Ok, ever hear that story about that kid that is fighting a illness that is super rare in its current condition and his chance of living past the age of 12 is 1%. Well my moms friend has a little boy who is 5 years old with a condition to that degree. He has had countless open heart surgerious none of whihc has fixed it. So his Mother in a disserpate attempt researched new surgical methods to try and save her son's life. And she found one, its a risky surgeroy, one that can easily go wrong living the boy dead on the table.
Needless to say his normal doctor isn't willing to do it, he says that the surgerogy is too risky and he wouldn't want to do it until the boy is older, problem being this boy will most likely be dead by that time without this being done to him. So his mother said fine she'll find someone that'll do it. SHe did as well.
A doctor in Austria said he'd do it, he was part of the development of this suregory early on. Hes very familiar with it and said that he'd be more then happy to try and make it work. He also said the chances of failure are high and the boy may die in the operating room. To which his Mother glaldly agreed and understood the risks. Now to do this surgeory this doctor needs proof of previous operations done, and of his condition, essentially medical records and suregory paperwork. All of which should be readily avaliable to her. She simply needs to ask.
Now this may seem like its coming out to a success story. Which until this next part it very well has. We found a method to try and save this boys life, we found a perosn who is willing to give it his best shot, and we found a ways and a means. Whats the problem?
The paperwork, the boys doctor refuses to give up the paperwork apparently. It doesn't directly admit to it however claims all kinds of BS reasons why he can't deliever it. We know however he's worried for this boys life and he efels the operation is too risky to undertake. Therefore he is stone walling us on this. However its not his choice to make. The doctor we are going to is one of the best around so we aren't looking at a 2nd rate doctor here. Top of his class etc blah blah. Doctor has a lot of experience too and says he feels he can do it, however the boy may die.
So this doctor from Germany refuses to give us the required paperwork for this operation, although he has it. Kinda BS if you ask me. This boys life span is VERY SHORT, if we just left him as be right now today he'd last 6 months to a year depending on his will to live. If this sugeroy is done and its succesfull it will most likely permanetly fix the condition, should it fail he may well die on the operating table, at least he didn't suffer a painful death. Which if we live him be is exactly how it'll end up being.
So right now my moms is going down with her friend to ask ploitely again for the paperwork, should he say no we return unannounced with a lawyer and demand it that day and tell them to give us the paperwork or we sue the enxt day.
What do you guys think?
