Family files suit after wrong kidney removed
When Glenn Hermes learned that he had cancer in one of his kidneys early last year, he agreed to have surgery to remove his left kidney before it had a chance to spread.
He checked into Plaza Medical Center in Fort Worth and his left kidney was removed. Hermes thought it was a crisis averted.
