Obamacare: Swedish Government Run Health Care has Man’s Penis Amputated after Misdiognosed & Delayed Treatment
The ghost of Obamacare future … misdiagnosed UTI turns into penile amputation. Who needs death panels when you have penile amputation.
So you want Obama government run health care America, eh? You might want to checks out what happened to a man who received medical care from the Swedish government run health care system. A man in his 60′s was misdiagnoses with a UTI, then was screwed around with delays in treatment and hospital visits, later learned he had cancer. Welcome to the future of government run health care in the US and Obamacare. Rumor has it, men are leaving Sweden in droves to get health care out of the country.
Paging Dr. Obama …
The man, who is in his sixties, first visited a local clinic in Blekinge in southern Sweden in September 2009 for treatment of a urinary tract infection,the local Blekinge Läns Tidning (BLT) reported.
When he returned in March 2010 complaining of foreskin irritation, the doctor on duty at the time diagnosed the problem as a simple case of inflammation.
After three weeks passed without the prescribed treatmentalleviating the man’s condition, he was instructed to seek further treatment at Blekinge Hospital.
But it took five months before he was able to schedule an appointment at the hospital.
When he finally met with doctors at the hospital, the man was informed he had cancer and his penis would have to be removed.
He had to wait how long in order to be seen? I am really glad that he had healthcare coverage, too bad there was no care. Swedish government run healthcare for everyone … if you dare use it. The beauty of “universal” healthcare. Everyone covered and the healthcare ain’t worth butkus.
The debocle has now been reported to the National Board of Health and Welfare (Socialstyrelsen) under Sweden’s Lex Maria laws, the regulations governing the reporting of injuries or incidents in the Swedish health care system. According to reports, it remains unclear if the man would have been able to keep his penis had the cancer been detected sooner. Of course that would be the case when you dare question a government run health care system. This is what you have to look forward to under Obamacare. No wonder 60% of Americans want to have Obamacare repealed.
