J'aurais donc dû, docteur!

Self-diagnosis… whether to save time, or for fear of the results, it’s become a standard practice for most of us. Often the mysterious bump, bruise, or feeling goes away and life resumes as normal. But for some, ignoring an ailment ends with catastrophic consequences. Renovations leading to poison in the blood, an infected spot resulting in a skin cancer, an infection turning into paralysis…. They may sound like urban legends, but these are the real life horror stories doctors see everyday… all because someone waited too long. J’AURAIS DONC DÛ, DOCTEUR ! (I Waited Too Long) is a documentary series that brings to life the most dreadful cases of everyday people who could have prevented their own misfortune, if only they had visited a doctor sooner.
