SURGERY FOR BREAST CANCER IS NOT ABOUT REMOVING BREASTS, ALWAYS… When 32 year old Neena, an HR consultant in an MNC, walked into my clinic, accompanied by her husband and parents, I could sense an air of hopelessness surrounding this good looking young lady. The papers that were laid in front of me carried a needle biopsy report, which confirmed the diagnosis of breast cancer. Fortunately, for her, the size of the lump was about 2cms and there were no lymph nodes that I could feel in the armpit. There was no evidence of spread to the other organs on imaging. I soon realized she had been through the discussion of surgery and she had come to me for a second opinion. I soon found out why she had decided to come for a second opinion. She had been advised a modified radical mastectomy (complete removal of the breast along with the lymph nodes in the armpit). She was a successful career woman with everything going for her till yesterday and today she was grappling with this tough predicament- losing an organ, an integral part of her feminity to cancer- it was almost cruel!.......... ....To be continued.....watch this space for more.......

Cancer is often viewed as the end of the road in many ways, especially for the young afflicted with cancer. While the diagnosis of cancer, in itself, can be devastating for them, the consequences of treatment can actually push them further into a corner. One such situation arising out of treatment is infertility, a topic which was rarely broached with the young and old alike, till the recent past. With due care and sensitivity to these needs of the patients, it is possible to reverse a lot of wrong that treatment can bring in its wake! That brings me to the story of this young Champion I wish to share with you.The main protagonist of this story is a young Doctor diagnosed with breast cancer aged 26 years about 6 years ago. She was devastated! She was engaged to her sweetheart- a young Doctor training to be a surgeon. She was looking forward to a beautiful life when she was struck by breast cancer. This was more than what any girl her age could take. But she was different!She had spunk and was not willing to let go, of the life she had dreamt of. She soon collected herself to ask the right questions of her doctors. She wanted to preserve her fertility and after consulting an infertility specialist, had her ova preserved. She underwent treatment, thereafter and had breast conservation surgery followed by chemotherapy, radiation and 5 years of hormonal treatment, supported by her fiancé who stood by her like a rock.She was married to him soon after treatment. She is on follow up and all is well. The story doesn’t end here. She called me last week to share a piece of good news. She had given birth to a healthy baby boy two months ago. I was besides myself with joy and both of us laughed merrily over the phone. She came over two days ago with her bundle of joy cradled in her arms, her eyes overflowing with the selfless love of a mother. I could imagine what it meant to her. And this had happened naturally!! However bad the situation, life does turn up trumps on many occasions. These Champs give a new meaning to hope and I am wiser for it. If I am optimistic, you know where it comes from!! #health #breast cancer # breast conservation surgery #infertility #Max Hospital #Patparganj
Does cancer give you a new lease of life? 
Today, a patient, Mrs Sharma (name changed), I had treated 2 years back, came for follow up to my clinic with her very beautiful and supportive daughter.When I saw her two years ago, I was taken aback by the fact that an educated lady like her had ignored a lump in the breast completely to let it grow to the size she came to me with. Big it was....ulcerated, infected and bleeding. She had large lymph nodes in her armpit.She was weak and it made me wonder if it was the anemia due to chronic blood loss from the breast cancer or spread of disease to other organs which was contributing to this. I was almost certain she would have spread to other organs. Fortunately for her, her PET CT did not show spread to the other organs.The lady was amazing....she knew she was in big trouble, but she was most cheerful and accepting. She was dealing with a lot in life already....a husband confined to bed for two years prior to her diagnosis and a son who had lost his bearings.I knew then her reason for self neglect. She went through the entire treatment, cheerfully and recovered. She went back to looking after her ill husband till he passed away a few months back. 
Today she surprised me. She looked well.....and I thought a bit relieved.I examined her, went through her reports ....she was absolutely fine. She was her happy self. She dug out a packet from her bag and gave it to me.She said she had made that bag and told me how she had started this NGO to support women in Haryana. They made the bags according to her specifications.... Beautiful bag! She was putting her talent to good use and just talking about it lit up her face.Mrs Sharma had rediscovered herself and will soon embark on fulfilling yet another dream -to paint and hold an exhibition.And then she is off to Canada to meet her friend of 50 years.Wow!!I can only salute her resilience! I want her to know, she really made me proud!!
