Louis Walker, 37, during a caesarean section.
A woman in the UK found out she had terminal cancer when she was giving birth to her third child. Lois Walker, 37, did not expect such a diagnosis. However, it was her doctor who assisted her during her caesarean section that she noticed the numerous tumors that invaded her body and she started to cry.
There, the practitioner found that the woman had cancer of the ovaries, lining of the abdomen, and lymph nodes.
The young mother said she had been suffering from severe abdominal pain for months. But her doctor told her that the symptoms she was having could be due to her stress, or even her age, and not because something was wrong inside her.
Louis Walker is 37 years old and has suffered a devastating diagnosis.
However, he decided to ask for a second opinion and went to two hospitals where he underwent a series of tests. In his first stay they advised him to avoid dairy products, since he could have an irritable bowel.
It was in 2021, when she gave birth to her third child, that the doctor who assisted her during the caesarean section discovered that the woman’s body was full of tumors. “Like a sack of sand that got ripped open and everything spilled,” described Louis. Seeing that painting, the professional broke down and started crying.
He said: “My abdomen was very sick, with tumors everywhere,” he told the BBC.
Louis Walker was misdiagnosed and is now months to live.
Despite the 37-year-old woman having undergone six chemotherapy sessions and two surgeries, doctors say so “There is no way to stop the disease.” Louis says the only thing he has left is to have a comfortable life for the rest of his life. “I wouldn’t want anyone to go through what I’m going through,” lament.
“I leave three children”
Lois wanted to show her total disappointment and denounced the doctors and health workers. “It was absolutely devilish. They call themselves health professionals and they should take care of us, but it’s negligence. I feel like he could have been caught sooner, so I wouldn’t have this late diagnosis and I’ll go three kids behind,” she said in one. interview with the BBC.
Dale Wistow, the woman’s partner, was also devastated: “It’s all very sick, especially for the children. We don’t know what the future holds,” he reasoned.
