i took my father to the emergency room because he was complaining of severe back pain The hospital said he had Osteoartrites and he should see his doctor the next day,which he did.He had also been complaining of a hernia which he has had for a few years,so I had him back to his doctor who sent him for a MRI.When that came back he told my father he could not operate on him because he had a much bigger problem.He told us he had a mass around his spinal cord and it was crippling him and he also had lesions on his back and lungs.(he also said the emergency doctor was wrong he did not have Osteoarthrites)After that visit we were sent fot a CAT scan and soon after a PET scan all along taking many blood samples and vitals.My father was then sent to their cancer treatment center for 17 radiation treatments.We set up a appointment to have a biopsy done 2weeks later.When we got there they put him in a room and told him to put a gown on. Someone else came in told him to get dressed,then a third person came in said they were checking equipment then anestia guy came in to ask more questions Finally after nearly 1 1/2 hrs they came in and told us they didnt have the equipment they needed to do the procedure and they would call to reschedule.Each time my father had a radiation treatment he was very ill.With each treatment he progressively got worst (vomiting,cant eat ,light headed cant stand at times,in much pain,very weak now the only thing he can hold down is chocolate milk. He has lost over 20lbs and now looks very frail. My father was always very healthy.When on his last treatment of radiation he was talking to the nurse there about the confussion over the biopsy and she replied"do you mean they dont even know if you have cancer,you should not have had treatment until that was confirmed"Now we want a 2nd opinion. Im afraid to take my father back there.Can you help? Thank you Anne Slevenski 814 647 3312 mom56dukes@yahoo
