What do you MEAN I'm not going to die?

*sniff*

Sad, sad day. No human should ever have to go through what he's going through.

he should get a job.


Battle is a pure form of expression. It is heart and discipline, reduced to movement and motion. In battle, the words are swept away, giving way to actions-- mercy, sacrifice, anger, fear. These are pure moments of expression.

Heh, that's ironic.

Good news or no, I think he's entitled to receive some form of compensation from the hospital. That was quite a bit of trouble their diagnosis caused him.

Would hate to get caught in that one .

I think he's at least entitled to something. A diagnosis of death is not something to be taken lightly, condisering how easily it can influence people.

Edit:

Sabre, I decided to take the moral high route of sympathy or whatever...

...but you are 100% correct

How could a hospital confuse inflammation with tumors in the first place.

Still, bottom line: I agree with Sabre, pwnt.

QFE.

Getting another opinion before spending your life savings is advisable. Not saying I wouldn't do the exact same thing, but Id get another opinion or two first.

I've heared this story a million times. There always a different one in the paper every month. Last time, it was two old people both diagnosed.


Waking up.

PT Barnum comes to mind......

Amazing, though, that he wouldn't seek to get a second or third opinion before burning up his finances like that. Not really sure how I'd handle that as a judge, b/c I don't believe you can be sued for diagnosing someone as terminal (unless you're the ONLY doctor around for hundreds of miles or something). Well, a fool and his money are once again parted........

I'm really sorry for him. But maybe this served as a lesson that life is more valuable than money? Nah, probably not.

This was found in an inquiry following his protests. It actually says so in the article, too (last paragraph). So no, a second opinion would not have worked.

And I know I would've done the same thing. Nah, wait, I'd probably not. I'd keep going to school, keep being with friends, and so on. But I'd have been sure to visit Taiwan, try parachuting once... you know, things one wants to do once in his life.

Actually, probraly would have. After all, this is the exact same hosptial who mistaken inflammation for a cancer in the panceras. Maybe they made a huge mistake and just covering themselves in prepartion for legation, because they really don't want to pay.

Can't wait for the lawsuits.

A biopsy would have confirmed or ruled out the cancer, and likely an MRI with contrast. Yeah, the hospital and/or the doc likely messed up. Certainly any follow-up testing would have confirmed that he wasn't getting any worse.

TBH, I'd kill myself anyways, but not before screaming expletives and giving obscene gestures in front of the hospital on public television.

AP then reported Ashton Kutcher jumping out of a nearby cadaver to yell "Punk'd!"
