A Lagos based mother of two identified as Oyin Oladipupo has taken to social media to demand justice as she calls out popular hospital after surviving blood clot that almost killed her.
According to Oyin, Budo specialist Hospital located in Ajah area of the state forgot a massive gauze in her uterus after performing an operation on her.
Recounting her ordeal, she shared a video of herself in a TV news where she was seen demanding a civil action against the hospital. Captioning the video, she wrote;
”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 temperature 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!“
