in 1986 i had a daughter, then in 1989 i had a stillborn daughter, followed by a healthy son in 1991, then between 2002-2006 i had 6 more pregnancys, 4 losses all late in pregnancy and 2 healthy daughters, in all my pregnancys my immune system was allways low or borderline, was low in iron, but they were never worried, in the pregnancys i lost wasnt all one sex, and no cause was ever found, pm's done on all, my dad who had pernisios enemia, vitamin b12 deficiency, had b12 injections, was then treated for a skin complaint for 3 years, which turned out to be skin cancer, he then had PUVA treatment for over 3 years with this, as we know now he should of had regular checks for tumours as the PUVA treatment can cause stomach tumors, his medication should of been callculated with his weight for the right dosage, he was given methoxypsoralen before each PUVA treatment, 3 years later he was told the dosage he had been taken all this time was too high, his weight plumeted, still they never found this to be a worry, we pushed this as he had a trapped nerve in his arm for a great deal of time, which this nerve turned out to be a tumor travelling, after tests my dad was told he had advanced stomach cancer told he had months left, he died 5 weeks later on 19th december 2006, i feel so cheated and let down, should i look into this further or am i looking for something thats not there, my lost pregnancys are they related to this, would tests during these pregnancys of picked it up if it was, head is pickled, (sorry its so long)
