See what questions
a doctor would ask.
A woman spent 20 years searching for an answer to her symptoms which included headaches, dizziness, lightheadedness and fatigue. She was given 35 different diagnoses for her condition including scar tissue. Eventually, a young doctor diagnosed her with a non-cancerous tumour. She fell pregnant before it could be removed and it grew during her pregnancy. An operation to remove the tumour straight after the baby’s delivery led to some complications and she now lives with a disability. Her attempts to sue doctors were thwarted by the passing of the statute of limitations.
