On 29 th of October Our Patient Mrs Anushya Shinde was posted for debridement to remove maggots from her scalp at 8:30 am by Dr Vaibhav Lokhande. Her blood parameters was normal. She is malnourished and dehydrated but showing some improvement after IV fluids.
She underwent a debridement of the scalp on 30th October 2018 and the maggots were removed. However some more may remain and new eggs may hatch which requires daily dressing. She has developed mild facial swelling which is expected after the scalp surgery and will resolve in time. She is eating well and is well oriented. She will require a few more days of hospitalization following which she can be discharged. We need to think of future rehabilitation.
Looking better. We are making effort to shift her to a home for the aged and lead a good life.
