What he/she says
My Father was diagnosed with AML- M1 (Acute Myelogenous Leukemia without maturation) (M1) admitted in a problematic condition four months back so, I want to share few things how we came to know this and overcame this phase.
My father is 55yr old man who doesn’t have any BP or sugar he was very healthy man. He was working in an industry from past 30yrs. 8months back he was effected with tonsillitis problem as he already has sinus problems we ignored and used medication suggested by local ENT doctor, after few days his tonsils problem was increased and also he used to get fever alternative days, gradually within a days he lost weight and became little weak, we thought all of these problems are because of tonsils and no anti-biotics helped him to overcome all those. Finally we decided to get operate, the first two ENT doctors couldn’t recognize my father health condition seeing his blood reports. We turn to Dr. Sateesh (Holistic Hospital Nizampet) operation took 2 hrs. Which should be done in 40mints because of the high infection. Post operation he proposed to consult a “good hematologist” and doubted that my father has cancer cells in the blood.
It was very tough time for us heeding to that and decided to consult a good hematologist. Now when we took him near Dr. Gupta sir he was unable to intake food, urination problem, continuous fever, body pains and he Lost 12kg weight in a month time.
We don’t have any idea about these cancer, Gupta sir was very patient with us explained in a clear way and said that these are Leukemia symptoms. After Bone Marrow test &cytogenetics ,molecular testing came to confirmation that he as Leukemia with the balsts of 80% in his blood and the cancer cells very growing very fast. Doctor suggested for the 4 settings of chemotherapy (out of 4:–>first was to control the cancer,remaining three to minimize risk of reacurrence) Dr Gupta gave us good support to be strong and overcome these dreadful disease. He explained initial hurdles we are going to phase while the chemo process. Undoubtedly his care towards patient was fabulous.
He was started Chemotherapy from 14/ / 17 for 7days.. Within 1 week chemo process was done but he has side effects like loose motions, throat pain, fever, jaundice, unable to take food not even liquids. Seriously for 7-10days we were in a great lost state because of the side effects. Gradually with medications under supervision of * **** doctor and good hospitality of nurses he overcame all side effects. Other than medication alternatively patient needs additional supplements of blood – Platelets, WBC, and normal blood. Almost every day Gupta sir will meet his patients talk with his patients for some time he will ask about the condition, improvement and motivate in a good way. Immune power goes to zero the patient should fight the disease the will power of the patient should be so strong our doctor has motivated my dad a lot. Not only good medication family support, hygienic area and high protein food are also primary things to overcome these side effects. Close to month my dad got discharged after bone marrow test. By god’s grace his report has ballast was less than 1%. All his side effects came down and back came to his normal life style.
We admitted periodically as per doctor suggestion and get done other set of chemo’s treatments these did not affect much only lite fevers and blood counts were low. Not only the treatment we should also take care of the patients as they lose weight and we should give them good amount of protein food, fruits, oats, boiled pulses, high amount of Luke warm water, keep way from pollution, they will be not willing to have food but we should take care of them in a way.Now at end of 2nd chemotherapy he has gained 8 to 9 kg weight.My father fought with the dreadful disease.
