Doctor Failed To Diagnose An 18-years Old Patient As She Died Of Appendicitis

Health Tips, News

An 18-year-old law undergraduate has died of complications from appendicitis — after her UK doctor failed to diagnose the ailment in three months.

By the time the ailment was diagnosed on her return to Nigeria, she needed an emergency operation — but the hospital did not have life support and she died in the process, according to her parents.

 

Kikaose Ebiye Onyibe, daughter of Magnus Onyibe — former commissioner of information in Delta state who writes a regular column for TheCable — was a second-year law undergraduate at the University of Birmingham.

 

She died on Wednesday at Gold Cross Hospital, Bourdillon Road, Ikoyi, Lagos, following an unsuccessful surgery to remove a ruptured appendix.

“Kikaose had been complaining of lower abdominal pain since October last year and had been visiting a GP in Birmingham, UK, where her school is located,” the parents said in the obituary announcement.

 

“The GP failed to diagnose the ailment correctly despite several visits in many months. Instead of conducting a scan to identify her ailment, they gave her minor pain killers whenever she visited the surgery (clinic).”
