According to Delali, she does not remember exactly how the event unfolded but she has been told she was given an injection at the hospital and was unable to walk after she was brought home, and that was it.
Currently, the mother of one is only able to move around by bending to ground herself properly with her hands as support.
Despite her condition, Delali has been able to attend school and graduate from the Accra Technical University as well as secure herself a qualification in broadcast journalism, but due to her situation it has been impossible to find any job.
Any assistance that would give her a livelihood would be much appreciated, she added.
In another report, a woman whose identity has been blurred for security reasons has revealed that doctors at Ridge Hospital left a huge towel inside her tummy after she had a C-section at the regional hospital.
According to the Ghanaian mother who recounted the incident to Captain Smart on Accra-based Angel FM, the towel was left inside her for nine months until it was discovered and removed at a different hospital.
She indicated that her stitched wound took so long before healing and she constantly visited the other hospital from where she was usually referred back to Ridge Hospital.
