Media personality and talk show host Emma Ugolee has shared a near-death experience he had while on medical tourism in India.
Ugolee had embarked on a trip to India to get a kidney transplant after his own kidneys could not support him again after several dialysis. His sister’s kidney was a perfect fit for him so she decided to donate the organ to him.
Fast forward to the Indian hospital where the surgery was supposed to take place, his sister’s kidney meant for him was swapped with another one.
It only took months for his health to relapse after some complications began with the incompatible organ.
‘6weeks later we are wheeled out of the surgery room. A test called the creatinine test used to tell that the kidney was doing great was never passed. My fears were allayed by the doctor who said it would take a while. So we came home. Weeks later, the while never came. My doctor in Nigeria gets worried and orders a biopsy and a scan.
The results to my ears in his words: “Emmanuel there is no way in God’s green earth that this is your sisters kidney inside you. Not with size and functionality.” So it was that my sisters kidney was swapped during the surgery’, he wrote on Instagram.
