Is this right?

I was in prison, and discovered that I had testicular cancer. It was 2 mo. before I had my left testicle removed. It was malignant and after surgery I was given no aftercare at all, besides aspirin and some antibiotics. I was placed back in population and started bleeding from getting in and out of triple bunkbeds, and going to chow, and counting in line every hour and a half. I had a large hemotoma under my inscision and my cavity in my scrotum filled with blood. I was still given little treatment and was in pain. It was not drained and I have a large mass of dried blood inside my scrotum now. I have not recieved any further treatment since my release two weeks ago. My tumor markers were tested and the markers indicate that it is good and out. What would normal treatment be for this type of situation? I am now in the process of releasing my records from the prison and will try to find out what I should do. I was in prison for drinking and driving and have a great deal of remorse. I am a family man and have a life. I was given no information during this whole ordeal and am still somewhat traumatized from not knowing what was going on in prison. They kept me in the dark as much as possible. Was the way I have been treated neglectful? I realized something was wrong in april and I am just now feeling better completely. Other than a great deal of discomfort from the large mass of blood in my scrotum. A man in with simular circumstances, that had no immediate treatment just prior to me, nearly died. He had to have many lymph nodes removed and also one lung. I know for a fact that this was from neglect. Anyway...I am reaching out to find answers and want to know if anyone has any knowledge or advice/opinions or information pertinent to my inquiry. Thanks for reading. Jim
