On November 19, 2009 a $1.75 million settlement was reached for for our client who, at age 33, underwent an appendectomy on 3/31/06. Post caesarian section for birth of her twins in on 8/5/08, cancer was detected in her uterus. Investigation of pathology slides from the 3/31/06 visit revealed prior misdiagnosis of appendiceal mucinous cystadenoma with secondary diverticulum formation, requiring more extensive surgery and chemotherapy than would have been necessary had the proper diagnosis been timely rendered.
