Elizabeth Chigwedere from Zambia Knows How it Feels to Conquer an Indelible Tumor by Retroperitoneal Tumor Excision in India at BLK Hospital

Elizabeth Chigwedere from Zambia breathes a sigh of relief after fruitful excision of bygone recurring peritoneal liposarcoma - a rare type of cancer that affects fatty tissues of the body. She had been going through this agonising condition since 2009. She has had as many as 4 laparotomies since then. Her last surgery was done in March 2018. However, her symptoms recurred after a while. After being left exasperated by all the futile efforts, she decided to contact Vaidam. With Vaidam’s assistance, she was able to do a thorough exploration and decided to consult Dr. Kapil Kumar at BLK hospital, New Delhi - one of the top 10 best cancer hospitals in India. Dr.Kapil Kumar is one of the best oncologist doctors in India.

 

The patient landed in New Delhi on July 5th, 2018. Her appointment was arranged with the oncologist on July 6th, 2018 by Elizabeth’s case manager. A complete medical case history and a detailed physical examination was done. A series of diagnostic tests including an x-ray, CT scan, MRI, PET scan, and ultrasound revealed that her right kidney was entirely engulfed by the tumor and stopped functioning. As per the doctor, she needed retroperitoneal tumor excision as chemotherapy or radiotherapy would not be effective. Thereafter, the patient was scheduled to undergo mass excision along with cystoscopy with left ureteric catheterisation and right nephrotomy.

A CT scan and an MRI was done before performing the surgery to know the extent of spread of the tumor. This was followed by inducing general anesthesia and placing the patient in a lithotomy position. The procedure took a couple of hours to complete and went well.

 

Elizabeth is completely fine now. She is in the hospital for the recovery. The patient is conscious and well oriented. She has been placed on nasogastric aspiration. She will go back to her hometown on August 29, 2018. She is advised to have chest physiotherapy.

 

Finally, Elizabeth will be able to live a cancer-free and jovial life. She expressed that she had a great time in India.  She is glad that she will be able to go back to good health.
