Katy, unfortunately I don¡¯t have enough information to tell you what the wrong or right option is. You have to remember that the doctors in Germany probably just did extra tests (the probably had the results from the tests done in Greece) and that it how they could come to their conclusion so quickly.
The only thing your aunt can do is to go for a second opinion in Germany. If they say the same, you will have to make peace with it. Good luck.
