My father-in-law had a catheter implanted by Dr. Lash. When he left he had no idea how to care for the bag, he had nothing to strap it to his body so it was dragging and leaking on the floor. He said it was extremely painful , so he took it out. Then he was just leaking from the tube all over himself for 3 days. When they finally got us in to get a new bag, they had no bags that fit the tube, so it's taped on, leaks, and must be retaped 3 times a day, which he can't do himself due to neuropathy

My husband passed away from ureter Cancer on September 9, 2012. He was a patient of Dr. Lash for two years before being diagnosed. It was not Lash however who diagnosed him. Lash kept treating him for an enlarged prostate even though my husband kept telling him he thought there was something more and couldn't he do more tests. Lash ignored him. If we had known then that the first sign of this Cancer was peeing blood we would have gotten another doctor because Lash ignored this. Always get second
