Many viewers and listeners described it as pathetic, others could not believe their ears as a 53-year-old woman narrated how she had to undergo three Cesarean Sections just to correct an error from a previous section.

Katherine Ossom’s narrated on Asem Yi Di Ka on Angel FM on Thursday that her ordeal began on 22nd October, 2003 when she visited the Roman Catholic Hospital in Agormanya in the Eastern Region to deliver her third child.
Her narration was part of the campaign against Medical Negligence in Ghanaian Hospitals dubbed 
Nurses at the facility who were on the day shift however failed to take care of the expectant mother forcing her to approach the nurses who came in for the night shift for help.
“I slept there over night, it was around 7:00pm that they decided to take me to the theatre…I regained consciousness only the next day after the CS. I started experiencing severe pains and when I told the doctor, he said he will ensure I am given another drug…,” she narrated.
Nana Yaa Brefo shed tears as the woman narrated her story

She said that a community nursing officer at the facility came in and injected another drug into the drip which made him sleep.
“However, after the I woke up again I felt very heavy, I complained to my husband’s younger brother who had signed on behalf of my husband for the CS to be conducted on me that I was feeling heavy. He however replied that it may be due to the drip administered to me…,” she narrated.
Madam Ossom’s started bloating after the third day on admission.
“My hands, hand and legs had all swollen…,” she said.
According to Madam Ossom, the doctors attributed this condition to a wrong medication which was given her by the community nurse.
“When I was discharged, I started experiencing severe pains in my abdomen when taking my bath and my sponge always got hooked on to something under my navel which made feel uncomfortable…I could also not even eat because of the severe pains…,” she added.
Madam Ossom said this made her to go for another scan which confirmed that the doctors had mistakenly left one of the surgical blades in her abdomen.
She was thus compelled to go for another surgery for this to be corrected.
“Days after undergoing another surgery to have this blade removed, I still had serious pains in my abdomen to the extent that I could not even carry my child…I could virtually not do anything.
“My husband took me to Dr Lamptey at High Street [in Accra] who re-examined me and gave me a report in an envelope to be given to the Doctor who performed the earlier surgeries…,” she said.
His husband then led her to the doctor who after reading the report decided to correct the error again.
But this time round, he seamed fed up with the lady and the surgeries so decided to do the unthinkable.
“After 15 minutes, he asked that I excuse him and my husband which I did…later, my husband told me that he said he was sorry because they have left something in my abdomen again.
“When they took me to the theatre, the doctor in charge of the operation told me the anesthetist in charge was not there so they decided to do the operation. I kept screaming as cut open into me…,” she said.
Unfortunately, the husband have divorced her after all these surgeries:
