I have been looking for a place to vent about the recent death of my longtime girlfriend,Sonia.She passed in August,a little more than a month after the initial diagnosis. what angers me most is the fact that the diagnosis came too late to help her,and , I would not be bothered if not for the fact that she regularly saw doctors for other issues. It irks me that in all that time,not one of these 'professionals'spotted a mass on any one of the numerous scans and x-rays that were taken. I feel that she should still be here,and not buried in an expensive hole in the ground.It has been vexing everyday to have to try to understand this.
When I had cancer they missed it on the first biopsy.
I'm fortunate that didn't ruin my prognosis. But even with all the knowledge? Human error exists.
And not all cancers are easily found.
I'm so sorry for your loss. If you ever want to talk about it feel free to pm me.
Am so sorry for your loss
I can’t stress enough get checked and checked again
I went strictly to every check and yet they didn’t seem to know the difference between a wart and cancer
Luckily I showed him myself and it was stage 1
But should never have got that far
Sorry for your loss. I don't know what type of cancer Sonia had but each cancer is so different. I was diagosed with AML -Acute Myloid Leukemia 6 years ago. The day I was diagnosed I was told if I didn't start chemo I would be dead in 3 weeks. I did chemo,radiation, and bone marrow transplant. Had heart failure 3 years ago. You never know when cancer will rear its ugly head with anyone.
