Hasnat Ahmad's Story
Hasnat Ahmad, aged 41 years, suffered from severe lower backache. The pain radiated to his legs and numbed his feet. The condition prevailed for more than a year. He consulted multiple doctors to identify the root cause. At last, on thorough investigation, he was diagnosed with a prolapsed intervertebral disc (PIVD) between the L4 and L5 region. The neurosurgeon advised surgery for its decompression. For this purpose, Hasnat was admitted to Lahore Care Hospital and his laminectomy and discectomy along with decompression was performed by Dr. Ibrar Khan on 03.06.2021. He stayed in the hospital for two days and was discharged in a stable condition. His backache has reduced since the surgery and he looks forward to resuming his farming work.
