Doc got sued by saving life

If a certified doctor tells you that you only have 2months to live, what would you do? Would you call for a lawyer, prepare a will??
Would you try some cocaine and get high at least once before you leave for the world??
Would you try to hijack the pentagon and launch a nuclear bomb on Iraq??
Or, would you just spend your money and enjoy yourself till the end??

I guess this guy chose the last option.. A wise move I would say..
What do you MEAN I'm not going to die?

Doc: "Hey I have some good news for you!!"
Patient: "Thats good!! I've been expecting for the worst ever since the last time we met."
Doc: "You know about the pancreatic cancer we've told you about??"
Patient: "Let me guess...Am I eligible to donate my pancreas to my annoying neighbour whom I'm trying to poison this morning??"
Doc: "My good sir...Thats double good news to you!!! Lucky for you, we do have an extra organ donation form here in my office."
Doc: "Aaaaa....Thats not it!! I think you are blessed by the constellation stars today!"
Patient: "Doc Doc Doc....Mind you words, my religion does not allow me to believe in such nonsense. Don't worry about it, it's not like I care about it or something like that. I'm gonna die anyway."
Doc: "Oh..ok... All I'm trying to tell you that today is your lucky day! Guess what?? You have a second chance in life! Apparently, we've misdiagnose you. The Pancreas Cancer that you have...is actually an inflammation of the pancreas. Nothing life-threatening."
*Patient looks at Doc in a disbelief state*
Doc: "Awww....You want a hug?? I bet you are 1 happy man by now!!"
*Patient thinks for a while*
Patient: "That's it!!! I'm gonna sue you!! See you in court!!"
*Doc thinks to himself.. Hugging must be a big crime in London. This country blows.. I'm going back to Russia for good!!*

That is how I would have imagined the conversation between the patient and the doc the 1st time I read the article.
I'm not sure if that guy did sue the hospital or something, but it'll be ironic if he did.

Totally Agree with you!!!
No one can predict death...

yea...I wouldn't know what to do either if that happens to be me..
But 1 thing for sure, I wouldn't sue the doc...

But wouldn't it be weird to sue someone who told you that everything is gonna be alrite..
I mean, its just weird to sue someone who is telling the truth...

Isn't it?
