"Keeping the fainting spells at bay featuring Yuvraj"
"He is much healthier now, and is currently in recovery, all thanks to dr. Vikas Kohli's consistent efforts", says the grateful father.
When Yuvraj was six months old, the parents noticed their baby's skin looked blue. Seemingly, fragile Yuvraj fainted a lot and turned weaker which made us extremely hostile.
The problems persisted and the overall development of baby Yuvraj came to a standstill.
After much thought, they consulted various doctors only to be disappointed by the feedback they received. None of the doctors could help them.
Hopelessly, the parents searched for answers and little Yuvraj's struggles became even more of a hassle. The condition was worsening.
Fortunately, an acquaintance referred them to dr. Vikas Kohli, Child Heart Foundation, is one place that could turn out to be a haven for their child.
And as expected, it did.
dr. Vikas Kohli examined baby Yuvraj and diagnosed him with Tetralogy of Fallot (TOF).
The parents were too stunned to speak, a rush of uncertainty and fear overwhelmed them.
A procedure of BT shunt was executed in 2017 in the hope of helping the baby's symptoms. The fainting stopped, and the parents became much calmer. Yuvraj was able to happily live without any fainting spells chasing the baby away.
However, the bluish skin colour didn't seem to go away.
It seemed like the problem wasn't resolved completely.
Yuvraj didn't gain any weight as other babies of his age do, the normal development seemed stunted.
Medications and treatments only helped a bit, the growth of the baby was drastically slow.
" I have an earning of 20k a month, and I'm in a financial crunch and paying for a surgery worth 4 lakhs isn't a dream that I can afford."
"Child Heart Foundation helped me with the free echo and diagnosis for the baby along with medications,
After much consideration, seeing the issue persisting years later, Dr Vikas Kohli proceed with Total Repair surgery.
And yes, the surgery was a huge success.
"Our boy continues to develop and is still in recovery after the surgery. All of this has been made possible by Child Heart Foundation, and my heart couldn't be any fuller seeing my baby happy and alive!"
Little boy, Yuvraj, watches the world in full curiosity without ever letting a fainting spell woo him.
