Default Misdiagnosed with Chrohn's desease

Massachusetts

I was misdiagnosed with Chrohn's desease 5 years ago but I was just recently told That I didn't have the desease. Meanwhile my life has been tirned upside down. I am financially in debt with medical bills.
I was layed off from my job three days after getting out of the hospital for 4 days.
$130 000 in medical and taxes I owe $10,000. The medication they gave me left me messed up.
What can I do?

I wish to inform you that you may claim compensation for wrong diagnosis. You may thus first give notice to other party regarding compensation and wrong diagnosis and if other party refuses to compensate then you may file lawsuit seeking compensation and may present expert opinion of a doctor to prove your charges. A doctor may inform exactly where there has been wrong diagnosis and error committed by your hospital including its staff.

you must prove malpractice, direct liability and several other things. Consult a med mal attorney locally.

I think I have been misdiagnosed as well.
But I cant afford to go to another doctor. I have just one choice in network.
Would a med mal lawyer (as you call them) pay for costs of a second opinion as well?

I do not think most lawyers will get involved that early.
It is possible but most want you to bring a case showing some kind of damages or negligence and then they will assess to see if it is worth the time and effort of a court case.
Here you are speculating you might have a wrong diagnosis.

But if you can find a lawyer specializing in that area you might ask him what steps you could take; he may even have a local doc he recommends that you could see for free.

I would tend to agree with the above poster, you can't just go on a fishing expedition you really need to come to them with some initial evidence that there was a medical misdiagnosis or other problem.
