Amal Abbas, in a wheelchair, appeared as a guest on the “A Seif” program on the Kuwaiti channel “ATV”, to narrate during the meeting the details of her long treatment journey and her paralysis, according to “Echo of the Country”. Abbas said that she was paralyzed due to a medical error, as she underwent a serious spinal cord surgery, which resulted in her losing movement and confining her to a wheelchair. She also said that the doctors told her that she had to undergo a heart valve surgery because it was life or death for her. The first operation resulted in her suffering an internal spinal cord hemorrhage, and while trying to stop the bleeding, she had a spinal cord injury and she lost movement as a result.
Amal Abbas indicated that the doctors told her that she would not be able to walk on her feet after this operation, but she does not lose hope and lives in the hope of regaining her movement again.
