Usman Bilal's Story
Usman Bilal, aged 2 years, a resident of Bahawalpur suffered from cyanosis and dyspnea since birth. His body color changed to blue and he was feeling shortness of breath. After several tests, the doctors diagnosed him with TGA (transposition of great arteries) and an Atrial Switch surgery was performed on him in Ittefaq Hospital in 2019. But after a while, he began experiencing breathlessness and cyanosis again. He was investigated and was found to have an Atrial and Pulmonary Stenosis (AS and PS). The doctors suggested redoing the atrial switch operation. For this purpose, Usman Bilal was admitted to Ittefaq Hospital and his surgery was done by Dr. Asim Khan on 02.06.2021. Usman Bilal stayed in the hospital for four days. He was discharged in a stable condition.
