Jana Kramer Misdiagnosed With Life-Threatening Sickness

May 15, 2010 (3:43 am) GMT
After her appendix got removed by local Romanian doctors, Jana Kramer's condition got worse and she was flown to the U.S. to get a second opinion.

American actress/singer faced death on the set of 2005 film "Return of the Living Dead: Necropolis" - after local Romanian doctors misdiagnosed a life-threatening gallbladder sickness. The "" star had to halt the overseas shoot because she was too sick to work, and Romanian medics determined she needed to have her appendix removed.

Kramer tells Maxim magazine, "I immediately started feeling sick. But I didn't want to complain and be considered a problem. Eventually I had to go to the hospital. The doctor could barely speak English but said I had to get my appendix out."

But when Kramer wasn't getting better after the operation she flew back to the U.S. to get a second opinion and was stunned when she was told the Romanian doctors had taken out the wrong body part - and she needed a different organ removed.

She explains, "They (doctors in Romania) did the surgery, and six days of recovery time grew into two weeks when I caught pneumonia. I flew back to America, and the doctors here explained it was never my appendix; it was my gallbladder, and if they didn't get it out I was going to die."
