Imam Said's Story
Imam Syed, aged 48 years, suffered from severe neck pain that radiated to his arms. He frequently felt numbness and weakness in all four of his limbs. He also experienced urinary incontinence, for the past two years. On thorough medical examination, he was diagnosed with prolapsed intervertebral disc (PIVD) at C5-C6 level and severe cervical stenosis. The neurosurgeon advised surgical intervention for removal of this faulty disc. For this purpose, Imam was admitted to Lahore Care Hospital and his anterior cervical discectomy along with cervical fixation were performed by Dr. Ibrar Ullah on 09.03.2021. He stayed in the hospital for three days and was discharged in a stable condition. Imam is taking ample rest and is on his way to recovery.
