Yes. Hio kitu is administered by someone called anesthesiologist. Mtu amesomea na kuiva kwa hio kazi. Plus nashuku huyo "surgeon" is the same fellow here who has an illegal abbortion clinic in Utawala.

May he rest in peace. Kenya ile upuzi iko huku ni too much. Deliberately ill equipping national hospitals ndio privates zao zipate wateja.

I know of a lady in mid 40s who lost her only kid because of anesthesia. Kid was being prepped for a minor surgery

TO make it worse, hii story ya Muslims burying same day. So imagine as a mum you're in denial you've lost your kid, coz si it's fucking anesthesia.. "Maybe he could wake up."
Elders now wanasema tukubali ya Mungu tumzike. The hospital is also supporting the elders in order to escape a potential malpractice suit.

Reminds me of Kenya's best humourist who was killed by a Thika doctor

" In early 2003 Mutahi underwent what was supposed to be a routine, minor and painless operation at the Thika District Hospital to remove a lipoma from his back. He had been assured by a surgeon friend, who had offered to do the operation, that the procedure would take less than 15 minutes. Possibly because of a blunder by the anaesthesiologist, he went into a coma from which he never awoke. His family was waiting for his condition to improve before they could fly him to London for corrective neurosurgery.

Death
Mutahi died on 22 July 2003 at the Kenyatta National Hospital after 137 days in a coma. All his life he expressed his solidarity with the average Kenyan through his refrain: "I am neither too foolish nor too clever."

It can be scary. My niglet went for a CT scan akiwa 3 months,but how that anesthesia works will scare the crap out of you. It is similar to a person dying,one second the freeloader was crying hysterically,the next thing i saw was eyes rolling back and silence.....we were given heads up that shit was going to get scary so tunaeza jiexcuse kama hatujiskii kuangalia. Till this day it haunts me

Just thinking, Do snorers snore during operations?
General anesthesia suppresses many of your body's normal automatic functions.You'll be in some kind of "vegetative state" ,a medically induced coma,so not tecnically sleeping . Functions such as those that control breathing, heartbeat, circulation of the blood (such as blood pressure), movements of the digestive system, and throat reflexes such as swallowing, coughing, or gagging ......tecnically you are in the precipice of dying in very many ways when you are under

It's more frightening now.

Anaesthesia is administered by a specialist. Most doctors would love you to believe they can do it but you have to take an extra four year course just to qualify as an anesthesiologist and that's before you have done your residency for another four year residency. Alafu jamaa anafikiria juu alisomea kwenye maini na figo ziko anaeza kudunga madawa hofyo hofyo. I doubt Kenya has more than two qualified anaesthesiologists as per international standards

That was a risky surgery he did, if my memory serves me.

Going to a private clinic for surgery is never a good idea. But pole.

Once I had a problem that I thought surgery would rectify. Private hospitals were always ready to do it but when I went to a public hospital, I discovered that surgery is always the last resort. Its like whatever happens during and after surgery, may not be reversible so you have to think very carefully before commiting to it.

Fifteen years down the line, am happy those district nurses advised me against it.

It doesn't matter where you get it. There're only 160 anaesthesiologists in Kenya. We know KNH has 24 operation theaters. Assuming all other county hospitals have one, they would need to work 24/7 without sleep to oversee every operation. But we know for a fact 77% of them wamekwama Nairobi. So the rest of the nation share 36 anaesthesiologists. I doubt anyone is brave enough to go to these shithole counties where governors like to tussle with medical stuff.

In 9 out 10 cases when you get an operation in Kenya, there's a good chance it an unqualified poser that put you under.

It does. When something goes wrong, at least be in an insitution that you can be rescued. Hizo clinic don’t even have emergency oxygen supplies.

If anything goes weong you will die right there and then. Huku si kwa movies au hollywood ati mascreen zikianza kulia beeping sounds ten expert surgeons who were lounging around will come rushing in. Most cases you're lucky that one surgeon is around. Akimalizia quota yake anatoka mbio anarudi clinic yake.

There's no army of experts holding their breathe watching you. Kakinuka wanafunganisha mwili, report inachorwa, na mwili inafungiwa mortuary hadi mlipe deni. There's not even the courtesy ya daktari kuja polepole kuwaeleza "we did everything we could." Unatulianga tu hapo waiting ukichoka uende kuulizia unaambiwa huyo alikufa enda ulipe deni mbebe mwili.
