  • Wow. That's really disturbing. When they told you that you were misdiagnosed, did they tell you what the effect of chemo on a patient without cancer would have? It's way better than a patient with cancer because of their reduced immune system. What is the hospital/doctor doing about this? You really should see a lawyer. This is really, really wrong.

  • First, give thanks you don't have cancer after all. Second, get a copy of all your medical records.....you have a right to these under HIPAA law. You will have to sign for these to be released to you. Or you can have your lawyer request them for you. Third, find a doctor.....think best would be an internal medicine doctor...to get all your reports as to what you have been thru. Then he can follow you from here on out to monitor any changes that may show up due to the medications given to you over that time. And no, this is not so hard to believe. In most of the very large hospitals or cancer centers a patient becomes a number on a chart. You lose the personal touch of the "family" hometown doctor relationship in the big centers like that. Its sad but it happens. I am lucky to be in a rural area, and many of our terminal patients (my family included) have been brought back to our smaller hospital for their final days or even to still be followed thru their illness when possible to get the support of close family, town citizens, local family doctor support where we remember them by name.

  • What a horrible situation, but glad you are still here. A lawsuit is definately in order. How could doctors have been giving you chemotherapy for all that time? Didn't they bother to do an MRI or CT and look if your "cancer" was getting smaller? Didn't they bother to compare it to your first test and notice the fact that you didn't have any tumor or cancer??Your body's immune system will definately work its way back to normal, but you should consult with a nutritionalist about taking suppliments to boost it. There are many recommended products for people coming out of chemotherapy.

  • Glad you don't have cancer. Glad your still alive. Trying to get medical records can be hard but I used to work for a company that specialized in retreiving medical records or life insurance claims. so if you have life insurance they most likely have a copy of your records which you can also request. usually getting them took 2-10 weeks, or you can pick them up from your Dr's office.
