    #25 Hi Skip, many Doctors are not assholes. We are all going to run across a few, it's up to the 'consumer' to do their homework, speak up (have an advocate) present etc... I'm sorry you had such a bad experience and I'm glad to hear you are healthy now. My sister is a 10 year survivor of breast cancer and the heavy duty medications saved her life.

    To each their own with alternative stuff. You must sell Shaklee? It's been around for a long time. Thanks for your comment!

    SO sorry to hear about your Mom. My Dad died of Prostate cancer about 10 years ago. Doctors are basically assholes! First they are like robots and most don't give a damn about anything but a paid invoice. When I was diagnosed with prostate cancer (like father, like son...) it was a horrendous experience and NOT just because they said I was dying! The assholes tried and tried to get me accept diabolical/barbaric 'treatments' that were often worse than my cancer. They said I was too fat for surgery (boy was I then!) so radiation and a bunch of other crap was forced on me; but I told them ALL to go to hell. They said I only had 3 years if I refused their 'treatments' and maybe 5 if I accepted the crap they offered.

    Well it's no EIGHT years and I'm a healthy, mostly fit, 70+ year old fart; alive and kicking an healthier NOW than I was at 40 (or younger). I was fortunate to have discovered, while researching my Fathers cancer, that there were ALTERNATIVES to the traditional crap most doctors force upon patients; basically Treating them to DEATH.

    Don't let the bastards in the medical industry get to you. Most are quacks, drug pushers and profit from pain and suffering. Learn to LIVE and Survive. You may not CURE yourself but it's a damned site better than the side effects of chemo and radiation/surgery. Everyone need to CHOOSE what they will do and sometimes go against the flow. I did and it worked. I hope it would work for others too. My full story is on my web site: http://prostatecancerfight.com/.

    If YOU or a loved one has cancer (or any other lifestyle disease) I am available to talk/listen and maybe help.

    Cheers,

    #21 Thanks @Ian Weinberg. Yes, I realize Doctors are only human and imperfect like the rest of us. I must say I worked with many Doctors and although this particular Doctor was nice, I think he was a bit lazy and didn't follow up with his own notes. It wasn't the first time he let her down but she liked his demeanor and kept going back. We would have never sued him even if she hadn't changed her mind. That was a mistake that was maybe missed by the Office staff and finding that type of cancer earlier would not have saved my mom. She had small cell lung cancer.

    I have a lot of respect for Doctors, they have a tough job and I believe most of them go above and beyond the call of duty. My husband has a few Doctors in Pittsburgh who even give their cell phone numbers to him and have emailed as well when there has been a problem. So, I don't want others to think I feel all doctors are irresponsible (I can't even say if her doctor was, maybe he was just very liberal with her)?? Thanks for commenting, I appreciate it!

    #20 Hi @Glenn Melcher, I'm sorry your mom went through something similar. Yes, my mom had a compassionate heart and she did give others the benefit of doubt. Even when she brought up suing the Doctor, we all knew she was very upset with her diagnosis. Sadly, even if her cancer had been detected back in January, there was still nothing they could have done to save her because it was a terminal cancer w/out a cure. Maybe she was afforded more time because they didn't begin other treatments earlier on that might have been tougher on her.

    I see so many families that do fight and don't have good relationships and that is very sad. I'm forever thankful that somehow my mom made sure we all got along and forgive easily, that's a legacy within itself. She was different from me in other ways. She was very crafty, I am not LOL. Thanks so much for your comment!

    Doctors try to carry out the requirements of their vocation to the best of their abilities. But they are only human, working within imperfect systems that are invariably over-subscribed. Yes there are some 'bad eggs' among us, but for the most part, medical and para-medical staff are decent people who aspire to making people well. But then there is a greater reality beyond our control ... Condolences @Lisa 🐝 Gallagher on your loss.

    If it is such that by sharing we can make one Life better even if for only the moment.

I wish I could have used a recorder to enunciate her voice (it was actually quite funny) after the fact. I never saw her so upset with me but it was fear, she really wasn't mad AT me. I'm glad you enjoyed this, that was my hope.. I didn't write it to depress anyone :))

Nurses and Doctors get so busy, errors do happen easily and one error you don't want when you have a loved one dying is to have them suffer because someone forgot their pain medication. Thanks for your kind words! I'm sure you still miss your dad very much, he couldn't have been too old when he passed?

    This is hard to read because I was a victim of a wrong diagnosis a few times. Mine was simple compared to my om because no one seems to understand mental illness. The medical profession can be on your side some of the time but not all of the time.

    I know how you might have felt while hearing that word. I agree with you that we should never leave our ill loved ones unattended. More than the diagnosis they need us more. That is the moment where they need special attention and care. If not words than our magical touch does wonders. How privileged you are that you got the opportunity to nurse and take care of your mom.

    Our values and virtues speaks ton about us and I highly regard you in that aspect. I do respect you in all aspects but being a family person is something different. I liked your buzz in its entirety, @Lisa 🐝 Gallagher.

    Lisa, your mother was a real saint and I'm very sorry again for your loss. Moreover, I'm sure all of her fine qualities are shining through you -- per your many wonderful attributes and character traits.
    It's true that doctors are neither gods nor are they infallible, as you demonstrate. I recall being by my father's side in the ICU before he passed away. I always made sure the nurses were giving him the appropriate medication to ease his pain and suffering. Our parents were there for us as children and now it's time for us to be there for them as adults as they live through their "Golden Years." You are most certainly a role model in this respect and so many others, Lisa.
    Thanks for all YOU do!

    I'm glad that there are some researchers who do some useful research instead of finding ways to keep people on FB a few minutes longer. However, I think it takes a bit more than just scientific knowledge and know-how to work out a cure for this terrible disease that manifests as tumors. Hopefully, there will one day be some entrepreneurial initiative to accompany the scientific one and make things happen.

    #1 Alas, so we thought and think yet the world has moved on but for the occasional beacon of hope amongst the educated. There was a night watchman at Karachi who once asked me that if the reins of government had been in the hands of the illiterate they could be excused but they are in the hands of the literate so what then is the excuse. I have shared his concerns at a lot of official forums with narry an answer. It's called something and many a thing and yet has been perennial since times immemorial, from immodesty to dishonourableness to realpolitik to survival.
