The mother of eight children from Penza nearly died during childbirth, suddenly regaining consciousness on the operating table, according to Starhit. The woman felt all the manipulations of the doctors and could not tell them about the pain.
Doctors barely managed to save 33-year-old Ekaterina during a planned Caesarean section on February 4. The patient lost too much blood, she developed severe pulmonary edema - the count went on for minutes. The mother of many children herself claims that the anesthesia stopped working right during the operation.
“Tears begin to flow from my eyes - if only the doctors could see them! If only they would understand that I am not sleeping! No, they do not see … I hear voices talking about my high blood pressure 164 to 173, about 1170 milliliters of blood loss, my pulse is high - I myself feel a frantic heartbeat. I start to choke, I have an endotracheal tube in my mouth, the ventilator is breathing for me, but I still suffocate! Every minute there is less and less oxygen. They start to sew me up. I counted every seam - there are eight. When they pressed on the uterus so that blood would come out, I wanted to scream with all my might. Foam came out of my mouth, and I started having convulsions,”the woman says.
Ekaterina remembers how a team of doctors manually carried out resuscitation measures, shifting her to a gurney. In the first minutes, the doctors thought that the girl had a heart attack during the operation, but their fears were not confirmed. What exactly caused such a reaction of the body is unknown. The patient herself suggests that she has begun a negative reaction to one of the drugs.
The mother of many children was discharged from the hospital on February 9, now she and her newborn daughter are at home, surrounded by family, and are coming to their senses. From the maternity hospital, her husband Andrei met her with her eighth baby, with whom they have been together for 13 years.
