False Cancer Diagnosis at Cleveland VA
When you go to the doctor, there is a certain standard of care that you expect to receive while there. Even the most pragmatic person is acutely aware of the degree of risk receiving bad news while at the doctor’s office, but nobody expects to get told they have cancer, undergo two surgical procedures for it…only to find out that they never even had cancer in the first place.
Yet that is exactly what happened to Army veteran Gary DeLong when he went to the VA Medical Center in Cleveland. The retired Operation Desert Storm demolition specialist went to the center for a growth on his neck and was bluntly told that he had cancer and needed surgery immediately. DeLong, who was with his wife when he got the diagnosis, prepared for the worst and said all of his final good-byes to his loved ones.
Finally, two surgeries later, he was told just as flatly that he had never had cancer in the first place, and not only were these procedures unnecessary, so was all of his anxiety and panic. DeLong may now have a clean bill of health, but he’ll never get the time back that he lost living in fear of imminent death.
