Mrs M, only in her 50s, was devastated to be told that the lump she had in her abdomen was incurable cancer. She was effectively sent home to die, with no attempt to investigate further or seek advice on treatment. Thankfully, she was determined not to take this at face value and after managing to get a second opinion from a specialist in London she had immediate surgery with what seems to be complete success. We are working to get her compensation for the extreme stress she suffered as well as for the fact that due to delay she had to ensure much more complicated surgery than she would otherwise have needed.
