This is the true story of a surgeon who tragically loses his career after 25 years in the operating room. He is not the victim of a stroke or stray bullet, but a simple pair of common surgical latex gloves. Dr. Rod Tomczak, a talented and passionate surgeon, develops a severe allergy to latex, forcing him into early retirement. Depression sets in and Dr. Tomczak falls into a downward spiral of alcoholism and suicidal thoughts, spending nearly half of the next three years in and out of rehabilitation facilities. In this painfully honest, frank, and often pathetically humorous story, Dr. Tomczak shares the trials and tribulations of his never-ending battle to escape the unrelenting forces of clinical depression. Rod Tomczak, MD, EdD., has worked as a surgeon at Mercy Hospital in Monroe, Michigan, Des Moines University, and The Ohio State University Hospitals in Columbus. He is currently working on his next book, Pirate Doctors of the Caribbean. Dr. Tomczak lives with his wife, Gretchen, and a serenity Shitz Tzu named Simon, in Columbus, Ohio.
