Misdiagnosed for 15 years.
I am 30 and he mother of two almost three children. I started to care for my father last year. About 15 years ago he was diagnosed with hepatitis c. He decided to get a second opinion. That Dr told my father he had been misdiagnosed that he did not have hepatitis c. 15 years later the hepatitis c he didn't have is rediagnosed. Because of that second opinion my father now has cihrosis of the liver. Which causes him excruciating pain. I quit my job to take care of him. Which made my husband very angry. He wants me to put him in a nursing home but i refuse. I decided to leave my husband over it. My dad has three Dr.s they all say he needs care 24/7. That is why I quit my job. There is a cure for hepatitis c it only takes 24 weeks and he will be cured. The liver damage though will take more time. At least 5 years the hepatitis c Dr says.
My father has to have fluid drained off of him twice a month. Is there any way i could have my dad take the second Dr to court because if he had never been misdiagnosed he would have never had the liver failure and would not be in so much pain.
