Medical authorities in the UK are investigating the circumstances surrounding the death of Meena Vij, who did after British surgeon and consultant Carl Wong allegedly transplanted lungs into the patient that were too big to fit into her chest cavity. The transplant took place at Harefield Hospital.
Meena was a member of our support group for Pulmonary Hypertension. She was a lovely person who was hoping for her chance of a transplant to give her the chance of a better life but instead her life was cruelly cut short by an incompetant doctor. I feel so sad for Meena and her family as this was totally unnecessary and a complete waste of a wonderful persons life. Now this man has been struck off he should face criminal charges. He knew he wasn’t capable of such operations but because of his arrogance and pride a young, intelligent woman has paid the price. RIP Meena, we will never forget you.
This truly Is very Very very sad. Trust me I know. We all wish meena was still here wiTh us. She would still have been alive today if she had not been selected for this transplant. She was told the lungs were a perfect match!….her face lit up. We miss her so very much…..she was charming, delightful, beAutiful, articulate, intelligent and highly ambition. She had hopes of what she was going to do after her transplant. She was always positive. She loved helping oThers with the same condition as hers….and was quite an active member of the suPport groups. Meena we miss you so much that it hurts. May god bless you.
