“Nobody thought it was a tear or something worse. Well, stretching and stretching. Began treatment all known ointments from the pharmacy. But soon the hand began to fester. The surgeon looked, opened, cut, but not removed it. The operation took place under local anesthesia. After the surgery, the doctor said that we should go to the clinic for a check-up and bandaging,” says Anna.
When Alexis came to the clinic at the place of residence, it turned out that the surgeon is on vacation, and bandaging was done by the nurse. Gradually the wound healed, but in early October, Alexis homes hit the patient’s hand. The next day while dressing the athlete’s temperature rose sharply.
