Catherine Zeta-Jones is angry about her husband Michael Douglas’ recent diagnosis of throat cancer.

Failure to Diagnose Sooner

According to the New York Post, Zeta-Jones is both angry that her husband has cancer, and angry at the doctors who failed to diagnose the cancer sooner. At this point Michael Douglas has stage 4 cancer which is almost always fatal.

“It makes me furious they didn’t detect it earlier . . . He sought every option and nothing was found,” she said in an interview.
Catherine Zeta-Jones said she fears witnessing her husband lose his energy during his cancer treatments.
“I know maybe I should be stronger, but emotionally I just don’t want to see that . . . the hardest part is seeing his fatigue, because Michael is never tired,” she explains.
Chemotherapy and Radiation Treatments
CBSNews reports that Michael Douglas is presently undergoing both chemotherapy and radiation treatments for a tumor in his throat that is about the size of a walnut. He spent months trying to find out from doctors what was wrong with him, as he went from appointment to appointment complaining of ear and throat pain.
In an interview with David Letterman last week, Michael Douglas explained that while his cancer is in fact a late stage 4, it is above the neck, and that means he has an 80% chance of a full recovery.
Catherine Zeta-Jones’ anger is completely understandable. In this day and age their is no excuse for doctors taking that kind of time to diagnose throat cancer. All too often doctors brush off what patients are really telling them, and opt to treat minor illnesses that aren’t really there; learning all too late that the symptoms signified a deadly illness.
Hopefully Michael Douglas will prevail and he and wife Catherine Zeta-Jones and children Dylan, age 10 and Carys, age 7 can enjoy a long, healthy life together.
