Kind of gross in parts.....fair warning. My stepdad is back in the hospital. He was urinating every 5 minutes but his urine was full of blood and clots. Mom took him to the ER and of course he was admitted. The urologist said it was probably either a result of radiation burns from treatments he got a few years ago or cancer. Fortunately (?) it turned out to be radiation related. My question though....even though he got radiation treatments for prostate cancer a few years ago, he's had nothing but horrible problems since. They basically cooked him. I understand that with treatments such as radiation there are always risks but as I said, they cooked him. His colon is almost literally fried, he has a colostomy because of it, horrible lesions in his rectum and now his bladder is disentigrating. Does he have ANY legal recourse would you think? He's had no quality of life since his treatments....none. He's either in bed, at the doctor's, in the hospital or occasionally in his recliner. That's pretty much his life. Sometimes he'll feel up to walking outside but that's rare. Additionally his regular doctor is quite possibly incompetent and at best, a moron. I told Mom to make a list of her concerns both with the doctor and in general and speak with the patient representative tomorrow. I'm thinking though that surely there's SOMETHING they can do...some sort of recourse. Thoughts?
