WHEN YOUR HELP GOES OUT OF ACTION..... The joy of becoming Director, Breast Surgical Oncology, dissipated into thin air when my help did not turn up for work citing an excruciating back ache. And then all hell broke loose, at least for me, as I realised that a whole new vista of mountains of work had piled up in front of me. My mother in law who is past 75 did her best to restore order but at that age, speed is not on your side. The morning hours between 6 and 7.30 am is nothing short of high speed roller coaster with three people with contrasting needs, rushing off to their respective places of work. One of these people is also me but I was the only one riding the roller coaster. Now I know why the goddesses have multiple arms, symbolic of the multitasking geniuses women are. I had exactly an hour and a half in which to don the cape of Superwoman! I would have to conjure up six dishes. Each of us would eat a different thing and carry yet another thing for lunch. Spoilt brats, each one of us 😯but blame it on the ever complying help. If this variety in dishes was not enough, my obsessive mind with a fetish for cleanliness would go about setting the house right, ironing out the last crease on the bed and cleaning the bathroom, till the tiles gleamed and the arms hurt. 😱My husband and daughter would look on trying to tell me that my obsession was not their problem-meaning, they would not help!🤨 Out of breath and sweating, I would now get ready for that job, I am trained for and love doing.I would arrive in hospital, without a trace of the battle that I was embroiled in not too long ago. Nobody wants to know that you have just completed a day’s work before coming to the hospital. I am not looking for compassion but this is my tribute to all the women who strive endlessly to make the lives of their loved ones better and then go to work and excel there as well. Breathe ladies and take good care of yourselves!While I love being a woman, I really hope my help comes back soon!
Today, the first Delhi Breast Oncology Group (DBOG) CME was held in Max Patparganj, Delhi. There is a palpable enthusiasm in the creation of this group which will be one of the subspecialty arms of the Oncology Forum. The meeting started with myself introducing the proposed functional unit of DBOG. The proposal was to have coordinators for various tasks assisted by committees.There will be stock taking at each CME to be held on the first saturday, every two months. The Secretary will coordinate the pre-CME meetings at each of the CMEs. The CME itself was an academic feast with 3 case discussions and review of literature relevant to each topic. Dr Vineeta Goel, Radiation Oncologist at Max Cancer Centre, Patparganj, presented the relevance of radiation in 1-3 positive axillary nodes. Dr Randeep Singh, Medical Oncologist at Max Cancer Centre, Patparganj, presented a case of metastatic triple positive breast cancer and the current treatment options and Dr Rohan Khandelwal, Breast Surgeon at Max Cancer Centre, Saket presented a case of Triple negative breast cancer and brought in Dr Amit Verma, Genetic consultant, to unravel the rogue pathways involved in Triple negative breast cancer. The meeting ended with Dr Vaishali Zamre, Senior Consultant, Surgical Oncology, Action Balaji Hospital, Delhi, accepting the responsibility of holding the next meeting at Action Balaji Hospital. The presence of 80 attendees at this CME was a reaffirmation of the fact that like minded people need to work together to achieve larger goals.A beginning has been made.....and there is a lot to do to make big strides in the right direction. I thank all the participants for being part of this endeavor and hope to see you all on 7th March, 2015 at Action Balaji. For further details, please contact Dr Geeta Kadayaprath, Head, Breast Surgical Oncology, Max Cancer Centre, Patparganj Delhi
The alarms go off when one sees breast cancer happening in young women. We analysed our data at Max Patparganj and found that 12.9% of 511 patients operated in the last 3 years were under 40 years of age..Unfortunate, but the good news is only 5% have succumbed to the disease so far! Breast Cancer in the Young- the theme of the 18th Delhi Breast Oncology Group Meeting!!
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
