A man was given several courses of antibiotics to treat what was diagnosed as a bladder infection. When his symptoms did not disappear, the doctor claimed to have misdiagnosed him and said he had kidney stones. After surgery, he was told he had already passed the kidney stones. He sought a second opinion after continuing problems and discovered he had bladder cancer resulting in removal of the bladder and chemo.
