Words of the doctor: “I woke up in intensive care, I realized that I was in intensive care because there was an intubated person next to me.”
“I would like to return to work between the end of October and the first days of November. I deal with pathologies that cannot be left with for long.” Says Professor Francesco Le Foch, clinical immunologist, doctor who was attacked by a former patient in his office in Rome about twenty days ago, speaking into the microphones of Rai Radio2 during the program “I Lunatici”, hosted by Roberto Arduini and Andrea Di Ciancio. .
“I’m much better,” he said, as he said a few days ago, “the eye exam went well, I’m recovering from the first few days when I had a concussion. My journey has also been enlightening. I was from the other side of the chamber and appreciated what my colleagues did for everyone. I woke up in the intensive care unit, realized that I was in intensive care, because there was an intubated person next to me, and they immediately did a kind of self-diagnosis. My colleagues, to whom I should be grateful, managed to restore my retina, I had three operations under general anesthesia in four days, it was quite difficult, but little by little it got better and better.”
About the attack: “I was lucky not to survive the act, I immediately lost consciousness,” said Le Foch, “I am a doctor, now I have to be able to overcome everything, even psychologically. I think about general practitioners who are alone in their clinic, emergency room doctors help who are at risk of seizures. My case was exceptional.”
“My attacker’s mother is very respectable and often follows her son with actions that I may not be able to handle. I was able to contain it when I had the chance to talk to him, she looked at me with admiration, I feel on the side of this mother who I believe has done the most for her son, I would like to hug her for the emotional transfer, which she feels towards this boy.”
