When we go through such situations we release how important our organs are as they can give a new lease of life to many . We should therefore never waste our organs and plan things the way we do in succession planning. She added that my health before the transplant was deteriorating and I had told to doctors that if I need ventilator don’t keep it beyond two days . I had seen my mother on ventilator for 17 days and the pain she had gone through. But at that time I didn’t have the courage to tell the doctors to remove the ventilator. I underwent a successful transplant at Sahyadri Hospitals, Pune to live the beautiful life once again. I have penned down my experiences in my book “Second Go”.
