On 11/05/2015 Our beloved father, went in for a standard removal of stage 0 polyps of the urinary bladder into Rush University Hospital. His surgeon Dr. Lev Elterman not only punctured a hole in his bladder but also did not diagnose the perforation over the duration of 4 weeks of agony as urine was leaking out into the abdominal cavity irritating his intestines. Dr. Elterman missed classic signs of a perforation and persisted with his diagnosis of hyper reaction of the bladder, based on an old and inconclusive CT scan. This might have been due to his complete absence from his patient’s prolonged and complicated stay at Skokie hospital. After over a month of tremendous suffering while taking tons of morphine, steroids and antibiotics, having lost 25 pounds, our father was seen by another urologist in Glenbrook Hospital who diagnosed the puncture, placed a catheter and the hole closed over the course of a few weeks. Today our father is still suffering from all kind of complications caused by this horrific ordeal.
