Woman complains of medical negligence, doctors say no
Srinagar, Sept 5: A 39- year-old woman complained that she has developed complications after undergoing two surgeries at Lal Ded Hospital. The doctors however refuted the allegations saying she had “some congenital problem” but that they were still willing to provide her assistance in treatment.
Sakina (name changed) a mother of two kids from Wuthriwunni, Budgam complained that she had undergone the surgeries at LD Hospital which put “her life to risk.”
She said that her uterus was removed in April 2010 at LD Hospital in which her urinary bladder was “badly damaged”. In order to treat the damaged bladder, she said she was again operated at the hospital in December 2010.
“I was operated twice and in both surgeries by the same doctor, my internals covering my Uterus and Urinal tract were cut. I have no control on passing urine. It leaks anytime abruptly. My life has become hell,” Sakina told Greater Kashmir.
When contacted the LD Hospital medicos ruled out any negligence on their part. The medicos said that "there was a natural congenital weakness in the patient’s Urinal Bladder Neck that causes the uncontrolled leakage of urine."
“The patient has a Bladder Neck Incompetence and Urinary Incontinence. When Uterus is removed, it results in the loss of support of patient’s Urinary Bladder,” the medicos said.
“The patient has a natural weakness in her urinary bladder neck. In order to strengthen the urethra muscles, we did a Kelly’s Surgery to the patient and have recommended a sling surgery in order to control the uncontrolled leakage of urine,” they added.
Meanwhile as a goodwill gesture some doctors at LD Hospital said "we are ready for any kind of help to the patient in her future treatment."
