING to do with our insurance, they ran ONE test a Chest CT and found a LARGE mass on the back side of his left lung at his spine. Needless to say they sent us back to our regular insurance medical group to do biopsy, ect. During this time he became progressively numb so we ended up in the ER again (our medical group) they finally admitted him and figured out that once again he has seminoma at the back side of his lung at the spine. They started chemo which reacted on his spine and he became paralyzed from the chest down.....Malpractice/Neglect????
Whats your option?
