Phase I: The problem
Hello, I am Abhijit Lamsoge. I was diagnosed with TB, but it escalated to the collapsed left lung, with major infection in the left lung and severe Hyrdo-Pneumothorax. When Dr. Pawar took my case I was living on just 1 lung. The escalation was major as even after 2 ICD’s and haemo fluid drain my lung was not expanding, as a result of major cortication on lung walls. I also had pleural effusion and there was a contact of lung walls, due to which my lung would never expand.
Phase II: The Saviour
When we shifted our treatment to Dr. Mahesh Pawar at KEM hospital things started to look better. Firstly, He was very friendly and very confident that surgical intervention was required to save or re-expand my left lung. The level of authority he had on my condition was above brilliance. A lot of other doctors believed that my lung should be removed.
Phase III: The Resolution
Thoracotomy, De-Cortication, and Segmental Lobectomy were suggested, well that scares you off, but Dr. Mahesh Pawar insisted to me that I have confidence in myself and assured my family members that he will do the best he can. Well, guess what, the surgery lasted for 8-9 hours, my family members clinging to their seats outside the OT, Dr. Pawar came out to them and said, “The Operation was successful, my lung was not removed and everything went well”, all the while I was out. But when I woke up, he told me “Don’t worry we took care of it and all looks good” Finally I was Alive.
Phase IV: The Recovery
The stitches were removed by him and he looked and me and said. You look excellent.
I believe, if it would not have been for Dr. Mahesh Pawar, I would have become history by now. I recommend everyone who has a critical illness visit him, he will guide you the best and you shall recover fine.
