What’s the big deal, doctors were wondering? This poor woman and what she is dealing with…
A woman went to the hospital to have skin cancer removed from her colon. She awoke in horror, to find that her colon had been reattached to another important body part.
Three years ago Jasminka Velkovska checked into the “8 September” City General Hospital facility in Skopje, Macedonia, for skin cancer surgery. Central European News reported that when she woke up, doctors came in and asked if she was passing gas.
Perplexed Velkovska said she told them, “Yes, but it’s coming out of my vagina.” Those same doctors reportedly told her that everything would go back to normal soon. It did not. She said at that point, “stuff had started to come out of my vagina and I was feeling scared and it was all very unpleasant.”
She requested an X-ray, which proved that much more happened while she was under the knife than she’d expected. The report said that Velkovska’s colon and vagina had been intertwined and connected, causing her to pass gas from her vaginal opening. To make things worse, the malignant skin cells had not been removed.
Velkovska was confused, hurt, and not sure where to turn so she hired attorneys to represent her case. CEN reported that Velkovska and her lawyers reached an agreement with the hospital managers outside of court for approximately $33,000. She has only been paid two-thirds of the agreed-upon amount and is still waiting for a final payment of about $11,000.
Velkovska plans to file a civil suit if this is not settled soon, and, of course, has to have the skin cancer procedure, again. She will definitely choose another hospital this time, though.
People are horrified, understandably, at this story. Here is what they are saying:
