Lupita's surgery at HCMC in mid-March lasted 28 hours over two days, a grueling endeavor for Dr. Samadani, chief neurosurgery resident Dr. Catherine Miller, and a rotating team of about 30 people.
During the first day of the surgery, DR. Samadani took two 5- to 10-minute breaks to grab a quick snack and use the restroom. Dr. Miller took one. “I’ve done long cranial cases,” said Samadani, “but this is by far the longest spinal case we have done, or that I’ve ever heard was done.”
After surgery, Lupita spent 2 more weeks in the hospital. After meeting with the oncologist, Lupita has folloe a Medical treatment that her medical insurance won't cover.
