'Cancer is by no Means Invincible'

DNA India

By Dr Kumaresh Krishnamurthy

Around this time last year, I was getting radiation after a long surgery and a painful recovery period. Though I did not see the tumour, my wife Dr Gayatri, who is a pathologist, saw it and was hoping that my diagnosis would not be malignant. Prior to that, I was suffering from severe pain, inability to eat, pain while passing urine and even motion in my urine. All this while, my tests were negative and there were only suspicions and conflict of opinion as to how to manage me.

Finally, I was taken up for surgery which lasted for seven hours. My physicians made every attempt to hide the diagnosis so that I could recover before the news was conveyed to me.

I still remember those painful days. The first day was tough with Ryles Tube in my mouth which was extremely uncomfortable. I had tubes and wires all over my body –tube in my mouth, urinary catheter, and two drains in my operated site, a suprapubic catheter, ECG leads and pulse oximeter.
