This story is about medical error and deception which ended up with a rose, better known as a colostomy in spite of having no disease. It happened because of a difficult birth which was left unaided for fourteen years in spite of many complaints to the same medical team. It led to many operations and a breakdown bordering on a complete breakdown because the medical profession were not willing to admit their mistakes.
I hope if it is ever printed it won’t only discredit the medical profession but perhaps help them to stop and think and not be so flippant with people’s lives. If it helps anyone on the way, well that’s a bonus.
