I don't know where the blame goes, but this situation has been botched.
This post reminds me of when the Grizzlies had a player named Jordan Adams a few years ago. He underwent surgery on his right knee two or three times. The first time, it was thought to have gone well, but the lingering soreness still was an issue. So the Grizzlies medical staff went in again thus causing Adams to miss more time. There was speculation running around the team and perhaps the city that the then medical team botched the surgery for Adams up. Not long after Adams was waived, the then medical staff was let go rather quietly leaving behind the speculation of botch medical precedures of Jordan Adams behind them.ttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jordan_Adams
"operation was sucess" was movie sentence that somehow founds it's way to mainstream media. Doctors in past never said it, i was reading some forum about it and few doctors said that they never said those words after surgeries in their lifes.
Operation was sucessful ... but patient (maharaja) died is old joke from i think hindu book, around 1920s or so.
But in general, for them it means that surgery didn't have any additional complications, anesthesia was done well, there was no structural, nerve or any other demage and first prognosis is positive.
