Another Indian Surgery! Opa Williams in India for Surgery

Opa Williams is the producer of 'Nite of a thousand laughs'. Here is what he wrote on his Facebook page;

"How things change, how new things, places, experiences spring up before you and take priority over all else. It’s 5.00 am and I am in Dubai waiting to catch a flight to Bangalore. Bangalore, that name was never known to me some three months ago, even going to Dubai was not in my things to do list a month ago.

"But [I] am here sitting and waiting for my flight to Bangalore South India and that will be like 6 hours from now. What’s on my mind? Get there and do this damn surgery and get back to Lagos and revisit my drawn things to be done for the year 2012. This was just a distraction that God has conquered."

  2. May God be with you. You are a brave man to go to a country where you will need a third language to explain your medical problems.

  4. I don’t blame those going to India . Nothing works in that Naija , absolutely nothing, all that works is the constant looting and corruption . ….. My dad went to India for prostate cancer treatment and yes he did die after spending over 20,000 dollars in hospital bill but the care he received was far better than the rubbish care in LUTH and another private hospital. The treatment in Nigeria before we took him to India was shameful , Nigeria is a disgrace … No need to go into details but we are finished in that country , yet we make so much mouth all in the name of patriotism … Only regret is that we should have taken him to India earlier


    Wish you Opa a speedy recovery ..

    1. sorry your dad died but the truth is the cost of health care in Nigeria is almost 10x what it costs in India. instead of of government to focus on real issues they r renovating their quarters for billions of naira. sad situation we re in

  7. Oga you for add small money go UK or USA go do this your surgery o! Where there is life there is pay. I know Indian doctors are good and they are the same people that will treat you in UK or USA but these countries have standards/ regulations and India doesn't. I am praying for you so that it wont be a case of penny wise pound foolish!!!

    1. So this is what you have to say? It's not everything you think u put dwn publicly, so you no, pple leave the uk& us for medical treatment in India. Exposure matters a lot, dumb dumb.

    2. I agree. A friend told me that his doctor has a partnership with some Indian doctors and he will always refer people to India! I don't know if this is widespread and if it is, it is wrong. However, i believe getting a medical visa to India is easier than getting one to the UK and/or America. South Africa isn't bad and i wonder why more people don't go there. Get well soon Opa Williams.

    3. @anonymous 13:35, Madam exposure! People go to India because of the lower cost of medicare there. That does not mean the quality(ethics and conduct) are at par with the US. I live in the US and I know that you can get quality healthcare butt it will cost you good. Isn't it better to pay for the real stuff than go cheap and risk death? Standardized care matters. Instead of calling people names, why dont you make your contribution and move on.

    4. @Amamarchukwu you sound so dumb ... Dont people die in UK or US, even from Ashma attack self . UK and US healthcare is not perfect either so educate your self . Its a lot better than Nigeria no doubt but It is God who is the ultimate healer . Early diagnosis is KEY

    5. Senior House Officer, I see you are given to abusing people and that must be because your life is meaningless. Amara may be Dumb but he/she is not like you. I doubt you get the gist of the post. When people die like insects in a particular area of the world, the watch word becomes caution. Anyway I see you are a Nobody(Anonymous)thats why you want us to think you are someone. hehehehehe...House Officer Ko, House boy ni!!!

    6. Why so bitter aboki? And amara, pls focus on relevant things.God is d ultimate healer.weda d hospital is in a hole or not, His will shall b done. Okay!

    7. Aboki na mallam don't be an idiot. Didn't u go to sch at all. If a fool like u wanna act like a third party u shuld do it reasonable. What the babe said isn't bad n its actually d pure truth. I lived/live in da UK buh am a Nigerian n now doing ma masters in the US. Ma dad died in the US apparently dey made him understand dey wuld have refered in to india buh it was too late. Surgoens in UK n US r good buh not as good as the ones in India. My father sickness confrimed that n even one of the doctors confirmed that too. So stop talking like u know it all wen u haven't passed d borders of 9ja.

      Amara: u shuld stop talking like u were born in the yankees n even if u wr u need to know a lot cos it seems u know nothing. U r far from exposure. U r just too daft n jump into conclusion like a fool. Always pray u don't get a sickness that will make u be transfered to Sudan. There's no way someone can't die cos God is d healer n doctors will just do theirs.

    I wish him well. I keep reading that people go to India and don't come back. God speed Mr. Williams.

    BTW Bangalore is the Silicon Valley of India and the outsource capital of the world.

  11. My People, either India or Nigeria it is the grace of God that we should be seeking for. i have once been in this scenario, i had mine (Gallbladder removal surgery) in Ile-Ife, Osun state Nigeria and it was successful, though i spent almost 900k but glory be to God.
    One thing i can say is that our nigerian Doctors shld believe in themselves because they were trying to put fear in me that i shld be praying for them to discover if any mistake while doing the surgery else if they discover of any mistake after surgery then they will need to do another surgery e.t.c , even the anesthesia was also telling me that He just want to try it.
    Let us just been praying for God grace. A colleague of mine had his own in south africa and died after the surgery.

  12. Ladun, so you know a celebrity died recently while on medical treatment in India? A veteran like Pa Enebeli, no less! Did you report it? No. You were too busy running after Toke and her underwear, giving her cheap publicity

  14. I am not referring to Opa Williams but it looks as if some Nigerians are alcoholics and it damaged their organs. The truth is very bitter. Alcohol can also damage the brain.

  15. I don't know why you say "another" people have no good healthcare here and they wait until its not fixable then they get to India when they are half dead and have people like you call it "Another Indian Surgery!"

    Why not sort out your own!

  16. With the boom of Medical Tourism, India is quickly becoming one of the favorite destinations for a medical traveler. Breakthrough in Cardiac surgery in India has attracted the major population of the world to this beautiful country. With rapidly expanding infrastructure, clinical expertise and international standard implementation, India is servicing healthcare needs, at Heart surgery cost in India.
