The 59-year-ancient is immediately suing Australia’s Central Coast Community Health District, after he said a 2010 advertise-op evaluation shed blaze on the fake diagnosis.
“I was told that the tissue taken from me during that gastrectomy was examined through the pathology department at Royal North Shore [Hospital] and the lymph nodes that were taken outside showed no evidence of cancer,” he told the Sunday Telegraph. A second check confirmed the results.
Lord said he has suffered from anxiety and depression as a result of the surgery and can no longer eat sitting down.
“He would be seeking an apology from the hospital in terms of an admission of liability and compensation for his injuries,” Anna Walsh, Lord’s lawyer, told ABC Sydney.
Walsh told the Sunday Telegraph that a pathologist at Gosford Hospital, where the initial flub occurred, already apologized to Lord.
