Traces of cotton found in woman abdomen after operation

Published

When Irene Joyce Oluoch, 25, got pregnant with twins, she could hardly wait to hold them in her arms.

On the due date, she checked into the Jaramogi Oginga Odinga Teaching and Referral Hospital in Kisumu for a caesarean section.

“l went through the operation and all was well. I was soon discharged from the hospital and was home with my twins,” says Mrs Oluoch.

As she settled down to raising her babies, nothing could have prepared her for the health problems that lay ahead.

Traces of cotton, which had been left in her abdomen, would make her life miserable, and in devastated state.

“After six days, l started feeling a sharp pain in my lower abdomen. At first I thought it was normal to feel pains in the stomach considering I was healing after going through an operation,” says the mother of four.

Her condition got worse and soon she was grappling with a severe and prolonged coughing fit besides intense chest pains.

“I had to go back to the same hospital, where I went through a series of tests that yielded nothing,” she says, adding that she was taken to the intensive care unit when she developed breathing difficulties.

She spent three days at the ICU and another two weeks in the general ward.

“I had severe pains in the lower abdomen, and breathing difficulties, forcing me to use an inhaler. The coughs could last for five minutes, while my body swelled whenever I had a meal. I just couldn’t understand what was happening in my body,” says the second-hand shoe-seller, who had to abandon her source of livelihood because of her ill health.

She adds: “After consulting several specialists in Kisumu, a doctor recommended a CT scan and an examination of the lower abdomen.”

Her husband, Mr Bernard Oluoch, says the specialist was reluctant to reveal to them the results of the scan, “but he finally told us there were traces of cotton in the lower abdomen which needed an urgent surgical operation.”

“We went to the referral hospital with the results, and the doctor in charge scheduled the operation after a month, but it is now seven months since my wife started developing these complications,” says Mr Oluoch. The security guard quit his job to take care of his wife and children.

The couple are asking well-wishers to help them get medical attention.

According to the hospital boss, Dr Peter Okoth, the delay in attending to Mrs Oluoch was caused by the need to investigate the case and check the history of the patient.

“We are arranging to have the patient back in hospital because of the complications that have emerged,” he says.

The two are always visibly in love and Kenyans have always awed their relationship which is always blossoming. Omondi revealed that though the two are madly in love with each other, they are slightly different people.

Speaking on the Trend, she opened up about her man likes a lot of “noise” while she’s a down low person.

“Waihiga is an extrovert. He is lit. Me, I’m all about quietness. When you come in the house and I’m alone, I’ll have one electronic turned on. Waihiga will have the news on, he is listening to music and then he as like a laptop and he is working. To me that’s chaos but for him, that’s how he functions,” she said.

Omondi and news anchor walked down the aisle in 2015 in an exclusive wedding.

@jjogola ‘…funded by GOK through MOE & NG-CDF…’

‘…You raised 18M for equipping the centre…’How do you reconcile those 2? What exactly was the GOK funding? If you don’t come out with as much detail as you did for the dams, we are prone to misinterpret the whole exercise…

@JimmyJa89756016  Talk about launching computer’s museums

@gitongaraymond_ So they open a new lab and even cut the ribbon,,,, did the computers come with the new lab? Were they transferred from the old one?, why not buy the computers before launching the new lab, but who are we to answer such question
