LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) – PH is the abbreviation for pulmonary hypertension. It’s a form of heart disease that can affect all age groups and all ethnicities.
But how serious is it?
A woman was diagnosed five and a half years ago with pulmonary hypertension. She’s a miracle because the life expectancy after diagnosis is three years. The first two years were miserable, she said.
“And the third year i put my foot down and said ‘I’m not gonna do this anymnore,’” she said. “I’m gonna find something. And I wanted to get a pulmonary hypetension specialist in Arkansas, so it’s a dream come true.”
Dr. Muhammad Waquas is her dream come true.
