husband died unexpectedly wife having serious grief
(sacramento, ca, usa)
My husband had surgery foe stage. 1 cancer and Dr got all but scar tissue (unknown he had) made it hard for Dr to get to so lung was beaten up and he was to be in I.c.u. 2 days to regular floor for 4 days. He was in agony with what he said was severe heartburn and no meds gave him any relief. He had a 26 day in I.c..u. 25 years ago with an undiagnosed lung infection from which he recovered and never had lung problems afterward until this. Dr knew about that and did not check on it. The severe " heartburn" he never got relief from we since have been told could have been angina. He never complained about pain from chest tubes he had or incision. After 6 agonizing days with no relief, food or water he died of a massive heart attack. I have terrible grieving and am very angry with Dr. I feel cheated of more years with him, he just turned 70. This grief is severe and it has been over 2 months but feels like the first day.
