Cancer can happen to anyone and at any age. But when there is a will, there is a way. This is story of a 60 years old Mr. Ratnakar Gurav ( name changed ), a retired teacher from Ratnagiri. He was living a healthy and happy life after retirement. But life is not always the same. Since last 6 months he was suffering from a dull minor but recurrent pain in abdomen.
Ratnakar visited their family physician to know the cause of his pain. Initially, pain was thought to be some gastric upset due to indigestion and hence doctor prescribed him medication. After taking medicine, patient got relief from pain. But, after few days, again pain reoccurred and this time, it was associated with hardness on right side. Therefore, the family doctor advised him to see a gastro doctor in Ratnagiri city . The gastroenterologist advised Ratnakar for a CT Scan and few other tests.The scan showed that he had a large mass approx 12 X10 cm in the right lobe of liver. Patient and his family was shocked and also scared after knowing about his liver tumour.
Doctor referred the patient to go Pune for further treatment. After taking consultation from many other doctors, patient was not sure about treatment. Finally he was advised to visit Dr. Mahesh Pawar. Then patient along with his family came to Care Speciality Hospital and visited Dr. Mahesh Pawar. During their first visit, patient and his family realised that Dr. Pawar is best cancer doctor for his treatment.
Dr. Pawar and his team investigated patient further and performed PET CT Scan. In reports, it has been observed that the tumour is Non metastatic. The AFP 260 and CA 19.9 was normal. Dr. Pawar advised him for cancer surgery immediately. The patient agreed on doctors decision and decided to go for cancer surgery. A major surgery of liver resection was planned . Almost 40 percent of liver had to be removed to completely remove the cancerous tumour . Dr. Pawar and his expert team performed the surgery successfully. Right hepatic resection was done and segment V VI and VII ( 5 6 7 ) excised. Patient responded to surgery well and recovered successfully without any complications. He was discharged in 5 days after surgery . The final Hpr was margin free.
So, don’t get panic if you are also cancer patient. Now it is easy to beat the demon of cancer with right treatment at right hospital.
