In 20ll I underwnt surgery for cancer of the left lung resulting in removal of the lung.  The healing process took awhile and I have to tell you I had the most supportive family in the world.  They took such wonderful care of mine.  The following year I experienced kidney failure and had to go on dialysis and was so very ill for a couple months, again my family showed their true colors and their love.   I am feeling good for the most part now, but I am still receiving great care frim my family.  I feel both blessed and lucky.

When I had my son, through emergency C-Section, the doctor left the placenta in me. My blood pressure was at stroke or heart attack levels. My had one infection after another. My temperature stayed at 104. My blood pressure never got better. I'm on three blood pressure pills. Before then I was totally healthy. After that, I have had one thing after another happen to me. Still going through a lot of things. When he finally found the placenta, he put it behind his back, and told his nurse to throw it away. If it weren't for my husband, I never would have known about it.

I'm so sorry for all the things you had to go through. I'm glad you are feeling a little better now. You and I are the luckiest people, when it comes to our family. My husband and son have been there for me through everything too. My mom was too, when she was still alive.

the worst thing that has happened to me is a case of appendicitis. Mark and the kids babied me for about the first 3 days out of the hospital but that is about it.

I hope you sued that doctor.  What a horrible experience that had to have been.  I am so sorry your problems have continued.

I had two surgeries six months apart back in 2001 and 2002. The first was for a borderline ovarian tumor. Treatment was complete hysterectomy.

The second was for a benign but gigantic liver hemangioma that took two years to get my energy back to normal. I am fine and feel great ever since both.

Thank you very much. You are not going to believe this, but we didn't sue. Even after he hid the placenta, we were too dumb. He also made it so I couldn't have a sibling for my son. I have this thing called Asherman's Disease. It's wear I haven't been able to have a period, since I was twenty nine, so I couldn't have a period, and I couldn't have another baby. We were too dumb, to think about all these things, so he got away with it.

I forgot to tell you, that I had two doctors that would have testified for me. I was also told it would have been a million dollar lawsuit. If it was today, I would have known to sue.

I just got diagnosed with parathyroid disease. I'm getting a scan and ultrasound done this week to determine where the tumors are so they can operate later.
