Aussie lady almost lost her leg in Phuket motorbike accident

Doctors at Vachira Phuket Hospital in Phuket have dismissed reports that they may have to amputate Australian tourist Stacey Liddle’s left leg, which was crushed by a bus after a collision near the island’s Chalong Circle last Thursday.

 Liddle, from Brisbane, traveled to Thailand to celebrate her 30th birthday. On Oct. 26, her rental motorbike collided with a tour bus. Liddle was knocked down on to the road and the bus’ back wheels ran over her left leg.

Dr. Kritsada Chairattanaphitak, Vachira Hospital’s Medical Specialist in Hand and Microsurgery, told The Phuket News on Friday, “We have performed several operations on Ms. Liddle’s leg as it suffered multiple fractures and severe damage in the accident.”

“There is no need to consider amputation unless there is an infection or complication – and at this stage, there is neither. The nerves are still there and currently there is no infection,” he added.

“Her leg is still recovering, it is getting better,” Dr. Kritsada assured.  Source: Coconuts Bangkok
