ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
about 2 years ago a spot on my wife's stomach appeared. then we noticed over time it started swelling. after seeing several doctors and surgeons and testing and MRI and CT scans all of whom did not want to help or offer a diagnosis we were referred to a infectious disease dr. he put my wife on antibiotics twice a day for a solid year and the swelling started receding at first then it started growing again and after a year he said there was nothing else he could and told us to go back to her primary care doctor and her primary care doctor said he didn't know what else to do. so now here we are 2 years later with a mass on her stomach weighing approximately 10lbs. now she is having trouble getting up from a seated position, she is having trouble walking, she is falling, has bad back pain, severe abdominal pain and is urinating on herself and is totally unaware of it. she has had several surgeries in the past such as C-section, gastric by pass roux en y , gallbladder removed, and lastly a breast reduction after which all of the problem starter about 2 months after this particular surgery in which I think that the doctor didn't take her lymphatic drainage system in to account because she has swelling in her left leg also which is the same side as the abdominal swelling. the plastic surgeon did what he referred to as a keyhole breast reduction. please she could really use the help with this case as she has lost all hope and has fallen into severe depression and never leaves the house not even to see family at functions like Easter, Christmas and Thanksgiving or even go out of the house, she is only 48 years old and she should be in the prime of her life but no she's not. she has also been sleeping on the couch because laying in bed really hurts her stomach area.
