A man who had spent his entire life in Vidor and had been diagnosed with fungal meningitis as a result of an epidemic that may have been connected to cosmetic procedures that were carried out in Mexico went away at the age of 29 after a long and difficult battle with the disease. According to the Texas Department of State Health Services, 17 Texans who traveled to Matamoros, Mexico for medical treatment and later returned home exhibited symptoms consistent with fungal meningitis after returning home. Because of the possibility of developing fungal meningitis, state and federal health officials are advising residents of the United States to call off any upcoming surgeries that were scheduled to take place in Matamoros.
Patients who have gone through surgeries while under the influence of epidural anesthesia are the focus of this discussion. While his wife Lauren Robinson was receiving treatment for her sickness at Jennie Sealy Hospital, which is located on the campus of the University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston, Garrett Robinson did not miss a single day of being by his wife’s side. According to Garrett Robinson, it was not until a few months after his wife had undergone a cosmetic surgery in Mexico that she started exhibiting any symptoms. On May 25, 2023, Garrett Robinson granted an interview to 12News with the purpose of raising awareness and preventing anyone else from having to go through the misery that he and his family had been through.
Garret Richardson had earlier told 12News, “I can’t explain how it feels to go through this, and I can’t tell everyone enough, don’t do it,” Richardson had said. “I can’t stress enough that you shouldn’t do it,” is all I can say. In the month of February, Lauren Robinson traveled to the city of Matamoros, which is situated in the very topmost region of Mexico, to undergo surgical procedures. Officials from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have identified Clinica K-3 and River Side Surgical Center as the two facilities that have been related to the outbreak. The 13th of May, 2023 was the last day of operation for these medical facilities. She started going back to work, and then she started continuously telling me, ‘I have a headache, something is not right.'” This was one of the comments that was made by Garrett Robinson. “She was fantastic, the results were great, everything was good.”
