The man who waited for a heart transplant for 17 years received the good news Kadem Kümbetlioğlu, who has been waiting for a heart transplant for 17 years, received the good news on the eve of the Ramadan Feast. Kümbetlioğlu, who clung to life again with a successful operation, told his story to TRT Haber. Kadem Kümbetlioğlu, a 52-year-old father of 3 children living in Istanbul, started to struggle with heart failure after a crisis 17 years ago... Kümbetlioğlu said that it is bad to live with death every day for 17 years, and said, "You wake up in the morning, you think you will die, but you do not reflect this to your child, your family and your loved ones. You go and try to do something, it's unspeakable..." in his words. "He had very serious rhythm problems" Kümbetlioğlu's doctor Assoc. Prof. Dr. Ünal Aydın said the following about the treatment process: "Mr. Kadem's biggest problem was that he had very serious rhythm problems. He had dozens of times shocked from the battery, which regulates the rhythm we call the ICD from the battery. There were so many of these shocks that the film battery almost ran out. He was going to go for a battery replacement. This has actually been re-enacted twice. Therefore, he was trying to survive in a life-threatening way." "We have no choice but to donate organs" During the pandemic, heart transplant numbers have ground to a halt. At Mehmet Akif Ersoy Thoracic, Cardiovascular Surgery Hospital, the first heart transplant of 2023 was performed on Kümbetlioğlu. Assoc. Prof. Dr. Aydın, explaining that a donation was made from a female patient who had a brain hemorrhage, said, "This is very valuable, because this patient also underwent liver transplantation, kidney transplantation, heart transplantation. Organ donation by the family and by the deceased patients is very valuable. We have no other choice." There are currently 850 patients awaiting a heart transplant Kümbetlioğlu also called for organ donation and said: "I sincerely wish everyone to donate. Here you see me. We slowly returned to life. I will have a good time with my child. I'm going to chat with them. The mindset that I could die in a minute is gone. We threw him out with the surgery." Kümbetlioğlu clung to life again on the eve of the Ramadan Feast, but there are now 850 patients waiting for a heart transplant. Camera: Edebali Koçdemir
