Assistant Supervisor from Singareni Collieries Shares his Liver Transplant Experience
Mr. Chityala Chiranjeevi from Adilabad district, Telangana works as an assistant supervisor at Singareni Collieries. He was suffering from liver problems for two years. His liver had become stiff and it had two tumours.
He underwent a liver transplant surgery at CARE Hospitals, Visakhapatnam in October 2015. He and his wife spoke to us in detail about their experience with Prof. Tom Cherian, Head, Hepato Biliary Surgery and Liver Transplantation at CARE Hospitals Group. Here are a few excerpts from it:
“My liver problem began 2 years back. One day, suddenly my entire body was swollen. I had also contracted jaundice. I took treatment for one year but no one ever informed me that liver disease was such a life-threatening disease.
But when I visited Dr. Tom Cherian here, he called me and my family members and explained the criticality of the situation and that I needed a liver transplant.
Dr. Tom Cherian prepared me mentally for the surgery. He used to counsel me every time I visited him. The other staff members were also very cooperative,” Mr. Chiranjeevi said.
His wife, who can also be seen in the video remarked, “My husband’s condition improved a lot after the surgery. Before the surgery he was very sick and we were all afraid seeing his condition. But he recovered so much in just one month that we are all stunned. All this was possible only because of the support extended by Dr. Tom Cherian. CARE Hospitals truly lives up to its name. It takes good care of people!”
