Many people are facing many problems even after recovering from Coronavirus, one person had to lose his leg due to Corona.
- lost leg due to corona infection
- blood clots due to lack of oxygen
- Doctors saved life by cutting leg
New Delhi: Even after recovering from Coronavirus, many people are suffering from various diseases. But one such case also came to light in Delhi in which a patient lost his leg due to corona virus infection. All this happened because they could not get oxygen at the time of need.
- Oxygen level kept on decreasing 40
Vivek Bahl, 51, a resident of Delhi, was infected with the Coronavirus in the month of May during the second wave. During this, the fever persisted for 8-10 days, but at that time the condition of the hospitals was very bad. No beds were available, nor was oxygen being arranged for the needy on time. Vivek’s oxygen had also come down to 40 by decreasing. After being disappointed from all sides, Vivek reached a gurudwara in Indirapuram, Ghaziabad and somehow got oxygen there.
- blood clots from the legs to the lungs
Even after getting oxygen, the oxygen level could only come down to 90. After that, when he somehow got a bed in Max Hospital, by the time he reached there, his right leg had turned blue. At the time of examination in the hospital, the oxygen level was between 70-80. According to the doctors, there was no option but to amputate the right leg. The leg had turned completely black and blood clots had formed in the leg which had traveled from the legs to the lungs.
- effect on kidney
Vivek’s kidney also started getting affected. Surgeon Dr Sunil Choudhary at Max Hospital performed foot surgery and Dr Ashish Jain, who was treating Corona, gave medicines and worked to remove the rest of the blood clots present in the body. The blood clots in the lungs were removed with medicine but it was difficult to save the legs, so a leg had to be amputated. Till now Vivek has to come to the hospital because now he has got prosthetic legs and is learning to walk again.
