I deal with chronic pain every day of my life because my GP took 7 years to diagnose a medical problem I had. He'd never heard of it, so obviously, it did not exist in his mind (many doctors - I've found out - suffer from God complex). He told me it was all in my mind until by chance I went to another doctor who diagnosed me in literally under 2 minutes. By then the damage was done. Nerve endings and blood vessels had had years of overwork and were damaged beyond repair - even after surgery to fix the problem. Many people tell me I should sue, but I don't want to put myself and family through the stress.
1. Have you ever launched a medical lawsuit for any reason?
2. Do you think that the payout of lawsuits are worth the pain and suffering and stress they cause?
