CITY businessman Charlie Lubega’s son, Michael Lubega, is fighting for his life after cracking his skull, eye socket in a near death accident.
Michael was involved in the accident in the wee hours of Saturday morning. He was from Club Guvnor, where he works in a supervisory role alongside his dad.
One of the bones shattered and compressed the spinal cord leaving the body in paralysis, Mr. Charlie Lubega said.
Taking to a WhatsApp group, dad Charlie announced: “Michael had a very bad accident at 3am on Friday morning that Cracked his skull, eye socket and broke 3 cervical bones (C4,5 & 6). One of the bones shattered and compressed the spinal cord leaving the the body in paralysis.
He underwentsurgery at IHK 1:30pm on Friday for close to 7 hours.
First the neuro surgeon drilled the skull to drain a clot and all the hemorrhaged blood from the brain cavity. Then the orthopedic surgeons repaired C4,5& 6 with some bone grafted from the hip and used titanium plates and screws to secure and position.
Thereafter a plastic surgeon reconstructed his shattered ear.
He spent the whole of Friday night in ICU in an induced coma at. On Saturday they started gradually reducing the sedation and he responded positively.
CT Scans were done on the brain and cervical vertebrae and confirmed that both ops were successful – without any issues. Sunday morning he will be taken off sedation and woken up to observe how he responds. Doctors are positive about the progress so far.
