18-year-old "Artyom, Diagnosed to have Post-Covid vaccination "Neurological AE" initially, little did the parents know that their young boy was infact suffering from a rare liver illness "Wilson’s disease".
From Iran to India, where transplant was refused ( in view of severity of his neurological symptoms) after making correct diagnosis, his journey was not less than a roller coaster.
From being restrained to bed, multiple involuntary movements , drooling of saliva , slurring of speech and bed wetting , he faced it all.
Parents had sleepless nights, holding his limbs and calming him to control his cry and screams.
Things didn’t end here when his father (Liver Donor ) became covid positive one day prior to transplant.
Ten days later and one day prior to transplant Artyom turned out to be Covid positive.
Six months down the line, he is here today for a follow-up, waking normally, shaking hands, and thanking the entire liver team.
