Hanan Mahmoud Abdul Karim gave birth to a healthy 10-pound baby boy by Caesarean section. The procedure went relatively well, and Karim was sent home with her new little bundle of joy. However, it didn’t take long for Karim to notice that something just wasn’t right.
Her condition quickly took a disturbing turn for the worse when she began experiencing excruciating pain to the point where she was unable to move. Although the C-section initially seemed like a routine procedure, Karim’s ailing health proved it was more of a botched procedure than she ever imagined.
The 36-year-old mom had absolutely no idea what was causing the pain — until she felt something vibrating in her stomach. Her family reportedly noticed the bizarre vibration coming from her abdomen, reports the Mirror.
Her mother, Majeda Abdul Hamid, recently recounted the horrific series of events that led to the shocking discovery during an interview with Gulf News.
“My daughter suffered serious pains and could not move. I brought her back to the hospital where she was treated but nothing was done for her,” the mother said.
On April 24, Karim was rushed to Al-Bashir hospital where doctors performed an emergency surgery to quickly remove the mobile phone from her abdomen, reports the Daily Mail. Although her condition has improved, she still wants the doctor to be reprimanded for his careless actions. But, unfortunately, there aren’t many records to back her claims although her family insists the surgery did indeed take place.
According to Gulf News, the Jordanian Health Ministry is refuting Karim’s claims. Spokesman Hatem Al Azrae released a statement about the shocking incident, deeming Karim’s claims “baseless” and “fabricated.” However, the ordeal is currently being investigated. Although the botched C-section is quite disturbing and officials are raising questions about the claims, there have been similar malpractice cases where doctors’ careless actions have caused serious long-term damage. No further details have been released about Karim’s case.
