Woman left comatose after brain bleeding was misdiagnosed by GP as & # 39; food poisoning & # 39;



One woman struggled for her life in a coma after a doctor was diagnosed by her doctor as "food poisoning."

Pakistani Rida Fatima married Walsall's man Arslan Qurban in February, but his happily ever after is questioned after his devastating misdiagnosis.

    Rida was immediately taken to surgery for two operations to stop two brain bleeds, identified by a CT scan.

The couple had applied for a visa so the 24-year-old could join her husband in the Midlands and start a life together in the UK, Birmingham Live reported.

On September 8, Rida visited her local doctor in Pakistan after a headache, became unbearable and subsequently received migraine medication.

Severe Brain Bleeding

The 24-year-old visited a doctor the day after a severe headache and vomiting at night.

She was then diagnosed with food poisoning.

During her visit to the hospital the following day, on September 10, Rida fainted and had a seizure on the floor.

The girl was immediately taken to surgery for two operations to stop two brain bleeds, which were identified by a CT scan.

Arslan, who was back in England at the time of his wife's collapse, flew to Pakistan to be by his side during the terrifying procedure.

Now he is asking for financial help to pay his medical bills, which are reaching £ 5,000 a week.

Rida is being treated at Shifa International Hospital in Islamabad.

RACE TO SAVE RIDA

Arslan said, "They told me that if she left more, I would have lost her.

After the second surgery, his brain was so swollen that they couldn't replace the skull.

“She was on a ventilator and went into a coma at first, but is showing signs of improvement.

“The day I saw her, she was in and out of consciousness. She would stay awake for a minute or so and then go back to sleep. "

He added, “But I sat next to her and she recognized my voice. She grabbed me by the neck and pulled me close to her. It was really emotional. "

He created a GoFundMe page to help pay for treatment, which has raised over 17,000 pounds from several generous donors.

Arslan said his wife was "perfectly healthy" before the ordeal that left her hospitalized.
