My diabetic Mother fell in the house on the 2/25. Was admitted to the hospital by her primary doctor 2/26 where he ( primary doctor) ordered a cat scan. It revealed a cancer in her lungs and a brain tumor. He recommended surgery to remove the tumor. 3/1 The tumor is removed . Due to the surgery it resulted in my mother having a stroke on the right side of her body. She was extremely coherent 2 days after surgery. On 3/8 She was transfered to a Rehabilitation home. On 3/9 while visiting her ,my wife noticed that my mothers toe nails where black. informed the RN she told us it was swollen. From 3/11 to 3/14 she was Heavily medicated . 3/19 she was given a biopsy. 3/20 was told her right foot had to be amputated because of gang green to her knee. She originally went in for her legs!My Mothers Primary Doctor admitted to my family that his 2 (so called) visits to the Rehab home that he never looked at her legs and "dropped the ball". How is it that the Primary Doctor, The Rehabilition home and RN's not catch this even though it was brought to their attention by numerous family members at various times. Gang green is the cause of her declining health and days for her to live not the cancer that we were prepared to fight with her. Please help.
