Surgery leaves 22-year-old man with bloated belly
A 22-year-old man is experiencing severe pains and has developed a swollen belly after surgery at the Greater Accra Regional Hospital.
In an interview with Class FM, Harrison Gbisanya, said he was referred to the hospital after visiting two facilities in the capital, including the 37 Military Hospital and the Polyclinic.
Gbisanya, who could not hold back his tears, said after examination, doctors concluded he needed an open surgical procedure – which he underwent on January 13, 2018.
After successfully going through the surgery, Mr Gbisanya said he started feeling pains in the part of his stomach where the surgery was conducted.
“I first went to Maamobi Polyclinic for treatment and they gave me some medication. But the situation was not getting better, and, so, I went back to that same hospital. But the doctors referred me to the 37 Military Hospital for treatment.
“The doctors at 37 Military Hospital also referred me to Ridge Hospital because they had a lot of patients. It was at the Greater Accra Regional Hospital that the doctors said given the nature of my situation, they had to conduct a surgery on me.
“The nurse then took my particulars, checked my vitals and the doctors eventually carried out the surgery. But later, I started feeling pains at where they did the surgery, and, so, I went back to them and met a different doctor who assessed the wound and instructed that it be dressed.
“I was admitted that night and the doctor who actually carried out the surgery came the following morning and saw my condition and gave me other prescriptions. He gave me injections on my stomach and discharged me.
“But the situation has not been good since I left the hospital, I have no money on me to go for treatment again, and, so, I appeal to the general public to assist me”.
