Not a debbie downer, I just think sometimes people say both positive and negative things about Buffalo whithout factual basis.

 

And you only criticize the good things (so far) on this board.

Buffalo has higher than average cancer rates and double the national average on MS. Probably not unrelated:https://buffalonews.com/news/toxic-legacy-s-time-bomb/article_600a70b3-e006-57ed-a199-096a19dede52.html

 

Interesting, I was wondering about cancer rates in the area. My parents grew up here in the area in the 40's & 50's and they have lots of stories of pollution and have experienced many family/friends and even children having and dying from cancer.

Why was the Bills staff ordering or looking at imaging of this guy's brain?  And what treatment did he get for it in Washington.  I couldn't find anything about this.

 

 

 

Compton was a free agent, the bills called 10 minutes into free agency and were his first visit. He said they were looking at him to help replace Preston Brown

 

In the interview he mentioned that on his medical records that something seemed odd to the bills and they wanted to look for them selves(bills). They performed a MRI. Said the conversation changed very quickly from signing with the bills to potentially fighting for his life. Luckily it ended up being just a cyst.

Just seemed odd they thought it was something serious and he went back to Washington and they felt it was just a cyst.

Does seem odd. He mentioned he had it taken care of so it was something. I'm guessing the redskins were known to handle players medicals very poorly even before it became public knowledge and that caused the bills and their doctors to prepare him for the worst but who knows.

 

In the same interview he said washington doctors mis diagnosed a torn hamstring and told him it was just a strain.

Does this remind you of doctor in "Any Given Sunday"?

There's no evidence he had any brain surgery in Washington as a result of the misread MRI in Buffalo.

 

Also, Compton's recent on air retelling of his hamstring injury being "missed" is at odds with what he had said before his first practice for the Skins: 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“Bro, my hamstring is bad,” Compton explained. “It’s shot.”

The two met for dinner and Compton explained everything. He’d been duct taping his leg to hold his hamstring together because he knew if the coaching staff caught wind of his injury, he’d be sent packing.

 

Compton was on the bottom of the depth chart with two guys in front of him sitting out due to injury. Compton’s chance had arrived to be on the second team defense, but his hamstring was in shambles.

 

Wherever the ball was, his No. 51 was next to it. Compton made several interceptions and was having the practice of his life while secretly playing with what they would find out later was a torn hamstring.

 

 

So if he's now claiming that the Skins "missed" a torn hamstring, he FOS, just like the MRI that apparently was misread by the Buffalo medical staff as serious, but wasn't.

UB is a huge medical school/campus.  Children's is a great hospital too.  Not to mention Catholic Health and Kaleida have a lot of facilities.

 

Buffalo is saturated with medical in proportion to population

 

Catholic Health?   You mean the one that has Sloppy Joes as one of its hospitals?

I don't see it like that. I am reading it like they did a preliminary scan saw something suspicious and told him to go get it checked out by his own doctor/specialist with a referral. As part of that they would have prepared him for it being anything from a benign cyst to untreatable cancer.

 

It would be really weird if they used an MRI by an nfl medical team as the basis to cur someone open, especially their brain.

A Radiologist who reads brain MRI's for a living would not report an MRI read that way.

Just because you have a lot of facilities doesn't mean you have the best employees.

If you aren't aware of St. Joe's reputation, than I feel bad for you if you ever have to be admitted there.  Another one of CHS hospitals(South Buffalo Mercy) isn't much better.

Much of St.Joes has been closed in recent years.

He was under Washington's insurance plan, so he went there for treatment

You think the MRI they did was the most definitive and final test before surgery (genuine question, I'm totally speculating here and looking to be taught)?

 

Just the way I think of it is they would do a test with a low false negative rate, but high false positive and then refer to a specialist and the actual surgeon that would operate for the final really highly accurate (though expensive) test...guessing that would be a biopsy or something.

Ok, but 14th best doesn't really sound like "one of the best". Not to knock anything, I just hear locals say that a lot and wonder how true it is.

I won't get into rankings besides agreeing with another poster that there are lots of good cancer hospitals around the country.  What I want to say is that most cancers are not rare exotic cancers requiring cutting edge medical treatments.  Most cancers that are caught early respond well to established treatment procedures.  My wife survived (10 years so far) her stage 2 breast cancer after surgery at Sisters Hospital in Buffalo and chemotherapy provided by an oncologist in Chautauqua County.  I'm still cancer free 3 years after stage 2 lung cancer following surgery in Sayre, PA and chemo in Corning, NY.  What good cancer centers may provide are better diagnostics for early cancers.  Standard mammography  for instance can miss a lot of stage 1 cancers because many women have what is called "dense breasts" and tumors don't show up well at all against normal tissue.  There is more sophisticated testing available at good cancer hospitals.   My wife had a mammogram 3 months before she found a lump herself.  In my case, doctors didn't pay enough attention to a spot in my lung on CT scans taken for  other reasons, or my cancer would have been diagnosed at stage 1, possibly 3 years earlier.

Most insurance plans are pretty portable, even fir out of network providers.

An MRI would be the test that would distinguish between a benign and a malignant lesion, as far as imaging goes.

 

i can’t find any source or link that says this guy had any brain surgery of any kind performed.
