Mohammed Shahid Mughal Returns to Home Country Kenya after a Successful Bypass Surgery in India at Global Hospital

Mohammed Shahid Mughal of Kenya was 48 when he was diagnosed with angina, a type of chest pain caused by reduced blood flow to the heart. His cardiologist in Kenya managed the condition for more than a decade with medications and cardio-versions -- a medical procedure that restores a normal heart rhythm in people with certain types of abnormal heartbeats (arrhythmias).


But after years of limited success with different medications as well as multiple treatments, Mohammed and his cardiologist from Kenya, agreed it was time to consider a different solution. "I started to feel too tired to garden, clean the house and even shower," said Mohammed, who had enjoyed a relatively active lifestyle before he became seriously ill.


Seeing his limited options, his doctor referred Mohammed to India, known for its expertise in atrial fibrillation, coronary artery disease, valve disease and other cardiac conditions. After searching for treatment options online, Mohammed finally came in contact with Vaidam. “I have heard some good things from various people about your company; I have also read reviews in my local classifieds in Kenya and know very well that you guys are the right people to contact in India.” Mohammed soon got in touch with a Vaidam Case Manager and was explained the entire procedure for receiving treatment in India.


After having made travel arrangements for his arrival, Mohammed arrived in Chennai on the 30th of July. To ensure that Muhammad received the best possible care, his case manager made appointments at - Global Hospitals, Chennai. Arriving at the hospital, Mohammed got various tests done, including an angiogram to test his heart. Subsequently, Mohammed had a meeting with Dr Ravi Kumar- top cardiac surgeon. “I was shown the pictures of my heart, clearly indicating four blockages to the coronary arteries.”


Coronary angiogram is an X-ray test used to determine the condition of the heart and the coronary arteries. A cardiologist performs this test using a small catheter, which is inserted through an artery and is advanced through the blood vessels and into the heart. A dye is then injected through the catheter to help the cardiologist visualize a moving picture of blood flow through the coronary arteries while taking X-rays. “In the evening, the surgeon came in to tell me that the angiogram had been successful.”


With each passing day, he could feel himself regaining his strength once again. Dr. Kumar visited Mohammed each day and gave him a prescription of new drugs and recommended lifestyle changes including diet and more exercise. Six days after being discharged from the best and cheap heart hospital in India, Mohamed says, “I feel much better now, I think I can even cross the road from the hospital without anyone’s help.”


After close to two weeks in India, Mohammed finally made his way back to his home country. “I really liked being in India, there are so many memories I will take back with me. The food in the canteen was a bit spicy for my taste; however, I could manage most of my meals. The people are very friendly here and always willing to help.” When asked about his feedback for Vaidam he says: “It is a very essential and necessary service that people in Kenya should know about. I will do my best to spread the word about Vaidam.”


Vaidam would like to wish Mohammed a speedy recovery and a fulfilling life ahead.
