You have got to be kidding.. right? No?

How's this for a twist?

1. Man diagnosed with pancreatic cancer - given one year to live.

2. Man stops paying mortgage, quits job, spends all his savings, family trips, lives life to the fullest - even makes funeral arrangements.

3. Man notices symptoms going away.

4. Man told he was misdiagnosed - it's inflammation of the pancreas, not cancer.

5. Man left bankrupt, in dire straits, but alive.

Talk about a rollercoaster. A great wave of relief followed by dawning realization and terror.

He's asking for compensation, and failing that will sell his house and/or sue the hospital. I don't think he'll win, but you gotta have some sympathy for the guy.
