What he/she says
I am KP Gowrishankar from Bangalore aged 57years, I wish to give u a brief account of my Experience with Cancer , of whatever I have gone through.
As we all know Cancer is a dreaded disease which sends chills down the spine of the patient & his family members , if late be treated we are on the threshold of death which is a very dreadful experience. I was having frequent hike in temperature & then about one or two hours at a time & my tiredness started increasing progressively, biopsy was conducted & it was identified I had Cancer detected as T cell Lymphoma a aggressive type of Cancer, on learning about this me, my wife & my sister were in a state of confusion not knowing what to do.
We were advised to visit Apollo Hospitals, HCG, Manipal Hospitals & Narayana Hrudayalaya Which are reputed for treating Cancer on visiting these hospitals we met Dr.SK Gupta at HCG, During consultation he gave us an assurance that the disease could be cured , during consultation I had many apprehensions & doubts i had asked you if chemotherapy was painful, you had replied that it does not involve any pain and the side effects would only be nausea & vomiting , which could be controlled by medication, which proved to be true & asked us to go through six cycles of chemotherapy .His smiling countenance & way of communication gave us a lot of confidence, I immediately went through a PET Scan & it was found that i had 4th stage of Cancer.
Dr. SK Gupta started me on chemotherapy immediately, he used to visit me daily & assure me that everything was going fine which was very comforting, During each cycle I was given a injection in the spine to control the spread of the disease to the central nervous system & in the procedure room I used to ask many questions which were all answered patiently & assuringly without me knowing that injection was administered.
During consultation between each cycle I used to feel very depressed & the doctor used to assure me that the results were more than what he expected which instilled a lot of confidence in me.
Unfortunately Dr. SK Gupta had to leave for Hyderabad after 4 cycles & without an alternative i had to continue my treatment at another hospital, when i realised the difference between Dr. SK Gupta & other doctors.
He is very professional & his first priority are his patients he visits the patient irrelevant of which time of day it is depending on the patients needs, comforts the patient & instils confidence can confidently say my mentally fought the disease with his help & encouraging words which cunts a lot as fighting the disease mentally is also a significant step to resist the disease.
By the end of 4th cycle another biopsy was conducted & it was found that the Cancer was completely cured.
I once again thank Dr. SK Gupta for the care that he has shown when i was his patient, even after that he has given me medical advice over phone whenever needed after I was discharged from his care.
May God bless him & may his tribe increase
