Women Recount Horror of Family Planning Camp in Hyderabad – The New Indian Express

By Express press service

HYDERABAD: G Shulamithi, 26, is among 34 women who underwent the double-puncture laparoscopy (DPL) in the family planning camp organized by the state government on August 25. After marrying at an early age, she bore four children, including three girls and a boy, and eventually decided to undergo sterilization surgery when an ASHA worker insisted. This routine procedure quickly turned into a nightmare, as four women who had the operation with it died after developing complications.

The remaining 30 women are now being admitted to various hospitals as part of precautionary measures. According to doctors and doctors deployed by the state government, the condition of these women is stable. However, some of them still complain of abdominal pain.

Shulamithi said one of the dead women was lying next to her in the post-operative room. “The surgeon came 30 minutes after being anesthetized by a nurse. I was second in line. A nurse took me inside. The doctor performed the operation and within three minutes I was moved to another room. I felt like my organs were being pulled outside,” she added. “No one attended to me until the nurse came and told me to come home,” she said.

“Laparoscopic surgeries in these camps are done in five minutes because they use local anesthesia,” said a senior gynecologist working at a government hospital. “It takes at least half an hour for the same operation in a public or private hospital because general anesthesia is used there,” she added. According to her, the number of cases the doctor performed that day or the day before should not be a problem, because doctors even perform 400 to 500 such surgeries in a single day. Even though there is no mention of age in the guidelines provided by the central government, the gynecologist believes that DPL can be performed safely on women over the age of 22.

Surgery is taught to all senior residents in the state. However, only a few very experienced people are called upon by the state to operate on women in the medical camps. Currently, there are four such doctors. Only one of them, under contract, carried out the operations in Ibrahimpatnam.

“Two to three days after the operation, we received a call from the hospital. They told us to get admitted because we might have an infection,” said S Mamatha, 22. All the women were first admitted to the Ibrahimpatnam Community Health Center. As a precaution, they are now subjected to elevated antibiotics. “We just treated the pus they developed on the wound,” a doctor treating these patients told NIMS.

REGISTRATION TEMPORARILY CANCELED
Chairman of the Telangana State Medical Council, Dr V Rajalingam said, “The doctor is very experienced and qualified. He is a retired general surgeon specializing in MS and has performed thousands of surgeries during his government service. The TSMC has temporarily canceled his registration and it will be revoked if he is found guilty.
