Hi there,This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.
I am sorry to hear about your mother's sufferings.
Given that these symptoms were going for a long time, your mother should have been referred to a specialist for further evaluation earlier.
I guess your mother got hook worm infection which usually causes iron deficiency anemia.
Yes this can be a ground for medical malpractice lawsuit.
You will also need to discuss with a malpractice lawyer in your state.
