This patient is/was making a big mistake and is wrong, imo
We do, in fact have control over what they do...

I am a case in point...I was given 3 months, 6 tops, to live after a CAT scan and diagnosis of stage 4 lung cancer...a rare one...diffuse bronchioalveolar lung cancer...they said ...no cure...not chemo, not radiation, not surgery..
They wanted to do an expensive test, invasive and somewhat dangerous...a bronchoscopy...
After questioning all 5 doctors on the panel, I chose not to....for two reasons, I didn't agree with their opinions and ...why do it??..they said they wouldn't be able to do anything anyway..
I chose not to do it...my body, my choice, my bank account!!
Went with X rays and sputum tests for 6 months

Long story short..I didn't have it and am somehow alive 15 years later.
It was the after effects of pneumonia..as I had suggested to them many times.
*note, some progress has been made in treating it...
however>>
median survival time for diffuse bronchioloalveolar carcinoma was 4.3 months (p = 0.0002).

She said>>

“I don’t monitor how doctors do their jobs. I just trust that they’re doing it well.”

“I don’t monitor how doctors do their jobs. I just trust that they’re doing it well,” she said. “I have to believe that — I’m not a doctor and I can’t control what they do.”

**if one reads about the serious mistakes doctors and hospitals make...it almost makes one shudder...
