Did you leave something out here when reporting about your latest physical?


Nah i've been dealing with this for 20 years ,so far nothing other than the usual issues involved around having a prostate the size of a small childs head(my urologists words) Both my brothers have had cancer though it runs strong in families . My younger brothers doc said his momma even had it

:thumbs-up: Finally submitted my disability claim. They've actually made it a lot easier.

Keep an eye on that. Also remember that by age 80 or so the vast majority of men have some cancer cells there...it's all in what "strain" it is. My brother developed a more aggressive strain several years ago, and thanks to it being mishandled, it is going to eventually kill him (it was allowed to metastasize.) I have my PSA checked with yearly bloodwork and low and stable so far.

The closest I ever got to the VA was working on the construction crew at the hospital in Palo Alto

Closer than many veterans.

I've never actually been to one either.

I was once offered a pretty well paid and cushy job at a VA. If I had been a citizen at the time I might well have taken it and I would be within a few years of dat gubment pension. frown.gif

What exactly did they do to "mishandle " it? I have had 4 biopsies , blood and urine tests and an MRI ,yearly exam by my urologist and PSA every 6 months . Everything comes back negative . I've quit worrying about it . Gone be what its gone be

First, this took place in Canada. PCP played "wait and see" for nearly two years when he was having problems peeing and started passing blood. Finally gave him a referral when he started having some bad pain. From referral to radical prostatectomy was about seven months. Surgery center did not have ability to do frozen margin samples while he was on the table and they clearly missed some. Follow up was being told no further treatment was warranted due to his advanced condition and get his affairs in order. I personally took charge and got him into see someone at the Karmanos Cancer Institute in Michigan and I could have paid for a CVO Street Glide for what that cost me. On the plus side I've had my older brother alive and active for six years now when OHIP was ready to bury him.

Does this qualify as "mishandle?"

This was not an official offer but rather a GF type offer where the person in charge of hiring the position told me to apply and didn't know I was a furriner.

The worst thing is there's no legal recourse as it met "standard of care" in Ontario, and even if it was actionable, Canada's malpractice is not in the least like the US's. The caps on awards are quite small, as in, I think non-economic damages are 250k max.
