    THE family of a Perth father say they have been left with hefty medical expenses after a routine procedure in a Bali hospital went badly wrong.

    Steven Didmon, 39, was admitted for a hernia operation at the Siloam Hospital this month, but went into cardiac arrest when doctors administered an epidural anaesthetic.

    Mr Didmon’s sister Fiona Vojnovic said doctors and support staff gave her brother CPR after his heart stopped and stabilised him after several hours of working on him.

    He was placed on life support because his kidney and lungs were not functioning.

    Ventilator tubes have now been removed and he is communicating with his family, though he remains weak and confused.

    Just to let you know they can do well. I had double hernia surgery at Siloam in November 2015 - all good. But sadly for some there can be complications, and then the bill will escalate.

    Unfortunately when we live in a developing country healthcare competency is one of the risks we face , why didnt the poor guy have health insurance ?, to face financial ruin on top of this is terrible.
