Read How Man Loses Half Of His Face | Photo

A father-of-two who went to meet doctors with a watery eye, has ended up losing about half of his face afterwards.

 
Jamie Mirrlees, a father-of-two who went to the doctors plagued with a watery eye ended up losing half his face after cancer surgery.
According to Daily Star UK, Jamie Mirrlees was initially told he was suffering from a blocked tear duct – but four years later he needed drastic surgery after being diagnosed with a tumour.
He ended up losing his eye, half his nose, a large part of his cheek and most of his teeth and was left with large, gaping holes in his face and neck.
Jamie maintains his cancer should have been picked up earlier – although health chiefs claim he missed a hospital appointment, the Daily Record reports.
The 46-year-old from Paisley, Scotland, said: “My eye was watering constantly. To be honest, I thought it was a blocked tear duct at first. I went to the doctor’s in 2011 and he referred me to the Royal Alexandra Hospital.
 
“But the consultant I saw said there was nothing to worry about, that it just needed to be flushed out. He flushed it out.
 
“I reckon I was losing a pint of water every day.”
But when a lump appeared four years later, he went back to his GP.
At first, the doctor diagnosed a stye – but when it got bigger – he referred Jamie to hospital again.
He added: “They took me in for a biopsy. A month after that, I was told I had cancer.”
In addition to his facial deformities, Jamie was left with a massive scar on his back where the muscle was removed to try to rebuild his face.
The former window cleaner said: “At first I was just glad to still be here because without the operation, I wouldn’t have lasted until Christmas.
 
“The surgeon and his team were brilliant but now I feel angry that it wasn’t spotted earlier.”
He added: “I can’t really eat because swallowing is really difficult. My speech is affected, I can’t work anymore and I can’t even do things with my daughters or my grandchild.
 
“I can’t do anything anymore. I don’t really go out. I feel embarrassed because of the way I look.”
NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde said that after two appointments, Jamie failed to show up for a third.
But he insists he never received the appointment they claim he missed.
He said: “I did move house a few times so the letter could have gone astray but my mail always went to my sister’s and there is no way she would have let me miss an appointment.”
A health board spokeswoman said: “Mr Mirrlees was seen twice by an ophthalmologist in 2011 and treated for a blocked tear duct but unfortunately did not turn up for a further appointment.
 
“We have not received any complaint from Mr Mirrlees but staff would be happy to meet him to discuss any concerns. We do wish him well for his ongoing reconstructive surgery.”

Water tank driver accuses Duncan Mighty of assaulting him in Rivers

Published

Self-acclaimed Port Harcourt First Son, Duncan Mighty is currently trending on social media for the wrong reasons.

A water tank driver, Okabam John has accused singer, Duncan Mighty of assaulting him in Port Harcourt, Rivers state.

It was gathered that the incident reportedly happened on Saturday, November 21, 2020 at about 9:40am when the driver was on duty.

Narrating his ordeal to some Civil Rights Activists on Tuesday November 24, after he was allegedly discharged from the hospital, John, a native of Elele Town in Ikwerre Local Government Area of the state and an employee of Julius Berger Nigeria Limited, claimed that the musician struck him on the head with a traditional staff made of elephant tusk.

According to the driver, while on duty a private car was parked close to his water filling spot. He tried notifying the driver who refused to wind down. He reportedly bent his head to talk to the driver only to discover it was Duncan Mighty.

John said that before he could speak, the singer allegedly struck his head using a traditional staff. He said the second strike was blocked with his hand. He claimed that he could not see when the singer drove off as his eyes were covered with blood.

Confirming the incident on Tuesday, one Ndubueze Obodowhuo, accused Duncan Mighty of using his VIP status to intimidate his people. He also shared a ‘medical report’ stating that John was treated for “shoulder dislocation and scalp laceration.”

Mr John is now calling on his employer, the management of Julius Berger, Security Agencies and Human Rights Organisations to help him get justice. His post below:

“This is Mr. OKABAM JOHN a native of Elele town in Ikwerre LGA of Rivers State, he’s currently employed by JULIUS BERGER NIG.PLC in Port Harcourt and his service engagement is within Judges quarters elelenwo-street, GRA Port Harcourt.

“According to Mr. OKABAM JOHN a Water-tank driver with Julius Berger, Tanker number – B8751, On Saturday 21st of November 2020 at about 9:40am while he was on duty. A private car was parked close to his water filling spot, he tried notifying the driver who refused to wine down, he bent his head to talk with the driver surprisingly, it was Duncan mighty.

“Before he could explain, his head was struck by Duncan mighty using a traditional staff(Elephant tusk), the second strike was blocked with his hand. He(Okabam John) didn’t see how the artist drove off because, blood covered his eyes at that moment.

“Mr. Okabam John narrated this incident after being discharged from the hospital. Duncan doesn’t show up when he’s publicly needed, rather he uses his VIP influence to undo his people. Celebrities should be celebrated by their positivity, their influence shouldn’t pose danger to the society rather it should serve as liberation to the people.

“Mr. OKABAM JOHN is calling on the management of Julius Berger, Security Agents and Human Rights Organisations for justice to be done in his case, to avoid a re-occurance.”
