Amateur footballer injures leg, needs overseas treatment


According to a medical report from Edward Francis Small Teaching Hospital, Adama was presented with a history of multiple blisters on the right leg for seven days and reduced movement in the right leg for three weeks which he sustained when playing football.

The leg examinations also showed swelling of the right leg from the middle 2/3 to the toes, extensive ulcer from the lower 1/3rd of the right leg, extending to the dorsum of the right foot with fibrin coating of the floor and oozing of pus. 

The report also revealed that sensation and peripheral pulses on the leg are lost. “The right leg shows both fracture of the tibia and fibula. The patient needs close reduction and external fixation of the fractured tibia and fibula of the right leg. However, the material needed to do so are currently not available,” the medical report concluded. Persons and organisations wishing to offer help can contact the family on 6442393.
