    Answered . The facts you provided are classic for a failure to timely diagnose and treat colon cancer. It will be important to promptly obtain and review your sister's medical records. An expert must determine what complication in addition to the peroration could have been avoided by prompt surgical intervention. These cases are subject to a 2 year statute of limitations.

    Answered . This sounds like it is worth investigating. An attorney will need to collect the medical records and review them with experts. Act quickly, as there is a two year statute of limitations (deadline within which you must file a lawsuit) and at least six months have passed since the surgery.
