He walked in the operation room to never walk again.He said,if he was smart enough he would had walked away from hospital that day.
Life,as usual threw a lemon but that was not making a lemonade moment,so I did not said a word.
He was diagnosed and treated for abdominal aneurysm.After surgery,his life changed from being on two feet to being paralysed hip down.
I saw his daily struggle for each and every drug,prescription,intervention we recommended.He always asked question,always refused in the beginning and always agreed in the end.As time went by I felt for him,who would not do what he was doing by going through what he had gone through.A tragedy of life;never to walk again.
Sometimes tomorrow's headline can be avoided but in his case a news became a tragedy.
To some,our disclosure in terms of risks versus benefit of an intervention is just a talk,nothing happens.To others,the worse possibility happens like winning a tragedy lottery.
