    Woman claimed ODD feeling in her chest

    She claimed for YEARS an odd sensation...

    For seven years before her death, Bonnie Valle told her family and her doctors she had an odd feeling in her chest.

    The feeling turned out to be a surgical towel that had been left behind during a 1995 surgery and wasn't found until a year after her death, when medical students opened her chest cavity.



    Valle's daughter, Jeanne Clark, says her mother donated her body to the Northeastern Ohio Universities College of Medicine in Rootstown, Ohio, because she hoped doctors would be able to learn more about the emphysema that killed her.

    darn...

    Darn , those medical professionals sure do get forgetful sometimes.
    This is my opinion, and change is good.

    Can you IMAGINE!

    Just think - if she hadn't donated her body to science, no-one would have ever known what she really died of.

    I hope her family sued!
