A surgeon who told a patient he had successfully removed her brain tumour and urged her not to seek further treatment had in fact not removed it, a misconduct hearing has heard.

Emmanuel Labram allegedly convinced his patient that she was healthy for two years after operating a tumour growing at the base of her brain. By the time she sought private help, her tumour was inoperable, according to the Times.

Mr Labram is now appearing before a Medical Practitioners Tribunal Hearing.

How does a person live with themselves after doing something like that? Especially a Doctor.

Trust, but doubt.
I'm more interested in why he would lie to her. If they went through the trouble of having the actual surgery, why not remove the tumor?

Uh I believe they usually capture the whole surgery in video and photograph the tumour for evidence purposes everytime they perform such large scale surgery, or do they not?

> If they went through the trouble of having the actual surgery, why not remove the tumor?
I believe it's a very complicated surgery. The surgeon is probably lacking in confidence that his patient will survive.

Or maybe he's just incompetent and thought that he'd actually removed the tumor completely. I mean, he is a doctor.

Then it wouldnt have been a lie.
If you're quoting the title of the article, then I don't think you should be making that assumption off of a journalist's inadequate literary skills. It's placed in quotes because it's an assumption they've made, and apparently it's alright to write articles based around opinions and beliefs instead of fact these days.

Swim, fishies. Swim through the veil of steel.
Well the article says he "removed four fragments". That implies he knew the surgery wasn't complete.

ALL OF YOU BE QUIET!

Now, that's over... He thought he had removed the tumor by removing the four segments, four pieces, more often than not, makes a whole. She had a second and third MRI scan, and the Doctor noticed that there was a tumor there. That's when the Doc lied to the patient, not before nor after. He also thought that by removing the four segments, he had removed the tumor.

It all is very clear if you'll actually read it.

But he still lied to her. So, how can you trust a doctor/ surgeon again "?
What, are you saying that she can't trust the new doctors telling her it's still there? I'm pretty sure they can just show her the MRIs and point it out to her to give her a good idea for her ownself.

Oh Shi.. Don't wake the tiger!
What, are you saying that she can't trust the new doctors telling her it's still there?
Doesn't matter he removed the segments, He still lied to her "that he removed the tumor."
So, how can she trust him again after that. eh?

He allegedly operated on the woman at Aberdeen Royal Infirmary in September 2008, where instead of removing the legion, which at the time of discovery in 2007 was an inch in diameter, he removed four fragments.

Seriously, if the four fragments are not the tumour then what bloody 4 fragments could he have possibly removed... from the brain?!
Maybe that's why the patient become brainless enough to sue the doctor afterwards.

No, wait. Am I supporting the doctor now?

    Are we still on the topic of failing? I failed lots!

    If you ever want to talk about it we're here. The way I see it, you're still around. That required a few very difficult successes if you ask me:)
  • Varine Varine:
    I posted a thing here a while ago about my failures if it makes you feel better to hear about other people failing. Drugs and whatnot, I had a lot more fun than was healthy. I'm still a failure, but very few of us actually get to be the self made billionaire. Luck is the only thing that will take you as far as already having money a lot of the time, and the easiest way to get catch that is with a very wide net and the willingness to let other things loose.

  • jonas jonas:
    Eh. Don't define success as being a billionaire or even millionaire. Success is about overcoming your personal challenges. And if you can get to a place in life where you can love yourself, that is winning it big time
  • jonas jonas:
    Being a billionaire probably sucks, you can't go out in public like a random person anymore and you always need a bunch of big guys following you around discreetly
  • jonas jonas:
    And you'll never know if anyone you know really likes you or is just seeing you as a big money sack
  • jonas jonas:
    Most of the best fun I've ever head was with a group of friends eating pizza or drinking a good 10$ bottle of wine, when I had maybe 100$ on my account. Or the time when I was so broke, my friends visited me with bags of ingredients and I cooked for us, because I didn't have money to buy ingredients anymore
