A woman was so scared she couldn’t sleep after being bitten so badly by a giant spider that she needed surgery.
When 20-year-old Anya Cantrell woke up at her home in Chichester, West Sussex on January 6, she was initially unconcerned.
However, as the injury worsened over the next two days, student Anya began to worry that her hand had swollen to “double its size” and began to be painful.
Doctors at St. Richards Hospital performed emergency surgery on Anya on January 10 after antibiotics proved ineffective.
A team of surgeons drained fluid from the theater student’s hand, confirming that the bite was from a common fake widow spider.
A horrified Anya claims that doctors found her injuries just before the infection entered her bloodstream, so she “could have died.”
But the most terrifying part wasn’t over yet – we still haven’t seen the creepy Crawley in Anya’s student house.
A nervous young woman claims she resorts to searching her room before going to bed for fear that something will crawl into her during the night.
“I was scared,” said Anya, from Southampton, Hampshire.
“rear [the surgery] They said they were lucky to find it because it was so close to getting into my bloodstream and getting sepsis.
“I could have died. I panicked quite a bit.”
And she confirmed that arachnids may still be released.
She continued: “[We] Couldn’t find a spider. It’s scary too.
“My parents sent me back [from the surgery] I asked my father to come to my room and search every nook and cranny.
“I woke up while I was sleeping, [now] Before I go to bed, I check everywhere for anything that might crawl around during the night. “
After surgery, Anya returns home to visit her parents in Southampton to escape the eight-legged villain hiding in the house.
Anya claims she kept her bedroom door open while she was away in hopes that lurking pests would crawl out.
Already terrified of spiders, her encounter with the False Widow made her more terrified than ever.
Anya said: “It’s even scarier now to think that it might still be there after it’s been done in my hands.
“I went home to my parents and left the bedroom door open. ‘I keep the door open so if there’s something in there, it crawls out and gets stuck.'”
“At this rate, the spider will turn to stone. If you see a spider, you have to leave the room.”
And she says that because of this ordeal, she won’t even be able to get rid of spiders on her own.
“[Now] I walk into the room and check every nook and cranny. If a spider is nearby, say, “Stay away from me. This is what spiders do to me.
“This definitely made spiders scared. [before] If I am alone, I will be able to drive away spiders. But now I say no.”
