My mother had breast cancer for 4 years before passing away in January. after extensive chemo and radiation the doctor said everything looked good and the cancer was in remission based on her ct scans and pet scans. She was okay till new years day in which she became short of breath and couldnt breath. So was admitted to the emergency room. Her lungs had filled with fluid and collapsed. Once at the ER they redid her ct and pet scans only find that the cancer had gone haywire throughout her body. no more than 3 weeks later she passed away due to respiritory failure from the cancer spreading to her lungs. The doctor that treated her after having a collapsed lung said to seek legal counsel as this was a mistake on my moms doctor. My father is not a sue happy person and has never sued anyone. My dad is a deacon at our church and my mom was very involved in church/religion therefore my father is shying away from a malpractice lawsuit(if this is the case). However, if this is the case my dad wants to make sure this doctor does not practice medicine again or at the very least understands what happened. Based on this information is ther eanything that can be done? does it seem like we might have a case that will hold water? THanks.
