Reply To: Anyone sue a doctor for bad diagnosis

Hi. I’m not familiar with the one leg paralysis experience- usually it is symmetrical, but I’m not an expert. Nor am I a person with diabetes (yet), but I have known several and if they ever had trouble breathing it was from obesity, not diabetes. I have mild neuropathy and developed full-blown asthma at some point in my hospital stay.
I’m sorry you had such a difficult time with your diagnosis.
Diagnosis can be difficult with a relatively rare disorder. I’ve heard of people with Multiple Sclerosis who aren’t diagnosed properly for years! You can consult a lawyer, but it sounds like you are still alive and still have all of your parts. If I could sue for “them” putting me on a med that caused me to gain too much weight, that would be sweet. But I can’t prove that 100%. And the law does not allow to sue for stupidity. So, there you are.
I hope someone else has a better answer for you soon.
