Woman left with 'shark hand' after doctors sew it inside stomach during ...
A woman was left with a “shark hand” after she contracted sepsis following an operation.
34-year-old Sadie Kemp from Peterborough was left with a hand that resembles a shark following surgery, where doctors had to sew her hand inside her abdomen to keep it alive.
The horrible ordeal began for Kemp on Christmas Day when she went to the hospital because of a sharp pain in her kidney caused by a kidney stone.
By Boxing Day, Kemp had contracted sepsis and went into septic shock which affected her limbs, resulting in the amputation of her fingers.
Sepsis occurs when the body tries to fight off an infection but the immune system goes into overdrive and attacks the body’s healthy tissues. It is a life-threatening condition that is the leading cause of death in hospitals.
But, Kemp has taken her hardship in great stride and has become TikTok famous for her openness and humour around her experience.
