Dr Gupta on Medical Mistakes
Ann Stewart: I was watching my favorite newsman today on Oprah. I heard some really heartbreaking horrifying stories. A man lost his penis, without even knowing that was a possibility before he went into the surgery. A woman was told she had breast cancer. Her breast were amputated and later on she found out she didn't even have any cancer at all. A woman's water broke when she was pregnant with twins and the doctors let her lay in bed in the hospital for several days with out doing a cesarean. One of her twin boys had brain damage because of it. These are just some of the stories that were told on Oprah's show. After this show aired the Gupta Gab got really busy and a lot of folks wrote in with their stories of seeing Dr. Gupta on Oprah's Medical Mistakes show. Read what they had to say.
Sindhu Kumar: Ann, all the stories touched me, but one that made me cry was the story of Adam who was born cyanotic (bluish skin color for lack of oxygen getting into the brain). His brain was neurologically damaged as a result of this. That is why he is blind unlike his twin brother, Brandon, who was born healthy while in their mother's womb for an extra 20 minutes while the obstetricians, and Neonatalogists were tending to Adam. This story tugged at my heart because the physician who was at the hospital at the time of Adam's birth refused to tend to him and to his mother during their hour of need as the mother's physician was out of town till that Sunday night. Although, the mother's physician wanted to deliver the babies vaginally and was not there to assist Adam's mother, I still feel that the physician at the Emergency Department at the hospital where Adam and Brendan were born, should have taken a look and performed the measures necessary to make Adam and Brandon's mother more comfortable and the nurses should have noted her distress and informed their unit manager and acted as her advocate to get things done for them in a timely manner. I am very much aware of this, as I am studying to become a nurse and hope that one day, I will be able to act as my patient's advocate and put my patient's interest and get my nursing unit manager involved.
Philip A. Rigelhof: My wife and I were watching Oprah this afternoon. We were really impressed with the comments of Dr. Gupta.
As a cancer survivor, and many hours of surgery over the past 35 years, I can relate to the stories told during this program.
Can you please tell me more about Dr. Gupta, I understand he has a regular program on CNN. When and at what time. EST. We live in Waterloo, Ontario.
Retired now in golden years (73).
DIANE BOYES: HI DR. GUPTA--I AM WATCHING OPRAH NOW AND COULDNT WAIT TO SEE IF YOU WERE ON INTERNET. YOUVE HELPED ME A LOT AND I THOUGHT I NEW WHAT TO DO IN HOSPITAL SITUATIONS.THERES A LOT MORE TO KNOW THANKS TO YOU.
I FEEL TERRIBLE FOR THE ONES ON THE SHOW. I AM GOING TO KEEP YOU IN MY ADDRESS BOOK AND ADDRESS ON HERE. I ALSO HAVE A DAUGHTER IN CHICAGO I WILL TELL HER ABOUT YOU ON THE RADIO. GOD BLESS YOU IN YOUR WORK AND HELPING OTHERS AND CARING. DIANE
CRG: I was wondering if there was a place to email the Dr on this site somewhere. I have a story that no one believes. ...and I was so curious as to what he thought about it. I had a baby born still a bit over 2 years ago. They knew she was sick . . and one of the hospitals that did pre-partum tests on her wanted her body for the autopsy (what she had was so uncommon that they just wanted to do certain tests) . .(trying to make a very long story short here) Needless to say . .we said yes and they were to cremate and bury her. Two years later. . much by accident, we found out they never did that . .She was still . .(not getting morbid here . .so I'll leave the details) in the pathology department . .as well as other places. HOW DOES THIS HAPPEN?
I would love to hear from someone as I just cannot find another family who is suffering the same type of situation. Thanks a ton!
Vermont Girl: I saw Sanjay on Oprah. Had to TEVO it because I was at work. He is really a very sharp guy. I think he is about to become a mega star! Everyone I talk to knows him and he just keeps getting better and better. Right now, I don't think there is anything he can do to dim his rising star. Oprah loved him and if she is smart, she will start using him more and more on the show. He was witty, great looking and really popped on the screen. Sometimes, I still can't believe I was lucky enough to see him in person. Can't wait till People magazine comes out!
Ann Stewart: Well I just recorded Dr. Gupta on Oprah's show and now I can say I know why he hates being called God Gupta. That show broke my heart for those poor people that had been a victim of medical mistakes. One man lost his penis, a women lost her breast, and another woman had a giant ball of bloody ghouls left inside her for 6 weeks after the birth of her baby. It was pretty sad hearing those stories. I guess I will not be calling Dr. Gupta, God Gupta anymore. I highly respect Doctors and medical staff for what they have to do, but I would never want to be in their shoes. It's to much stress and I have seen how hard it is on the body by watching my mother be a nurse for so many years. I will be writing a factual non-comical report on this. It will take me a little time to do so. Thank you ladies or Dr. Gupta for informing me of this show. It was very eye opening and very heartbreaking. I only hope I can write something for this subject that can do it's seriousness justice.
