Dr. Oz: Bruise Turns into Amputation
About a year ago, journalist Miles O’Brien was packing up his gear when a heavy suitcase fell onto his left arm. This injury seemed minor, with some bruising and swelling. But it soon escalated into a medical emergency that forced doctors to amputate the limb.
Dr. Sanjay Gupta was so inspired by this story that he wanted to share it on Dr. Oz. Dr. Gupta knows Miles well and he said this story was remarkable because it’s so shocking. A relatively harmless injury leading to an amputation is a story that stays with you.
