The Cameroonian Twins Pheinbom and Shevoboh, who were successfully separated on Saturday, 21 April 2007 after 16 hours of long operations, and have been under strict and constant monitoring in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit of King Abdulaziz Medical City have done remarkably well and became stable. They have returned to their normal activity and diet and they did not experience any problems or complications.
The Multidisciplinary Team decided to discharge them today, Sunday, 1 July 2007 from the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) to the General Pediatric Ward in order to prepare them for discharge to their home country in a few weeks. They will require a period of physiotherapy and rehabilitation to enable their extremities to function normally.
Dr. Abdullah Al Rabeeah, the Head of the Multidisciplinary Team stated that Pheinboom who experienced problems of pulmonary hypertension and increased pressure in pulmonary vessels has stabilized and improved dramatically over the last few weeks. She is now breathing and eating normally and has regained her normal activity and diet.
Both twins are now interacting cheerfully, smiling, and playing with their parents and the hospital staff.
