    So sorry about your loss. The Nigerian screening point is stressfull. I was afraid I may lose a pregnancy. Someone whose health is not very good can’t stand it. Wahala too much. This is sad.

    How awful!

    I don’t think it has to do with the stress of the screening point though. It’s most probably due to an embolism from a blood clot caused by sitting for so long. Compression stockings are helpful on long haul flights.

    Rest in peace Dr. Dada and may God comfort your loved ones.

      Nope. Goldies was most probably a Subarachnoid haemorrhage (described as worst headache or thunder-clap headaches), way much different from a Pulmonary embolism and compression stockings would not have helped in her case.
