Muhammad Aman's Story
Muhammad Aman, a 14-year-old resident of Sheikhupura, suffered from dyspnea, cyanosis, and recurring episodes of chest pain. Since his early years, Aman’s parents have witnessed his health deteriorate, tirelessly striving to manage his condition. Concerned about his well-being, they sought medical assistance at the local hospital, where diagnostic tests revealed a Tetralogy of Fallot (TOF) diagnosis. To rectify his condition, his surgery for total correction was performed in 2011. After some years, he came to consult a cardiologist with the same symptoms, and he was diagnosed with pulmonary stenosis. Again, he underwent another surgery for pulmonary valve replacement in 2018.
Recently, he again complained, and investigations revealed that his pulmonary valve is malfunctioning again and needs replacement. The doctor advised him to undergo redo median sternotomy, VSD closure, and implantation of RV to PA conduit. Unfortunately, his father’s income was not enough to cover the surgical expenses, and they contacted Transparent Hands for financial support.
He was admitted to Ittefaq Hospital, Lahore, where his operation was performed by Dr. Asim on 19-06-2023. After a remarkable recovery, he was discharged from the hospital, after spending five days there. He was asked for a follow-up visit for the removal of stitching after 10 days. He was also advised to have an echocardiogram after one month. The surgery was successful due to the unwavering support of the Pakistan Children’s Heart Foundation and significant contributions from individuals like you.
With each breath, he takes in a renewed sense of vitality, free from the constraints that once held him captive. Muhammad Aman can finally enjoy being a teenager, discover his true passions, and create a life full of fulfilled ambitions now that his health has been restored. This would not have been possible without the collective support of empathetic donors who supported his life-changing surgery. Donate now to help more patients like Aman.
