My mother had a double mastectomy surgery in August 2012 for Stage 0 carcinoma in-situ. She just kept having benign tumors so she was advised to have the surgery. By the end of September she started to feel ill and she entered the hospital Oct. 1 and died by Oct. 5th. None of her doctors seemed to have any clue as to what was going on and her body just shut down. I received the death certificate and it showed that she had colon cancer which in turn shut down her kidney and liver. I would think if she had a double mastectomy that they would have done testing to look for any other cancer or issues prior to that type of surgery. Does this seem like malpractice, she was only 58??
