KK Women’s and Children’s Hospital (KKH) has been accused of botching a childbirth surgery that caused a woman to gas and fecal matter from her vagina. The patient, Riin, may also never be able to give vaginal birth in future due to the hospital’s alleged negligence.

Riin alleges that after delivering her baby at KKH during an induced childbirth in July, she experienced severe pain as she was stitched up. While in hospital, she started passing gas through her vagina but she thought this was a normal side-effect of childbirth. She was discharged the next day.

A few days later, though, Riin began passing fecal matter through her vagina. A week after she was discharged, she was rushed back to KKH where an emergency specialist allegedly told her that there was a hole in her rectum wall due to a “defect in the stitching” but that corrective surgery was possible.

Riin was warded once again before being suddenly told that surgery at KKH may not be possible after all.

The desperate and emotionally drained woman was eventually moved to Tan Tock Seng Hospital (TTSH) where a colorectal specialist operated on her and successfully corrected the issue.

Following the surgery, Riin was allegedly told that KKH had not only caused a stitiching defect, they had also not stitched her vagina lips resulting in a “super loose” vagina that had opened as if she had given birth to 10 children. TTSH doctors had to open and redo the stitching.

Although Riin is recovering well, she may not be able to give birth vaginally in future as a second tear might occur and may be more complicated to repair.

Riin appears to have Whatsapp-ed her story to her friend, Mashi, who shared Riin’s plight on Facebook:
