She Looked Like She Was Pregnant With 10 Babies. But When Doctor’s Checked Her Belly They Were Shocked!
A 24-year-old Mexican woman recently went through an unimaginable experience. Her stomach swelled so much that it seemed like she was pregnant with 10 children. Everyone kept telling her that she was going to have a lot of children but the truth was totally different – and scarier as well. With time, her situation worsened to the extent that she became unable to walk, eat and even breath! Seeing this, the woman was admitted to Mexico General Hospital.
At the hospital, Dr. Erik Hanson Viana guessed at the first glance that something was not right. He sent the 24-year-old for scans and when the results came back, an extremely scary truth unveiled. The scans showed a gigantic ovarian cyst in the belly of the woman. The cyst, which was later found to weigh an unbelievable 33 kg, started to badly compress two of her main blood vessels.
“It was so large that it took up 95 percent of the patient’s abdomen,” Dr. Viana said in an interview. The unbelievably huge cyst had created a life threatening situation. The doctors said that there were high chances of the patient getting a heart attack any moment. That’s why it became necessary for the doctors to immediately conduct an emergency surgery.
The surgeons came up with two options at that time. They either slowly drain the cyst of liquid and then carry out an operation for removing the remnants, or they remove it completely by conducting an extremely risky surgery. Although the latter option was definitely riskier and was also sure to leave a big scar on her body, the woman still opted for that. “To remove it whole is also difficult because the cyst wall is less than 1 millimeter thin and needs to be prevented from drying out, otherwise it could easily break too,” Dr. Viana explained.
And since about 20 percent of giant cysts are malignant in nature, even a micro crack could have ended with seeping of the content the spreading of abnormal cells into her body. But the surgeons perfectly executed the risky operation and they removed the cyst safely without any serious complications. After the operation, the woman’s stomach returned back to its normal size.
Surprisingly, the 24-year-old was able to leave for her home just after two days of surgery – 33 kg lighter. Although the woman had some bad scarring and plenty of excess skin, they were definitely small prices to pay for her life. “A big part of what we do is the gratification you feel when you could change a person’s life completely, and knowing they would never forget you, even if they forget to say thank you,” Dr. Viana said.
After six months, the woman visited the hospital for a routine follow-up. Thankfully, she could walk around like any normal person, without the need of sticks or any other walking assistance. She was as healthy as she had ever been, thanks to the amazing doctors. It’s really impressive what the team of doctors led by Dr. Viana was able to accomplish. They certainly deserve more than just words of appreciation for saving this woman’s life!
