Australian Socialite Undergoes 36 Surgeries, Two Legs Amputated After Mosquito Bite In Nigeria


The 52-year-old Stephenie Rodriguez visited Lagos in 2019 after being invited to speak at a business gathering for travel executives. She shared how a mosquito bite left her fighting for her life, two weeks later.

Australia’s Good Weekend magazine, that she spoke to said that at the hospital, Rodriguez was given a two per cent chance of survival.

Complications resulted in 36 surgeries. Her last surgery was six months ago to amputate both her feet.

According to reports, Rodriguez is the first woman in Australia with above-ankle bilateral osseointegrated implants and mechanical feet.
