| | Why did my Mother have to die from colon cancer
My Mother had her last colonoscopy 6/30/06. So i am told the dr found polyps, and put bands around them.?????What is this? She went into the hospital in August 07 ,for bleeding, they gave her 5 pints pf blood sent her home, and on September 10,07 she went back in to the hospital, weak with c-diff, and passed away October. The Dr.s and all medical people are making it impossible for me to get her records, as I believe her gasto dr. found the cancer and just let her die, with no choice of treatments. Someone out there please respond and give me direction. I have been so greif stricken, thinking my Mother didnt have to die, from colon cancer, and I need answers. Please help, if you can. My Mother was very healthy and took excellant care of herself. She was 83 years old in July, and she was healthier than all 5 of us, her children. She had colonoscopys ever 2 years, because her sister died of colon cancer when she was 88 years old. Does anyone have any ideas how I can find out just what this dr did or dint do to my Mother? Thank you so much for your help.
