Muhammad Hamza 's Story
Ten-year-old Hamza, a resident of Faisalabad, had suffered from generalized body swelling, dyspnea, cyanosis, and frequent episodes of chest pain since birth. His parents took him to the hospital. After running diagnostic tests, the doctor diagnosed him with a right atrial tumor and tricuspid regurgitation (TR). He was operated on for atrial tumor resection at the age of one year. He again suffered from fatigue, heart palpitations, and generalized body swelling. His family consulted with the doctor once more, and the doctor advised him to undergo open heart surgery for a tricuspid valve. Muhammad Hamza was admitted to Ittefaq Hospital, Lahore, where his operation was performed by Dr. Asim on 15-12-2022.
His tricuspid valve was repaired. He was discharged from the hospital after a six-day stay. This surgery was made possible with the support of the Pakistan Children’s Heart Foundation. Hamza is doing fine now. We sincerely appreciate your kind support. We can’t do it without you, and we appreciate your willingness to lend a helping hand.
