A 22-year-old woman spent her four years battling a mystery illness but couldn’t find any answer about her abdominal pain.
Sharna McManus from New Zealand told she visited numerous specialists but the doctors were unable to diagnose her condition.
Ms. McManus told Nine News: “Pretty much any team they could send me to, they would say “no it’s not me, it’s the next team, it’s the next team.” They said there was nothing more they could do to help me.”
After she saw a video of a Perth specialist Krishna Boddu treating a patient with a similar condition in a YouTube video, she decided to contact him.
Krishna Boddu diagnosed her condition during a FaceTime video call and offered her to treat her condition in a 20-minute procedure.
Dr. Boddu said: “When the soft tissue is healing, majority of the time, the nerve is not entrapped.”
Dr. Boddu said sometimes the nerve gets entrapped and the cause of the nerve entrapment can be trauma, injury and repeated or overuse activity.
“However, sometimes the nerve gets entrapped, the scar forms and the nerve is constantly being stimulated, which causes pain”, he added.
Ms. McManus underwent the 20-minute procedure on Saturday after travelling from New Zealand to Perth and finally got rid of the pain she was experiencing for the last four years.
After the life-changing 20-minute procedure, Ms. McManus said she can’t thank Dr. Boddu enough and express her gratitude as it was horrible living with that abdominal pain.
She asked Dr. Boddu after the operation: “Can I please give you a hug?”
“Honestly I can’t thank you enough and express my gratitude”, she added.
Thanks to the FaceTime video call that has changed Ms. McManus’s life forever as she can now live without feeling the severe abdominal pain.
