I was on my way to the gift store to surprise my wife on our third anniversary. But on my way I was hit by a heavy vehicle and lost consciousness on the spot. Fortunately, some passersby took the initiative and brought me to the ER at Kamineni Hospitals.
There were multiple small puncture wounds over my right arm, lacerations and abrasions over the elbow and knee joints. X-rays showed fracture of my right shoulder bone and left thigh bone and several other minor fractures as well. The doctors also found a few internal injuries and ruptures, including the colon, which they explained was causing internal bleeding.
I was immediately taken up for an exploratory laparotomy and diaphragmatic repair and a team led by Dr. Y. Srinivas performed a splenectomy. They gave me transfusions to stabilize my blood profile and treated my fractures as well.
After a full and gradual recovery, I am grateful to be back with my family, and spending time with them is now my no. 1 priority.
