Princess D’s Journey – Courage and Perseverance

Embarking on a challenging medical journey, 2-year-old joyful Baby D confronts Right Duplex Kidney with much courage. Under the medical guidance of Dr. Kevin Teerovengadum, Princess D underwent a significant surgery in August 2023, bringing her closer to a healthier future. As Princess D’s journey continues, the upcoming surgery for removal of stent in November 2023 reflects the ongoing dedication to her well-being, ensuring she receives the care and support she needs to thrive.

The M & S Foundation generously contributed 2/3rd of the overall cost of the surgery. This baby girl’s story is not just about medical procedures; it is a narrative of resilience, compassion and enduring hope.

Duplex kidney, also called duplicated ureters, is a problem with the urinary tract where there are two ureters draining urine from a single kidney. It is more common in females than males and is an unpreventable birth defect. There are surgeries available to fix the problem, but most issues simply resolve on their own.

Duplex kidney is the result of errors in cell division that occur during the development of the foetus inside the uterus. There is no evidence to suggest that anything during pregnancy causes the defect. However, there is evidence indicating that the condition can be inherited from parent to child. If one parent has a duplex kidney, the child has a 50-50 chance of also being born with this condition.
