BEWARE: Mother Almost Lost Her Legs After Shaving Her Bikini Line-Must Read


Mother shaved her bikini line that almost killed her

It is a common occurrence for everybody to be shaving their body of hair to be hygienic. But, what happened to this woman almost cost her, her life.

On the 2012 of May, 44 year-old and a mother of 3, Dana Sedgewick, had the idea of trimming her bikini line with the use of a new razor following her routine, so she did. Eventually, she encountered a small bleeding pimple on her groin but didn’t think much of it.

A few days have passed when her eldest daughter, Megan, found her mother lying in bed with her legs looking horrendous and covered in a bloody, red rash. The cause of this was due to the small pimple that has developed into necrotizing fasciitis, a flesh-eating infection.

She was immediately brought to the hospital and got treatment. Doctors’ diagnosis was a condition wherein the bacteria release toxins that attack the surrounding soft tissue that can be caused by a minor cut or scratch.

She was rushed into the hospital to get immediate treatment. Doctors diagnosed her with the condition causing bacteria to release toxins that attack the surrounding soft tissue. It can be caused by a minor cut or scratch.

“By the time I got to the hospital, my legs were covered in black, rotting flesh. It was touch-and-go as to whether I’d make it.”

She went into surgery for 10 hours to save her legs. Doctors cut through seven inches of infected skin and removed the diseased flesh and reapplied skin from her back.

Despite the surgery, Dana developed sepsis which gave her 30% of surviving. Her kidneys failed and her heart stopped four times.

Finally, after waiting for excruciating moments, the surgery was successful. But, Dana’s legs had to be covered with bandages. She thought she suffered from a car accident when she later on realized she wasn’t but instead accidentally cut her groin while shaving.

When it was time to remove the bandage, Dana was shocked and traumatized to see what happened to her legs.

She said: ‘It was horrific. All of my muscle had rotted away, and I had a crater of skin near my groin. I felt like I was going to throw up. But I knew that it could have been much, much worse. I could easily have lost my legs – or worse, died.’

Shaving Her Bikini Line

Dana is now fully recovered with the help of her doctors who did their best to save her and family who never left her side.

Her story is a warning to those who shaved and ignored the small pimple. It might be small but it can cause your life.
