Wow in this world we are blessed with modern medcine indeed. Thankfully there are kind hearted people in this world that help others with out payment.

I hope this little girls op goes very well indeed.


An Indian girl born with four arms and four legs is reportedly responding well to the early stages of an extensive surgery.

According to the news website, surgeons at Bangalore's Sparsh Hospital have successfully separated the spine of two-year-old Laksmi from her parasitic twin in the first stage of a long and complicated operation.

Lakshmi, an ischiopagus twin, had two bodies joined at her pelvis. Only one of the twins had a head, while the other was a parasite. Two pairs of legs and arms were formed at either end of the two adjoining torsos, thus appearing as a child with eight limbs.

The girl's twin stopped developing in their mother's womb. As the surviving foetus, Lakshmi absorbed the limbs, kidneys and other body parts of the undeveloped foetus, Associated Press (AP) reported.

"A team of neurosurgeons have separated the fused spines, and will try next to remove the extra limbs, then the rest of her parasitic twin," said Dr Sharan Patil, the orthopaedic surgeon heading the operation told AP.

The surgery, which began early Tuesday local time, involves around 30 doctors and could stretch on for 40 hours.

"The child has been responding very well and it is a big team effort involving a lot of skilled surgeons who will be putting their heart and soul into solving the problem of Lakshmi," Dr Patil said.

Lakshmi was born into a poor family in a village in Araria district near the Bihar-Nepal border.

The hospital's foundation is paying for the surgeries because her family could not afford the medical bills, AP reported.

Lakshmi is named after the four-armed Hindu goddess of wealth, and some in her poor village in the north Indian state of Bihar revere the little girl.

"Everybody considers her a goddess at our village," Lakshmi's father, Shambu, told AP.

He said the family feared people would try to make money from her and, after an unsuccessful attempt by a circus to buy her, they had kept her in hiding.

As for the circus people....................... arguing.gif to them.
I'm glad you didn't get your money hungry claws on her.

Hi Darkraveness, the best comment I've heard from the circus and carnival sideshow acts is this ...

Thanks for the post ---I saw the report briefly on my tv news.

The last report I have is that, after 27 continuous hours of surgery, little Lakshmi is recovering from a successful operation.

Let's all hope that she pulls through and lives a long and happy life.

Lakshmi is lucky she lives in a country that retains human values. If she lived in Capitalia (the US) she would not have received any surgery because her parents are too poor to pay the capitalist blood money.

I say again, the US is the only industrialised country that does not have universal health coverage. "Money means more than life", is its real motto.

So many ferals - so few bullets.

Girl born with 8 limbs smiling after surgery
2-year-old 'doing well' after operation to remove extra limbs, doctors say

BANGALORE, India - A 2-year-old Indian girl born with four arms and four legs regained consciousness Friday, wiggled her toes and smiled at her parents, 48 hours after massive surgery removed the extra limbs, doctors said.

Lakshmi, who has been revered by some in her village as a reincarnation of the four-armed Hindu goddess she was named for, was still in intensive care. But she was “doing well” as doctors slowly stopped sedating her, said Dr. Mamatha Patil, Sparsh Hospital spokeswoman.

“She had smiled at us and moved her limbs,” Patil said. Besides her toes, the girl also moved her arms, Patil said.

Doctors took the girl off a respirator later Friday but were still monitoring her closely during the critical 72-hour period following the operation. She was allowed to spend some time with her parents and seemed a bit confused by her ordeal, chief surgeon Sharan Patil said.

“Lakshmi appeared very perplexed and kept staring at her legs, wondering where the rest of her body had disappeared,” he said.
Lakshmi was born joined at the pelvis to a “parasitic twin” that stopped developing in her mother’s womb. The surviving fetus absorbed the limbs, kidneys and other body parts of the undeveloped fetus.

On Wednesday, a team of more than 30 surgeons concluded the 24-hour operation, removing the extra limbs, transplanting a kidney from the twin and reconstructing Lakshmi’s pelvic area.

Doctors said the complicated surgery was a great success, meaning she would not need further major reconstructive surgery. However, Lakshmi will need further treatments and possible surgery for clubbed feet before she will be able to walk.

Children born with deformities in deeply traditional rural parts of India such as the remote village in the northern state of Bihar that Lakshmi hails from are often viewed as reincarnated gods. But some had sought to make money from Lakshmi. Her parents kept her in hiding after a circus apparently tried to buy the girl, they said.

Her father, Shambhu, who only goes by one name, had told reporters that her family had been worried for her future before the operation and he was looking forward to seeing her with “a normal body.”
