Mia Amber Davis’ untimely death could have been prevented had her doctors been proactive about the best treatment plan for her health risks and noting how prescribing birth control pills would factor in complicating those risks, according to her widow Michael Yard.
“Her doctors should have advised [Mia] to eliminate some of her other risk factors prior to clearing her for the surgery,” Yard’s suit states.
The plus size model, actress, producer, and editor of Plus Model Magazine was 36 years old when she died a day after routinely going in for corrective knee surgery to eradicate an old sport’s injury. The young beauty, best known for her “Road Trip” cameo and the face of Jill Scott’s Butterfly bra, died May 10, 2011 of a blood clot in her lungs known as pulmonary embolism.
Mia’s widower claims his wife’s OBGYN should have suggested condoms or other methods of birth control, and not the prescribed Balziva and Zenchent, as an alternative…because the drugs “greatly increased her risk for a pulmonary embolism and ultimately caused her death.”
Yard further alleges Mia went to a family practitioner on April 18 to complain about knee pain and the doctor cleared Mia for knee surgery…despite a number of risk factors, including obesity, hyperlipidemia and the fact she was on Zenchent.
The likelihood of death for women on birth control who smoke or are overweight is minimal but one death is too many.
We hope Mia’s widow find solace in the truth he seeks.
