Being a navy captain myself, I was a charismatic traveller until I discovered I had chronic kidney disease. Hello there! Myself Capt. Rajiv from Bihar. I was suffering from cronic kidney disease since 2005 . My journey of medical uncertainty started since then. I had consulted almost all the big names in the field of Nephrology, Urology and Transplantation in the country. At this point I would like to mention that my root cause of kidney problem was urological disorder since my childhood. I went through many surgeries including twice bilateral uretric reimplant. Despite best efforts of various other doctors still I suffered from huge financial loss and physical debility and ended up on dialysis bed in the month of April 2018. I decided to go for my kidney transplant and my wife was my potential donor. When I went to my treating nephro and uro they refused her to consider for donation. One more thing I would like to mention since this point no doctor told me the route cause of my problem. Everybody said after this surgery things will be back to normal but no one actually knew how is it going to happen. At this point of disappointment one of my Known recommended me to Great Doctor Priyadarshi Ranjan!!! I accessed his YouTube videos and decided to give a last go. I came to visit him with my wife frankly with no hope!!! . But once I met Dr. Ranjan, I saw a big ray of light of my normal life. He gave me full access on my disease. He explained me everything in very logical, scientific and practical way and Gave me the real reason that my route cause is Neurogenic bladder which damaged my both kidneys. Believe me at that point only I decided to hand over my fate to him. The way he gave me confidence of successful transplant in logical way, I was totally convinced. I can play blind on this that he is the best transplant surgeon in India and a real gentleman.He also sorted out the problem of my wife for which she was refused for donation. God has given special gift to his hands and he is the doctor you can expect a miracle coming. In my case I can say it with full confidence. During my pre transplant evaluation the staff transplant coordinator nurse was dedicated for us during entire test process just to make sure I should not face any difficulty. All the evaluation was done successfully and in a hassle free manner within the stipulated time. My transplant was done On 2nd December 2019 by the blessed hands of Dr. Priyadarshi Ranjan. I was still worried from inside but Dr. Ranjan was fully confident. And I am very much thankful to ** ****** *** **** ***** ***** Dr. Ranjan. ICU stay was also vey caring. Specially would like to thanks to all the supporting and coordinating professionally qualified staff of Dr. Ranjan who helped and guided in very decent and cooperative way in all the process starting from day one till now. Now I am feeling great after transplant and my wife is also perfectly all right. I once again thanks to Dr. Priyadarshi Ranjan Sir for giving me second life. He is a real miracle man and great human being. May God bless him with all success in his life. Once again thanking you Dr. Ranjan.
I am enthralled to pen down my experience after my life saving kidney transplant. I was leading a very painful life on dialysis since 2015.
I am Pawan Kumar Gill, age 56yrs, from Jalandhar. I want to share my journey from Jalandhar to Fortis Hospital, Mohali for Kidney Transplant. I was suffering from High Creatinine Level, TLC and Blood Urea for the past two years and have consulted different hospitals. But after many consultations result was not good and slowly my creatinine went to the highest level. On 8th January 2019, I underwent dialysis at Escort Fortis Hospital at Amritsar. Then I observed that dialysis is not a solution but temporary support only, due to dialysis complication we decided for transplant and my wife Kuljeet Gill stood for donating one of her kidney. Then we decided to consult Dr Priyadarshi Ranjan at Fortis Hospital, Mohali. The name of Dr Ranjan was suggested by a Gurgaon based senior Nephrologist and one of my friend from Jalandhar. Moreover, I searched in social media that "Dr Ranjan is Kidney Man of India". He is reputed for his innovative and dynamic Surgical capabilities. He is the most successful Kidney Transplant surgeon. After successful surgery on 26/02/2019 and now under regular consultation in OPD. All the TICU staff and OPD sisters are very cooperative and familiar. I never felt I m in a hospital, always feel like sitting with my own family. Kudos to Dr Ranjan & his team. Thank you, Dr Ranjan, for giving me new hope. Many more will be benefited from your experience. It is truly said that doctors are next to God. In my case, it is proved also. I pray to almighty for you and your team success in personal and professional life. Name - Pawan Kumar Gill
I’m Barpinder Singh Sandhu age 25 years recently I’m living in British Columbia, Canada. In May 2018 I had mild pain in my lungs. I went to the doctor in Welland he gave me antibiotics and anti-inflammatory drugs. After that when I went for a chest x-ray and there was cavitation in the upper lobes of both lungs. Then I went to a hospital in Niagara Falls and the story was the same. There they diagnosed that I am suffering from tuberculosis. After that respirologist did a bronchoscopy and didn’t find tuberculosis as sputum cultures were also negative. I moved to British Columbia from Ontario in June. Over there I went to surrey memorial hospital and they diagnosed that I am done with my kidneys and my creatinine level was 928. After the report of kidney biopsy, I came to know that the reason behind my kidney failure is ANCA VASCULITIS. I was on dialysis three times a week from 2nd August 2018. Doctors over there told me that we can’t go for transplantation before June 2019 and after that, the doctor will decide how long it will take to get a transplant. No time limits. During that time I have searched for good nephrologist in India. Because I wanted to get treatment in India. I came to know about Dr Priyadarshi Ranjan. I decided to visit the doctor as soon as possible. I came to India on 22nd December 2018. I had a good conversation with doctor Ranjan and he told me to get permission from Rheumatologist before transplant. After getting approval from Rheumatologist, I have done with my all tests and then the whole team planned transplant on 11th March 2019. So finally with the efforts of every single person of team (Dr Priyadarshi Ranjan, Dr Somesh, Dr Anuradha, Priyanka, Reena, Shashi, Varinder, Kiran ) transplant was successful. After transplant nursing staff in TICU was so co-operative. And now I’m perfect and living my healthy life and I will go back soon.
