Stroke Patient Hears Doctors Discuss Removing His Organs

Saturday, 05 April 2014 10:10 AM

A Swedish man paralyzed by a stroke listened in horror as doctors told his loved ones that he was going to die and that they wanted to remove his liver and kidney for transplant.

"I heard them tell my girlfriend and relatives there was no hope," Jimi Fritze told the London Telegraph. "I couldn't do anything. I could only see and hear. I couldn't move my body."

Fritze, 43, has filed an official complain to Sahlgrenska Hospital in Gothenburg, where he was treated.

Fritze had suffered a stroke while eating at a restaurant with his girlfriend. He was flown by helicopter to the hospital, but by the time he got there he was completely paralyzed. "They looked at the x-ray of my brain and they told my girlfriend that it wasn't good and that I wouldn't live," Fritze told the Telegraph. "I could hear her crying the whole time.

"I heard them talking about donation, they wanted to do tests on my liver and my kidney, so they could give them to some people."

A new doctor took another look at his x-ray and realized that Fritze had a good chance at recovery. After two years of rehabilitation, he can now speak and move, although he remains confined to a wheelchair.
