Bungling docs sewed up woman’s bowel during hysterectomy op – The Daily Record — Yikes, exactly how does this even happen?
A GRANNY is suing health chiefs after surgeons stitched up her bowel during a hysterectomy operation.
Lynn Main, 55, suffered terrible stomach pains and was bunged up for two weeks after the botched procedure.
Doctors dismissed the problem as constipation and advised her to eat more to get things moving.Eventually the mum-offour’s bowels ruptured and she had to undergo a further op to repair the damage. Lynn and partner Alan Scott, 60, are now taking bosses of Horton General Hospital, Banbury, Oxfordshire, to court.
Lynn, who has four grandchildren, said: “The pain in my stomach was out of control and I thought I was having a heart attack. Alan and me both knew that something was seriously wrong but none of the doctors or nurses would listen.
“We begged them to do something but they just said I needed rest or to eat properly.
