The removal of her ovaries was never discussed during her surgical consultations.
Lucinda Methuen-Campbell considered 2016 a bowel disease treatment at the Spire Hospital in Bristol, England. A surgeon there, Anthony Dixon, had gained international recognition for rectifying bowel problems in patients with vaginal mesh implants. Methuen-Campbell proceeded with the operation – and was shocked to learn that Dixon had removed her ovaries.
She asked him why.
"He said he thought he had done me a favor and he said," I thought you know a woman of your age would not really need her ovaries, "said Methuen-Campbell to the BBC .
"I said," Why did you remove her? "And he just said," They were in the way, "she said. "My life is completely ruined."
It got worse. The implant had caused her great pain, which became increasingly painful over time.
Methuen-Campbell was recently found dead after hanging in her loft in Swansea, the BBC reported. Swansea resident Aled Gruffydd concluded that the operation was "unsuccessful and aggravated her pain and impaired her sanity." Methuen-Campbell was 58.
"I'm undoubtedly happy to kill myself," Gruffydd said during an investigation of Methuen-Campbell's death. "The pain she was in made her take her life
Methuen-Campbell's former partner, Philip Chatfield, said that Methuen-Campbell felt that "there seemed to be no way out of the pain."
"The pain was getting worse and nobody seemed to be able to solve the problem, "said Chatfield during the hearing, according to the BBC.
Methuen-Campbell left her 19-year-old son, Angus, a note that read," I'm sorry, Angus, me love you, best son of all time. "
Her son said after the hearing that his mother" had a lot of pain after the surgery "and was very annoyed with her. The ovaries were removed," the BBC said.
Dixon, the surgeon, was suspended from two hospitals in Bristol and is being investigated by the British Health Service and the General Medical Council for his interventional surgery. Surgical mesh implants are typically used to treat conditions such as pelvic organ prolapse and stress incontinence in women according to the FDA. These conditions can sometimes occur after birth.
The General Medical Council has also banned Dixon from performing any other type of surgery, the rigid procedure – which is for stapled transanal resection of the rectum – according to Telegraph until 2018. The procedure is used to treat obstructive defecation syndrome.
Dixon previously said that while operations may go wrong, his always be done in good faith, the Telegraph reported. He also said earlier that most of his operations were successful.
