Renowned singer Alamgir Haq had finally a successful kidney transplant last week after struggling with dialysis for 13 years. After the successful transplant surgery, the Dekha Na Tha singer shared the good news with his fans via video and said,
“By the grace of Allah and your prayers, after 13-years of continuous dialysis, I have received a successful kidney transplant. I got a call from Emery Hospital at 3 AM that a matching kidney has been found and I should reach the hospital in two hours.”
Alamgir told the surgeon who did his surgery had refused to take his case five years ago.
“My turn for the transplant had also come almost five years back but the same surgeon had refused to perform the operation after inspecting my kidneys in detail. My kidneys had enlarged unusually so he decided to remove them.”
Telling his fans about the newly received transplant, Alamgir said,
“The operation was successful. It has been a week since I have come home from the hospital.”
While sharing his experience, the Keh Dena singer told that he was asked to self-isolate himself by the doctors as his immune system is vulnerable presently.
“I have been told not to meet anyone and to not go out under any circumstances. This is because my immune system will not be working to its fullest for at least a month. Subsequently, I have a high risk of contracting Covid-19.”
He also expressed his happiness in the video as now he can eat the food he was forbidden to him for 10 years.
“I can eat everything now,” Alamgir chuckled.
