On November 8th, 2020, my daughter was admitted at the Nairobi Hospital, Kenya to do a 'simple' procedure to drain a cyst in the liver. The admitting doctor said that my daughter will be in hospital for at least 3 days. On November 10th, the surgery was done laparoscopically, and she was put back in ward. A few minutes after, she woke up in excruciating pain in her whole body, we suspected something was wrong, but the theatre staff confirmed to us that all is well and the pain will go down. A scan was done the following day and it showed her BILE had leaked in her abdomen cavity, that explained the pain and discomfort. On November 12th, she was taken to theatre to correct this leakage, and this time an open surgery was done. It was at this point that the doctor who did the open surgery, discovered that the cyst was actually in her bile duct. This is a different doctor from the one who did the initial one laparascopically. Then the healing process seemed okay, or so we thought, until about four days later, she developed a fever. Upon further investigations and scans, it was discovered that she had developed POCKETS OF PUS in her body. She was taken to theatre for yet another procedure to 'clean' up. This was done, and at this point we were ready to go home as we thought the problem was solved.
A few days later on November 26th, as she is lying on bed, still in hospital, her heart rate started dropping, and there was panic as the medics were trying to figure out what had caused this. They discovered the surgery wound was bleeding and the blood was accumulating on her right side of abdomen. To save her life, she was taken to ICU to bring up the heart rate and to give her medication to make her blood coagulate, because in the state she was in, they couldn't take her to theatre for surgery. She was given more blood while in ICU, her cardiologist managed to bring her heart rate up then another clean up surgery was done. She was in ICU for 5 days. She was discharged from hospital on December 20th, and she is now recovering at home. We are grateful to God for saving her life and showing her mercy.
