My husband was diagnosed with non hodgkins lymphoma when he was 23. The hospital he was originally treated at did not disclose that his chemo regimen could leave him infertile. In fact they went about it something like this, (after the chemo had started- and he was hospitalized for a few days up until this point- including in this convo) "We usually have our patients give us a specimen because this regimen of chemotherapy can leave you infertile. We had to get a rush on your chemotherapy so we didn't have time to do so. I noticed that you already have a beautiful daughter, though." What a slap to the face. I was stunned. We both wanted more children and certainly a son to carry my husband's name. I didn't even know what to say. This was the same hospital that blew off my husbands symptoms 3 to 5 times when he had every symptom of cancer and they said, "just take tylenol. " He had 104.7f fevers. Do we have any basis to sue if his test comes back and says we can't have more children?
