Nagpur youth gets part of liver from younger bro in the nick of time

Nagpur resident Pratik Chaudhary (28), who was diagnosed with acute liver failure, got a fresh lease of life on Thursday after his school-going brother donated a part of his liver to him.

Doctors at Global Hospital, where the surgery was conducted, have given Pratik having ayurvedic medicine as one of the reasons for the ailment.

But while the brothers are stable and recovering well, the story does not end for the Chaudhary family. They have to pay Rs25 lakh for the procedure. A few of Pratik's college friends, who came to the city to raise funds for his treatment, have managed to collect Rs8 lakh so far and are continuing to run around to arrange for the rest of the amount.

Pratik's mother is taking care of him and his brother Mangesh. Their father is no more and she used to work as a clerk with the state forest department.

Pratik's friend from Pune Suyog Joshi, who is among those who have come here for him, said, "Most from our college group contributed for the treatment, but we have only managed to collect Rs8 lakh. We are approaching different sources to get the rest."

Pratik, who is an electronics and telecommunication engineer, takes coaching classes. On April 26, his health deteriorated and the family had to rush him to Mumbai in an air ambulance from Nagpur, at a cost of Rs3.5 lakh.

His childhood friend from Yavatmal, Mangesh Dhote, said, "On Friday, we approached an official from the Chief Minister's Medial Aid Fund and got a positive response. Accordingly, we submitted the required documents."

Liver transplant surgeon, Global Hospital, Dr Ravi Mohanka said, "We are trying ascertain the exact reason behind the liver failure. We conducted a battery of tests but haven't found anything conclusive. At the moment his having taken ayurvedic medicine for a month seems the most likely explanation."

Ayurveda experts, however, have a different opinion. Dr KR Kohli, director of Directorate of Ayurved, Maharashtra, said, "It's false to say that ayurvedic drugs damage any organ. Allopathy doctors always blame ayurvedic drugs, but there is no scientific proof to substantiate the claim. Ayurvedic drugs have been around for the last 1,300 years."
