Muhammad Ali's Story
Muhammad Ali, aged 1 year, was unable to pass stool at the age of seven months. When his parents took him to the doctor, they performed a laparotomy for his intestinal obstruction. He was diagnosed with an ileocolic intussusception and an ileostomy stoma was made. This procedure was performed in a local hospital. However, later, Ali needed an ileostomy reversal surgery and his family was not facilitated by any of the local hospitals again.
Therefore, they contacted the TH team and got him registered. Ali’s exploratory laparotomy was done in Akram Medical Complex on 4th June 2021 by Dr. M. Bilal Mirza. He was found to have massive intestinal dilatation along with adhesions. Consequently, his adhenolysis was performed and it was found that the stoma could not be reversed or closed. So, Ali’s stoma revision was performed which is to be closed in a subsequent surgery. His hospital stay was four days and he was discharged in a satisfactory condition. Ali’s parents are grateful because his symptoms have improved and he is waiting for the final surgery now.
