Quanna Brown went to get herself a tummy tuck surgery after the birth of her second child to regain some self confidence. What she got instead though, was a lasting nightmare that, years later, she’s still trying to fix.
“I’d never had surgery before so at first I thought it was normal,” she told Metro. “I could smell it and I could see all this puss and blood like it was infected,” said Brown. Brown’s doctors didn’t do something right during the surgery, and the woman was left with an infected, disfigured, wound.
“The doctor said he’d never seen anything like this before and gave me antibiotics. But my parents demanded that they fix me. My insides were opened and I was ripped. He redid the wounds and sent me home. The next time I went back in wasn’t there and his partner looked at me but also sent me home afterwards.”
Brown was taken to the emergency room the following day after being unable to move.
“They saved my life,” she said of the emergency room doctors. “I barley remember it. I just remember one of the doctor’s face, she was looking so angry at what happened to me.”
“When I got released from Hospital, I wasn’t able to walk straight and I was on a cane, I was back and forth in hospital with blood clots, I spent two more weeks in hospital and I still wasn’t feeling well, and I had to do something,” she added.
“My turning point came when my daughter asked for a bowl of cereal and I couldn’t get it for her.”Brown said she’s now pregnant with her third child.
“‘I take care of my kids, they are my main concerns. I’m excited for my miracle baby and I am excited to just be alive,” she said.
