Bahawal Sher's Story
Bahawal Sher, a 20-year-old resident of Lahore, had been enduring difficulty in breathing and bluish skin discoloration since he was born. He was not healthy and the doctors asked his parents to investigate further with Angiography for a better diagnosis. His angiography was performed with the help of Transparent Hands back in 2021. After the angiography, Bahawal was found to have a Univentricular Heart with Transposition of Great Arteries. The doctor advised him to undergo Open-heart Surgery for the right CP Shunt placement. He was sent to the Ittefaq Hospital, Lahore. His procedure was performed by Dr. Muhammad Asim Khan on 03-02-2022. He was discharged after 14 days of hospital stay in satisfactory condition and now looks forward to a healthy, bright future. Bahawal’s surgery was made possible with the help of the Pakistan Children’s Heart Foundation.
