Lois Walker, 37, has experienced severe pain in her stomach for 12 months.
But the doctors told her it was just a concern.
He was not diagnosed until his son Ray was born by caesarean section in 2021 stage IV cancerterminal.
Walker told the BBC she had gone to several doctors’ appointments but was only told she might have irritable bowel syndrome or hypochondria.
“I don’t know what I could have done otherwise. It was like no one wanted to listen“Calculate.
He added, “I told them ‘I feel like I’m going to die’ (of pain). I wanted them to take me seriously, because I felt something was very wrong.”
Walker wrote a letter of complaint to his GP, who declined to comment due to patient confidentiality.
Barnsley Hospital in England also said it could not comment until a formal complaint had been lodged.
‘Tumors are everywhere’
By the time Louis Walker was admitted to the hospital for the birth of her son by Caesarean section last year, surgeons discovered cancer in the ovaries, abdomen and lymph nodes.
He described, “My stomach was so bad, (there were) tumors everywhere. They said it was like a bag of sand that had opened up and spread all over.”
Walker, who has three children, said the diagnosis was a huge blow because she had just given birth to her last child.
“It was very difficult,” he said.
She added, “I didn’t want to get hung up on him, but he’s my sunshine. My kids are my goal. I want to focus on creating memories. If love saves me, I’ll never die.”
“Listen to your body”
“This could have been discovered earlier,” said his partner, Del Westo.
“It’s a bit frustrating, especially for kids. We don’t know what the future will hold for us now,” he analyzed.
Walker now encourages others to listen to their bodies and seek help when they are feeling down.
“If there’s one doctor who reads this and thinks we should do better, that’s okay,” he said.
“I don’t want anyone to go through what I’ve been through”He said.
