I had severe symptoms for 4 months including a cough that wouldn't go away, night sweats, chronic fever, bone pain, jaundice, swelling of limbs, distended abdomen, etc. I saw my primary care physician every two weeks and was prescribed allergy medicine, inhalers, etc. Finally I went to the ER when my fevers would reach 104 and the ER doc ordered extensive testing right away. I was hospitalized, diagnosed with Stage IV leukemia and nearly died. I'm in remission now and this was 6 years ago. Is the doctor liable at all for failure to diagnose when there is plenty of documentation showing the symptoms I complained of at each visit?
