Mr. Faheem Safar from Oman had successful blood cancer treatment via Indian Medguru Consultants at Global Hospital Bangalore. Read on to know his story:
Hello, my name is Mr Faheem Safar and I traveled from Oman to India for blood cancer treatment at Global Hospital Bangalore. Cancer first hit home for me when one of my friend was diagnosed with cancer and lost his battle eventually after a short period of time. Due to him, I finally decided to check a lump on my neck which has been bothering me for a while. My biopsy revealed that I had lymphoma but luckily it was in a very early stage. My friend suggested me about Indian Medguru Consultants who had assisted him planning his medical trip to India. I contacted Indian Medguru Consultants asking about blood cancer treatment at Global Hospital Bangalore, India. They send us more details about the blood cancer treatment cost and doctor’s opinion after they studied the medical reports that was being asked to sent. Soon we solidified our decision to go ahead and my wife and son accompanied me to India.
We received a warm welcome by an official of Indian Medguru Consultants at the international airport in Bangalore. He escorted us to the hotel and few hours later we went to Global Hospital Bangalore. We met the doctor who was soft spoken and explained us about the entire procedure for the blood cancer treatment. It helped to put my mind at ease a bit. Soon into my treatment, I started losing my hair and beard that I had sported for long. I didn’t let it bother me. My whole treatment went really well with everything going to plan and my body seemed to react well to the treatment.
Before being diagnosed, I have had never been admitted to the hospital and so it gave me a but of a fright. However, this was an eye-opener for me as I was impacted by what others were going through. Early into my treatment, I learnt to continue being proactive with my health which meant keeping a close eye on tests and results and not being afraid to ask questions. It is up to you how you manage your treatment, but I felt that when I was organized my mind was more at rest. Though you don’t know where anything leads however I do like to feel like I know where I am going.
Slowly I am getting my strength back and learning to deal with fatigue. We have been keeping ourselves busy and also tried minimizing stress wherever possible. Practical things have helped me through this treatment. What I have learnt during this tough phase is the importance of family and friends when things are getting rough. You know that being able to talk to anyone about what you are going through is actually a huge support. I am extremely grateful to the team of Indian Medguru Consultants for talking about the blood cancer treatment and explaining about it as it helped me realise this isn’t something that I should be stressed about.
My chemo treatments were rough but I try remembering that this is the feeling which I have to deal with to get better. I know that my doctors have my best interests in minds. By the end of the year I had finished treatment and was happy to start a new year in better health. I am now continuing to take a no stress approach to whatever life throws me at. We are just enjoying things as they come and though there are a lot of things happening in life, I just have to take one day at a time.
The doctor and his team have been incredible- so kind, caring and explain everything very well. I am grateful to the love and support of my family and friends who have been with me throughout this journey. I am thankful to Indian Medguru Consultants for their constant care and support throughout my medical trip for blood cancer treatment at Global Hospital Bangalore, India.
