Tahir Iqbal's Story
Tahir Iqbal, aged 35 years, suffered from a horrific roadside accident that resulted in a head injury. This happened around 8 months ago. He gradually recovered from the head injury. However, it resulted in loss of his sense of hearing. Nonetheless, Tahir did not lose hope and consulted multiple doctors in hopes of finding a solution to his problem. He was referred to National Hospital and his cochlear implant was installed in the right ear under the supervision of Dr. Naveed Aslam on 22.04.2021. However this was not the end of his procedure. He was to visit soon for the placement of the external component of the device. For this purpose he visited National Hospital again on 07.06.2021 where the external component of the device was placed. He was discharged the same day. Tahir will start taking his appointments with the speech therapist very soon. Gradually, over the period of a few months, the volume of his component will be adjusted after which he will be able to hear normally.
