In early December, my wife was diagnosed with metasticized breast cancer. Her cancer spread to her brain, spine, and lymph nodes. My wife had expressed concern about the lump in the breast months before the diagnosis. In fact, she may have brought it to the attention of her OBGYN over a year ago. Her OBGYN told her that it was probably just from breast-feeding and that such things were not uncommon.
NO MAMMOGRAM, no further tests were done. Not being physicians, why wouldn't we accept that determination....now we know better!
Confirmed: Breast cancer that had metasticized! The lump that she had brought to her OBGYN also confirmed as aggressive cancer.
In addition to this, we are in financially difficulty and considering chapter 7. We were a 2-income household and medical bills, etc. proving to be overwhelming. My wife is still in the ICU from other complications from cancer.
We are in TX. When does the statute of limitations begin? From diagnosis? How long do we have until we can file? If we are filing for chapter 7, when is the best time to do file for malpractice? We plan to file chapter 7 in 4-6 months.
