30-year old Tanaya Pandit underwent a heart transplant surgery early in the morning on Thursday. She was taken off the ventilation after about 4hours of the surgery and the first thing she asked for was the doctors and nurses team who operated upon her and brought her back to life.
She wanted to give a ‘Tika’ to all of them who were involved in her operation at Fortis Hospital Anandapur.
“We were extremely surprised that she actually remembered which day it was so soon after being taken off ventilation and even remembered it was Bhai Phonta(Bhai Dooj),” said cardiac surgeon Tapas Raychaudhury, who along with surgeon K.M. Mandana had led the team of doctors that conducted the surgery on Thursday.
In the absence of chandan (sandalwood paste) and kajal, traditionally used to give Tika, the nurses of the isolation room in the intensive care unit, ground a paracetamol tablet and created a paste with water for her.
“She did all this 30 hours after the surgery and just three hours after being taken off ventilation, which is remarkable for a recipient in a heart transplant,” said Raychaudhury.
Tanaya, has been suffering from dilated cardiomyopathy, a condition in which the heart muscles loosen and its pumping capacity reduces, since 2010 and doctors had said heart transplant was the only answer.
She is grateful to her donor, Debolina Ghosh, who was declared brain dead a day earlier at AMRI hospital.
Such are the things and blessings that make doctors go beyond their usual capacity to treat their patients.
