CARE AND CURE: THE STORY OF AN 11 YEAR OLD BLOOD CANCER PATIENT AT HBII

Hematology and BMT Institute International is a Hospital that specialises in the treatment of all forms of blood, bone marrow, lymph nodes, spleen disorders, cancer and non cancer disorders providing a wide variety of programs spanning from inpatient day care clinics, a blood bank and laboratory to an outpatient facility. HBII has successfully treated many patients, and Mir Mohammed Shoaib Ali is one of them. This is his story.

A child and his journey towards recovery

Mir Mohammed Shoaib Ali was diagnosed with cancer at a very young age in October 2019. It all started with a mild cough, cold and fever. Even after taking a lot of antibiotics and iron supplements, there was no difference in his health condition. After several CBC tests, it was revealed that the child had blood cancer. Both the parents were shattered but, despite the setback, they mustered the courage to assess the situation further in terms of the treatment, the procedure, and the risks factors behind it. Even after visiting a lot of doctors, they were not satisfied with the suggested course of treatment. It was after some research that they finally came to know about Hematology and BMT Institute International and met Dr S. K. Gupta. 

Dr. Gupta sat them down patiently and explained to them the treatment in detail; its phases, the procedures, medications, the possible outcomes of chemotherapy and its side effects. He explained to them that the treatment duration would be difficult for the family, and stressed on the measures they could take to overcome the difficult time. 

Firstly, the doctor recommended doing all the blood tests like CBC, LFT, RFT, CUE, blood and urine cultures, CRP, Serology and immunology test, PT, INR, and aPTT.  He then started giving the child antibiotics through IV-fluids to overcome the growth of the disease. The doctor cleared the bacterial infection from the blood and on 14th October advised the patient and his family to go for chemo-port installation procedure along with CSF/body fluid analysis for hematopoietic malignancy.

During the first phase of treatment, the doctor scheduled the Induction therapy where the child was kept on VCR, DOXO and IT-MTX in his protocol with intensive care and treatment for two months. In this time, the patient’s blasts disappeared (from 72% to 0%), haemoglobin level increased, and most importantly, TLC counts increased to 9.611 from 1.6/ml. 

All the necessary precautions and measures were taken to make sure that the boy would have the strength to overcome cancer. He conducted regular checkups, blood tests and also charted out a diet plan which was rich in proteins, so that the kid would have the strength during chemotherapy sessions.  Even during the COVID-19 pandemic, Dr Gupta successfully treated the child without causing any sort of complications. 

There was a huge difference in the boy’s health after he started receiving treatment from Dr S K Gupta. The ecstatic mother said,  

I would recommend Dr S K Gupta sir, who is highly experienced, thoroughly professional and an expert in treating blood-related disorders. I must say he is one of the top hematologists in the world.”
