Natasha Thomas is nearly 14 years old and is a resident of Delhi. While being 4 months old, she once had the symptoms of asthma. Being unaware of the symptoms, the parents took the child to a nearby doctor. During that time, the doctor helped by giving medicines to the child. After a month the symptoms triggered again. The child was immediately taken to the Fortis Hospital Okhla, where she received a full body check-up and therapies.
How did parents receive help?
The parents were informed that their 4 months child was going through the symptoms of asthma. The triggers went so serious that they caused the collapse of both lungs.
The parents were given guidance regarding how to treat the symptoms with complete care and adjustability of timing.
Since the age of the child was the major concern and the doctors were unable to have an operation or therapy, the parents were guided with counseling and the child was treated with oral medications or injections.
During the time, the parents got to know the complete details with the help of the doctors of Fortis Hospital Okhla.
When the child became 12 years old, the aggressive symptoms of asthma arrived again. This caused the doctor to have the child receive an operation. The child had to go through small therapy which had her triggers suppressed.
Natasha Thomas is now 14 years old and is eagerly understanding her disease. She is the growing-up girl who understands how to fight the symptoms of asthma with more than 3 or 4 times the triggers being suppressed than earlier. She is now doing her routine of attending school, fighting with her younger brother, growing up with the flares of life, and helping herself to fight the symptoms. She now understands how to relieve herself when asthma attacks her body and is openly having the use of asthma medicines with the concern of her school authorities.
Ankita Sehgal is the only daughter of her parents. During the time of shifting the house, she was around 10 years old and was playing eagerly with her housemaid. While doing the role of student and playing the teacher-teacher game, the 10-year-old child, Ankita, was unaware that she would be soon facing surgery. While playing in the new house, with the happiness of meeting new neighbors and making new friends, Ankita had to suffer through a major accident. It was around 10 p.m. during the night when her parents were busy doing the household chores and managing the things for the new house. While her parents were doing the chores, Ankita was busy playing with the housemaid. She entered the room, and all of a sudden, she fell to the ground. She was only 10 years old with a charm on her face. Because of the fall, she had to lose her two front teeth and had to go through extreme bleeding because of the internal injury in her jaw.
How did Ankita Sehgal receive help?
For the sake of an emergency, her parents went to the dental doctor in Fortis Hospital Okhla, New Delhi through the medium of Credihealth.
Also, there was intense bleeding, because of which the child would have developed the need for blood donation.
Because of the child's being underweight and having a very weak and lean body, the doctors were amazed and were confused about how to treat the 10-year-old.
She was in immediate need of blood, which would have to be given in around 2 hours.
It was through the help of Credihealth and Fortis Hospital Okhla that the parents of Ankita came to receive the help of the same blood type.
On the other hand, Ankita had to go through a small surgery to fix her lower jaw which was affected because of the injury.
It took around 5 days for the doctors to fix the jaw and additional three days for the recovery. The doctors also helped Ankita with extreme weight loss management.
Today, Ankita is 16 years old and is still receiving medicines for her asymmetric jaw that has affected her jaw motion while talking. Although she is receiving medicine, she is capable of thinking about her future. The family is now thankful to the Fortis Hospital Okhla, New Delhi and the platform Credihealth for their timely treatment.
