According to 47news.ru and fontanka.ru, a resident of the village of Gavrilovo, Leningrad region Klavdiya Vasilievna has been suffering from oncology since 2019. Over time, she developed ascites (a buildup of free fluid in the abdomen). It was difficult for the woman to walk, lie down and even breathe. The stomach swelled from the accumulated fluid.
In November, the retiree was hospitalized at Vyborg Hospital, but the planned operation was postponed because she tested positive for COVID-19. Relatives brought my grandmother home.
The woman couldn't take the pain anymore, so she decided to have the operation on her own. After waiting for the relatives to leave, the retiree took a knife and cut her stomach several times to release the liquid. Before the procedure, she wrote a suicide note so that her daughter and grandchildren would not be blamed for her possible death. & Nbsp;

“ I open the apartment door and hear: '' Girl, honey, I made something to myself. She ran into the dressed-up room. Of course, I'm in shock, hysterical, crying. I throw the blanket back, and it has a hole just above the belly button on the left or right side, and water comes out of there. The nightgown is all wet, and the sheet is also wet.
