Mr. Abdul Majid is a resident of Faisalabad, Pakistan. He underwent Liver Transplantation Surgery in India at Max Hospitals. Relive his journey and how he got better after such a life-threatening ailment.
Mr. Abdul Majid is a resident of Faisalabad, Pakistan. He had a history of hepatitis-C related liver cirrhosis and was diagnosed with hepatocellular carcinoma in Feb 2019. The patient’s son, sent an inquiry to MediGence to seek opinion for his father as the doctors in Pakistan had refused to conduct any treatment.
With so many local references and companies available to provide guidance to them, he was confused about where and whom to trust. Some of the agents even provided false information to them on the pretext of getting an opinion from the concerned hospital or doctor.
However, they decided to trust MediGence and discussed his father’s case with the team in detail. He shared all the medical reports with the team when they contacted him and asked to get an opinion from Dr. Subhash Gupta at Max Hospital, who is quite popular in Pakistan for liver transplantation surgery.
Mr. Abdul had a history of hepatitis C. Pain in the abdomen, history of HCV, and appetite loss was some of the chief complaints that led him to undergo an ultrasound of the pelvis and the abdomen.
The scan suggested the presence of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) with partial thrombosis of the left branch of the portal vein. Following the ultrasound, a multiphasic CT scan was conducted, which confirmed the presence of HCC.
Thankfully, the surgery and recovery inside the hospital were without any complications. The donor recovered really well after the surgery and so did the patient. The donor’s parameters were all normal by the time she was discharged from the hospital.
The patient was stable and physically active when he was discharged from the hospital. Currently, he is recovering at the guest house and waiting to attend his follow-up sessions with Dr. Gupta. He is taking his diet properly and also indulges in morning walk every day to keep himself up and running.
Everybody, including the team of doctors at Max Hospital headed by Dr. Gupta, is happy to see the donor and the recipient so well. Team MediGence wishes Mr. Abdul and his son, a happy and healthy life ahead.
