A Nigerian lady, Oyin Oladipupo has called out a hospital in Lagos with claims that they forgot a massive gauze in her uterus after an operation.
The realtor, who is demanding justice, recounted her experience with the words;
”On 25th october 2017,I walked with my 2 legs walking normally into the theatre at Budo specialist Hospital.Anasthetist pierced me over 12 times in a bid to locate the spot for spinal block .Right after the surgery I lost functionality of my right leg and ability to feel temprature or pain from my right breast to my feet.
The hospital didnt pay attention post partum for 5 days.i didnt walk or move around.The leg started to swell and I went in for the MRI scan on the 31st October. It was seen that my spinal cord had been affected.
Nov 6,early hours I threw an embulos(pulmonary embolism )meaning that I wasnt given blood thinners and I got blood clot from my leg that blocked my lungs and my heart started failing.i was on oxygen for close to 2 weeks.
December 7th I was discharged with a smelly vigina odour and a big sore at back of my feet (caused from pressure socks).I was given different brand of antibiotics.
December 17 I went back to the hospital to insist on a scan only to realise that they had left a massive gauze in my uterus.
Till date:spent all my savings on physiotherapy and follow ups.all I want is justice!“
