What started the break after a night of drinking ended in the dreams of the Canadian Julia Anderson. By going out with a curl, the circulation to the legs is cut off and several surgeries to save one.
Anderson, 36, shared the story on his Facebook profile. The publication reports that In February 2020, he went out to a party and drank too manyespecially with rum and other spirits. to admit When he got home, he went out completely. and he did not know that she was laid with curled legs.
“When I woke up, I couldn’t move my legs at all.. My body was swelling with fluid and I looked like I was at least 50 pounds heavier. The paramedics had to take me to the ambulance,” the woman says.
When they arrived at the hospital, the doctors who treated her determined that she was suffering cell syndrome. This condition is described by experts a painful condition in which muscle pressure can become dangerous or fatal.
This syndrome can affect 3.1 out of 10,000 people in the Western world, with a predominance of men and young people, and can be caused by trauma, usually a car accident, or a broken bone, or from intense and repeated exercise.
After the diagnosis, Julia had to go through a series of procedures to save her leg, which involved three surgeries. He explainedThe muscle was degenerating so quickly releasing toxins into my blood so I was also on kidney dialysis and blood transfusions.Because of this, she was hospitalized for five weeks, two of which she spent in the intensive care unit.
He added that the pain of the nerves was so intense that even constant drinks of strong emollients could not relieve the sudden discomfort.
At discharge, the woman was bedridden for another three weeks and continued to use opioids for pain for another year. “So I’m lucky I still have my left leg… The pain got worse over time and now it feels like my leg has ‘fell numb’ and I’m used to it,” said Anderson.
As part of the recovery, the Canadian can’t walk properly with his left leg, so he has to do it on his toes, as if he were wearing a heel.
Embarrassed, she admits she didn’t share her story for fear of people judging her about her past drinking condition at the time of the accident. However, he took the strength to tell when he knew that something could happen.
“He will never get over being really drunk! ‘All sleep’ is dangerous! Grab some food and water and try to sober up before bed!“The woman warned.
