She continued to suffer abdominal pain and, in January 2015, a CT scan revealed a large primary tumour in her colon with nodal metastases. She died in October 2015 from metastatic bowel cancer.
We continued to act for her husband on behalf of her Estate. We established that there was a negligent failure to perform a flexible sigmoidoscopy in May 2014 that would have revealed the tumour. We recovered damages for her pain and suffering and the loss of services to her family.
