My wife was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer six months ago and, so far, hasn't been responding positively to treatment. When we pressed my wife's oncologist for a realistic prognosis, he responded bluntly, "You're as good as worm food".
What kind of monster would say that to a cancer patient?
Needless to say, my wife was completely crushed. She hasn't left the house in days, and outright refuses to consider any other treatment options. She seems resigned to just lay in bed and die...
Can I get the doctor into any trouble for saying something so cruel? How could I prove that he said it?
More importantly, how can I get my wife out of this emotional funk? Thanks and God bless.
