Stenum Hospital Mr B
Major Thrombosis Complication

Preop symptoms: legs and feet burning, tingling and twitching
On 2/2/06 I had the L4-5 and L5-S1 disc levels replaced with 2 Maverick artificial disc replacements at Stenum Hospital in Bremen, Germany. I chose Stenum mainly because I wanted an all metal disc that I thought would last my lifetime. I am a 50 year old male.
During the surgery the left iliac vein was cut by error. It was sutured. In the ICU I began to have nausea and diarrhea. My blood pressure went way down and I was given oxygen. On the 3rd day after surgery the hospital orthopedic intern saw my left leg was very swollen and I had black and blue areas in my side and groin areas. She sent me to the city to check for thrombosis. Unfortunately it was confirmed that I had extensive hematoma and class 2 thrombosis in 4 major compartments (stomach, groin, thigh and calf). I stayed in the hospital for 7 weeks until I was able to fly safely back to the USA. Currently I cannot do anything for very long without my leg and groin getting very swollen. This has been a disaster for me. Stenum has said that I am the first patient to have such a thrombosis.
At this point I would like to say how wonderful some of the things at Stenum are:
*my back seems to be doing much better although I still get some numbness in my feet
*the beautiful countryside and woods nearby
*the caring and compassionate nurses
*the first class physical and massage therapists
*the very capable and caring head of the hospital (acts as assistant in the ADR surgery) as well as the orthopedic intern that diagnosed my thrombosis
*the very competent international department coordinator and administrator
Next some of the bad things at Stenum:
*I never met the ADR surgeon before, during or after the surgery, even after my disaster.
*Is the ADR surgeon ceritfied to do vascular surgery?
Please pray for me that I will continue to heal from this wretched thrombosis. If you would like to discuss this further please do not hesitate to email me.
