I was diagnosed with breast cancer in both breasts and lymph nodes under both arms in August 2006. After completing treatment, my ultrasounds for 2005 are missing. Attempting to locate them, I have heard stories from many women whose mammograms and other radiology records have gone missing after a diagnosis of cancer. These missing records prevent any hope of collecting damages - which is perhaps why they have gone missing! My time period for filing a malpractice lawsuit ends on August 29, 2008. I am desperate to hear from others whose records have gone missing while they were facing the terror of cancer and debilitating effects of chemotherapy and radiation.
Additionally, women must be made aware of the best ways to secure their mammograms and ultrasounds after a diagnosis. Instructions - perhaps through EmpowHer - would help so many women in the future!
