While the level of breast cancer awareness in our country is low, there are various myths that need to be busted as well. Creating awareness needs to be a slow and sustained process. I strongly believe there is light at the end of the tunnel. Read on.. https://www.patientsengage.com/news-and-views/learn-right-method-breast-self-examination-bse

RISING TO THE OCCASION Yesterday, this beautiful young lady of 33 walked into my room. I could see she had had chemotherapy as a smart bandana adorned her bald head. She was accompanied by her mother and her husband. Her dazzling smile and her confidence as she took me through the journey of nursing a 6 month old baby, of discovering a lump which was labelled benign at first, of the lump growing in a month and she, of her own volition going for a biopsy and discovering she had breast cancer, shook me! She had visited 3 or 4 hospitals for various reasons and is on the verge of completing chemotherapy. She had come to meet me to discuss the surgical options and the implications. She told me that she was scared of needles and pain but her composed demeanour conveyed something else. I could see, I was having the privilege of interacting with a woman of utmost strength, resilience, poise and maturity way beyond her years. Her smile never left her face. Her mother contributed positively in equal measure but the sadness in her eyes of seeing her little girl suffer did not escape my notice. She required to have an injection to up her white cell count. She went to the nurse in the treatment room for the same and showed her a prescription for the same on her mobile, from a different hub of the same centre as ours. She refused without thinking what she could have done to help her-a cardinal mistake! The nurse was following a process, which said no medication without prescription, which was fine. What she did not do, was figure out a method to solve the problem. She could have got a print out, on our institute’s letter head and cross checked with the prescribing doctor and administered the medication. What happened next was no surprise. The mother was outraged. She had accompanied her daughter across half of Delhi for a consult and this Nay from the sister, truly rocked her frail boat. She truly took the nurse to task for being unhelpful and uncaring. The situation was brought to my notice.The matter was sorted out, a printout of the prescription was taken and the injection was done. However, the bitter taste in the mouth remained! I know for a certainty, that the only people who go to hospital, happily, are doctors and the staff at work. The ailing come, as they don’t have an option. They entrust us with the job of sending them back, cured or relieved of their ailment. We, as caregivers, should never forget to look beyond and see the footprints that they have left behind, as they walk the difficult path to meet us. There is a story, sometimes, most heart rending, that we need to know- a story that should only raise our level of empathy. Each one of us has to walk that extra mile, go beyond our call of duty to ensure that we do our best for the person sitting across the table, entrusting us with making some of the toughest decisions of their lives. We, as professionals, have to really rise to the occasion, every single time!
LETTING GO
During my years in medical school, it was always tough to lay your hands on the best books available. They were outrageously expensive for a middle class student like me. My dad would still want me to have the best. He would put aside his needs and my mother would spend less on the essentials so that I could have expensive reference books in medicine and surgery. I devoured on Harrison’s Principles of Internal Medicine and Schwartz’s Surgical textbook. They were hard to reproduce in the exams but were succinct in their explanations of the various diseases that plagued the amazing human body.
The last I read from these books is more than 20 years. They occupied a corner on my bookshelf and gathered dust. They would catch the corner of my eye, occasionally and I would clear the dust as a sweeping sense of nostalgia overcame me. With my daughter’s books jostling for space, I decided to make space for her while the house was being painted. I brought these old books down, turned a few pages with a lump catching my throat. I realised, there time was past.All the information I ever wanted was just a click of a button away. A lot has changed since the time they were the only prized possessions I ever had. They had to go... the new had to make space for the old. Their life had come one full circle!
