Dr. Arun Prasad
Dr. Arun Prasad, who performed the operation on the woman at the private Indraprastha Apollo Hospital in Delhi, India, said he was “shocked” by the tumor.
The doctor said he had never seen a case like this in his 30-year medical career.
After performing the operation on Saturday, Dr. Prasad: “I’ve never seen anything like it in my job – in over three decades of experience.
“We should consider it a miracle that a woman is recovering well after an operation lasting more than 180 minutes.”
The woman hospitalized for surgery in India for COVID-19 cases had gained 106 kg before her surgery.
But nearly half that weight was due to the weight of the huge benign tumor that was squeezing her ovary.
The tumor could have caused her ovary to explode if it hadn’t been treated. The patient complained that she could not walk because her feet were swollen.
She had also started to suffer from severe anemia, which caused her hemoglobin to drop – which turned out to be a major challenge for the team of surgeons.
The woman had to have a blood transfusion before the doctors could operate.
Dr. Prasad said, “With low hemoglobin, it was a big job for doctors.
“However, we did our best and finally got it right.”
Another doctor involved in the operation, Abhishek Tiwari, said he was “pleased” that the patient had recovered quickly.
He said, “She is lucky that the organs haven’t failed. Otherwise such pressure could have been fatal for the patient.
And Dr. Prasad praised his team of surgeons for their “wonderful” job.
He said, “I see it as an incredible achievement in the way the operation was done.
“There was no room for error. The team has made commendable efforts to say the least.
The patient should leave the hospital the day after her operation – which Dr. Prasad called it a “miracle”.
