Yes, I have been present with my friend at 2 of the 3 attorneys that have agreed to review the case and have a face-to-face meeting. The attorney's
in this state have both said: I'll paraphrase -we're not saying that there isn't a case ( for malpractice ), but it would be difficult and costly
to prove. Too costly to make it worth it (supposedly for) my friend.
The point is that this case is way beyond simple malpractice.
During the first surgery the appendix was removed and a sample sent to pathology for analysis. There is a microscopic report which does show that
the appendix needed to be removed.
The second surgery removed everything "downstream" from the appendix to approximately 1/2 of their transverse colon. This was supposedly done
because of " nodes" the surgeon saw in the colon? How they saw these is not discussed in the surgery documentation. Furthermore, NO SPECIMENS were
submitted to pathology for analysis.
So, was this part of my friends colon diseased or harvested? I was present at my friends follow-up colonoscopy which revealed healthy colon up to and
including the anastomoses ( not sure if I spelled this correctly, but it is the part where the small intestines is now connected to the large
intestines or colon).
It is highly unlikely that the part of my friends colon that was removed was diseased at all. They were and to a much lesser degree now are a healthy
and viable athlete, personal trainer, and nutritionalist. A perfect donor although unknowingly and unwillingly.
Now for some information on the surgeon. They have been on the staff of the hospital their entire career since completing medical school. They rose
through the ranks to become the chief of surgery. they perform 90% of the emergency surgeries and have conducted in excess of 200 clinical trials.
This information was obtained with the aid of a private investigator.
One other tidbit about the surgeon is that he attended medical school at one of this countries premier transplant institutions.
It is disturbing, yet brilliant that they sold this as an "emergency and life-saving" surgery. It is just too convenient that they only removed
enough of my friend's GI tract that they didn't have to crap into a bag in the side of their torso. A win-win for a surgeon playing God, preserving
(somewhat) one person's life while " saving another's.
I hope this gives you a better idea of the scope of this terrible crime without revealing names.
If there is anyone out there SERIOUS about helping get this story out, I can and will provide you with copies of the actual medical documentation and
my friend's summaries. This has been either scanned into .pdf, powerpoint presentation or in the actual format provided i.e. CT scans.
