Surgeons mistakenly connect cancer patient's vagina to her colon

A cancer patient in n Macedonia woke from surgery to discover her vagina has been mistakenly connected to her colon.

A team of surgeons reportedly operated on Jasminka Velkovska to remove a carcinoma from her colon but it was soon discovered that the surgery had gone badly wrong.

She has not received the £25,700 which she claims the hospital had previously agreed to hand out and the woman has now gone on primetime television in Macedonia to talk about what happened to try and put pressure on the hospital's management into paying what they owe her.

The surgery gaffe took place when Jasminka was a patient at the 'September 8th' Hospital in the city of Skopje, the capital of Macedonia, three years ago.

Staff at the September 8th Hospital took her for an X-ray scan, which showed that her colon and her vagina were indeed tied together and worse, her carcinoma was still there.



Jasminka needed to have surgery again to remove the growth but she opted for it to take place in another hospital.

Her lawyers and hospital management then reached an agreement outside of court, whereby she would be handed a sum of £25,700 in compensation for her ordeal.

But Jasminka says the money has still not been paid in full and that there are still £8,564 that have not been paid.

Hospital Manager Sasho Stojcev claimed that the hospital cannot pay the damage without a court order, adding that the compensation was only partly covered by their insurance company.

The remaining £8,570, Stojcev says, does not have to be paid off by the hospital. This is reportedly because the compensation was not fully covered by the insurance company and the document allegedly does not state who exactly should pay it.

Jasminka is reportedly unhappy with the hospital's excuses and said that if they do not pay up soon, she and her family plan to sue the hospital.
