After 5 years of regular PET Scan, Faiyum Mohammad thought that he had finally been cured of testicular cancer. Little did he know that he would have to undergo a medical treatment again. In 2016, when he checked in the hospital at Fiji due to his stomach pain, he found out that there was a large tumour in his stomach. He therefore came to India for his treatment.
When did you feel that you would have to visit the hospital again?
I had a lot of pain in my stomach. I could feel that there was a ball-like structure in there. So, I went to my doctor back in Fiji where I got to know from the tests that I have a stomach tumour. Doctors said that it is a large tumour, of about 13cms. It was then that my doctor suggested Vaidam Health to me, said they could help me get the right treatment. So, I decided to come to India as soon as possible.
Where did you have your treatment in India?
Did your treatment go well at the hospital?
Yes, the treatment went well. Further CT Scan was done when I came here. Dr. Gupta said that a surgical removal of the tumour would be of high risk because of its location. So I had to undergo three sessions of chemotherapy in the hospital while Dr. Gupta suggested that I should undergo three more sessions of chemotherapy back in Fiji.
How was Vaidam Health’s assistance to you in India?
Throughout the three months medical trip Vaidam Health had been really helpful. They were there during the chemotherapy sessions and had also done regular follow-ups. They even arranged a nice rented apartment for me and my wife.
Vaidam also helped me to get my medical clearance form approved within two days because of which I didn’t have to change my flight or wait. It is an amazing job that they have done because it takes around five to seven days to get the clearance and I didn’t have much time. Waiting for it would have led to a change in my flight for which I had to incur about 2000 USD extra. Thanks to Pankaj for helping me so much. I am really happy with Vaidam’s assistance.
