The doctor who treated (or mistreated) my mother when she had skin cancer on her head just didn't seem to care about her. I think some doctors feel that elderly people are just throw aways. She was so undertreated that the cancer ate through her skull and she was leaking spinal fluid from her brain. This in spite of the fact that we kept going back and he kept saying she just needed to heal and that she was doing fine.
The hospital where she died was wonderful except even though she had a DNR on file, they made us make the decision to take her off life support. That was a very painful decision that she had already made so we wouldn't have to.
