Misdiagnosed: Was My Wife a Casualty of America's Medical Cold War?

Front Cover
Cosimo, Inc., Jan 1, 2001 - Health & Fitness - 232 pages
Following two broken marriages and her mother's suicide, Jane came into the happiest time of her life with a new love -- only to have it end tragically. Her death certificate states that she died of "metastatic carcinoma of unknown primary" -- medical lingo for a cancer whose source remains a mystery. That explanation fails to reveal how Jane was placed in harm's way by health-care practitioners who belittle one another's valuable skills, refuse to cooperate, misdiagnose (or make no attempt to diagnose), and who believe that their treatment plan is the only plan, thereby putting the patient at risk. This poignant story, told through Jane's private journals by her author husband, is a cautionary tale for everyone caught in the crossfire of America's medical "cold war." Book jacket.
