50-year-old Monique Mato suffered from prolonged chest pain and shortness of breath. Knowing not what was causing such conditions and apprehending a cardiac disease, Mato underwent an angiogram in his home country, Kenya, where it was found that there was blockage of arteries in her heart. Looking for the best treatment options, she, thereafter, came to India for her treatment.
Which treatment did you undergo in India?
I had a CABG surgery done at Fortis Escorts Heart Institute under Dr. Y.K Mishra. The surgery took about four hours and I had to stay in the hospital for a week. A revision angiogram was performed right before the surgery.
What was found in the angiogram reports?
My chest pain increased with each passing day and gradually I started to experience difficulty in breathing. Although I guessed that there would be a cardiac problem I did not really know that it was so severe. Before coming to India I underwent an angiogram in Kenya and was taken aback by the result of multiple artery blockage.
How do you feel after the surgery?
I feel fit again. I thank Dr. Y.K Mishra and his team for doing such an extraordinary job. I have heard of Dr. Mishra to be one of the best cardiologists in India who has performed more than 14,000 open heart surgeries and I relied on him completely. Within a week of the surgery my life is back to normal and I feel blessed to have made the right choice.
