I was used to the life of multitasking for my family and would be on several chores at once. That was just my routine, but one night after having made dinner, I felt an ache on the left side of my neck. I tried to use analgesics but the pain lasted over a week.
When my pain intensified, my husband took me to our family physician who recommended Kamineni Hospitals as I needed quality tertiary care.
At Kamineni Hospitals, Dr. Amarendra Singh conducted further advanced investigations. They found irregularities in my heart, especially the aorta, and the doctor realised that I was at mortal risk with every passing minute. I was taken on cardiopulmonary bypass support and the aortic dissection was repaired with a prosthetic graft replacement. They monitored me closely and carefully weaned me off the ventilator the next day.
The surgery was a success. My blood profile was stabilised and I was discharged after a week. Reuniting with my family has been indescribable and I couldn’t be happier.
