Ufomba Onyinyechi

 

Ufomba is a native of Umuogele Ntigha in Isiala Ngwa North. In 2014, she fell ill and sought medical help. The doctor diagnosed her with malaria and typhoid and prescribed injections. However, after taking the injections, she noticed painless rashes on her legs. Within two days, her legs swelled up, and the pain became unbearable. She returned to the hospital for more tests, hoping for answers. Unfortunately, she was told that it was just an infection and that she was not diabetic.

This health issue soon became a major obstacle in Ufomba’s life. She could no longer walk freely, which greatly affected her education. Desperate for a solution, she visited multiple hospitals, but none could provide the relief she sought. Instead, her legs began to decay, emitting a foul odor. The situation became so dire that a doctor at Dickson Orthopedic Hospital in Aba advised her to amputate one of her legs to prevent further complications, such as cancer.

Ufomba made the difficult decision to have her leg amputated in 2015, hoping it would save her life. However, life has not been easy for her since then. To make ends meet, she makes perfumes and disinfectants. She also needs capital to expand her business.

The emotional and physical toll of losing a limb has been overwhelming. Ufomba’s story is one of resilience and the ongoing struggle to adapt to a new reality. She recently underwent a re-amputation to her stump. She is 35 years old.

At the age of five, Lawrence attended a nearby nursery school in her area. One day, after returning from school, she started crying, complaining of pain in her leg. Lawrence’s mother initially thought it was just a result of rough play at school and tried to massage her leg to alleviate the pain. However, the pain persisted, and Lawrence was unable to walk with her leg for several days.

As the days went by, Lawrence’s leg began to decay, causing great concern for her family. They sought help from various sources but were unable to find a solution. In desperation, Lawrence’s mother took her to church, where the pastor informed her that it was a spiritual attack caused by stepping on a charm placed by their neighbor.

With no other options available, Lawrence’s mother took her to Igbobi  Hospital. The doctor informed her that in order to save Lawrence’s life, her leg would need to be amputated. Lawrence’s parents, determined to do whatever it took to ensure their daughter’s survival, sold their valuables and raised the necessary funds for the surgery.

A second surgery was required, and with the support of fasting and prayers from her family, Lawrence miraculously survived.

Ogunbowale Deborah Adebimpe

She is a 100-level Nursing student at Fountain University Osogbo, experienced a tragic incident on September 18, 2021. She sought permission to go to the market with her roommate. While riding a bike, the road’s slope and the rider’s deviation triggered her fear of roads (HAMAXOPHOBIA). As she voiced her concerns, a speeding car approached from the opposite lane on the sloping road, leading to an unavoidable accident. Overwhelmed by fear, she fainted even before the collision.
Fortunately, her roommate escaped with only bruises by jumping to the other side of the road. Rescuers at the scene found their school IDs, prompting them to inform the school authorities. When the authorities arrived, Ogunbowale was still unconscious, and efforts were made to revive her. The bike rider, too, suffered injuries to both legs. Due to a doctors’ strike, only LAUTECH hospital was operational. With limited space, the school authorities insisted on keeping Ogunbowale and her roommate together. A doctor, working at LAUTECH, suggested transferring them to his private hospital.
Ogunbowale’s mother was informed and started the journey from Ogun state. By the time she arrived, Ogunbowale had lost a significant amount of blood. The doctors advised against moving her to Ogun state that night, fearing she might not survive the journey. Ogunbowale had foot sprains with a severed vein and a thigh fracture. The local hospital, unaware of the severed vein, hastily sutured her leg before her mother’s arrival.

The medical journey continued as the doctors assessed her condition. A low blood percentage prompted further investigations into blood type and genotype. Finding a compatible blood donor became a challenge, as even the parents’ blood did not match due to Ogunbowale being Rh-negative, unlike both parents who were Rh-positive. Despite this hurdle, the doctors assured them of a solution within their blood bank, albeit at a cost.
The mother, undeterred by the expense, insisted on obtaining the required blood. Six pints were collected to replenish the substantial blood loss, although the severity of the injuries remained unbeknownst to her. The mother, initially thinking the situation was minor, was unaware of the fracture in her daughter’s thigh. The foot sprains had been sutured, creating a false sense of reassurance.
Tragedy struck on the second day as the bike rider succumbed to his injuries. Witnessing this, the mother, initially grieving, braced herself, fearing her daughter might not survive. On the third day, her leg began to exhibit ominous signs, turning black due to insufficient blood flow. Distressed, the patient informed her mother that she could no longer feel her leg; it was there physically but devoid of life. Recognizing the urgency, the mother swiftly transferred her to the only operational state hospital, where the ambulance had initially taken them.
At the state hospital, they faced the grim reality of gangrene setting in, leaving amputation as the only life-saving option. The doctors regretfully informed the mother that had they known earlier, they would have accepted the patient on the day of the incident. With no alternative, the mother consented to the necessary procedures, including two surgeries—amputation and the placement of an implant in the thigh to address the femoral fracture. Thus, the patient, Ogunbowale Deborah Adebimpe, became an amputee. She will be 21 on October 14th. To make money she sells things online like Jewelry and fashion accessories.

The limb she has now was given to her by ISHK in July 2022 , its damaged and needs to be replaced.
