Lagos pastor hits back at hospital for removing wife's womb

28 September 2016, 17:05

Abuja - A Lagos-based pastor has accused the management of Ilogbo Central Hospital of allegedly removing his wife's womb and damaging her bladder during childbirth.

According to Punch, Pastor Chinedu Rockson claims that his wife, Chinansa, was referred to the medical facility on August 26 after it was confirmed that she could not deliver her baby at the hospital where she had previously been receiving antenatal care.

After been admitted to the hospital, a cesarean section was performed on the 42-year-old mother following which Chinedu was made to sign documents pertaining to the removal of his wife's womb.

Chinedu claims that he was not informed of the removal and became concerned when he found his wife with a tube inserted into her bladder after the operation.

Chinedu claims his wife was later detained for two weeks at the facility over a N50,000 bill.

The tube inserted into Chinansa's bladder had not been removed after several days and upon questioning staff at the hospital, it was revealed that her womb had been removed and that her bladder had suffered damage in the process.

In reaction to the allegations, the hospital has claimed no wrongdoing, instead stating that Chinansa was in a bad condition when she first arrived at the facility.

"We discovered that to save her life, we would need to do a surgery. At surgery, we discovered that her uterus had burst, which had also affected her bladder.  We first stopped the bleeding and then made some repairs. It was after all these that we discovered she could not control her urine," Dr Femi Obileyi, a director at the hospital, stated.

An investigation into the matter is allegedly currently underway.
