Please find below a small thank you note for the timely treatment of mu father in his battle against Cancer.
He first felt swallowing problems in his throat / mouth in November 2012, in Kolkata when he went to an ENT specialist there for consultation. The Doctor after examining him said that this was likely to be a case of Fungal infection of the mouth and prescribed him ‘Fluconazole’ for medication. This continued for a couple of months and he went to another Doctor in Pune for followup consultation towards the end of January, 2013. This Doctor said that this can be Fungal infection or malignancy. If medicine for fungal infection was curing the problems then it was fine else might have to check for malignancy and prescribed ‘Ciprofloxacin’. The medicine seemed to provide some relief. However, suddenly at March 2013 one morning he started speaking in a Nasal tone. We initially thought it was due to cold which he had that time but the tone persisted for a few days.
We then took him to a local Hospital in Bangalore and consulted the ENT and also consulted the visiting oncologist there. The CT Scan also did not reflect any problems (we later realized that the doctor prescribed CT Scan of the wrong area). This led us to look for an alternate specialist Doctor who can help us out and we reached out to Dr. Kumaresh Krishnamoorthy who is one of the best specialists inBangalore. Dr. Kumaresh helped us to go through an immediate Biopsy and confirmed that this was Carcinoma of the Soft Palate. Subsequently he along with an extremely senior and capable colleagues in Medical and Radiation Oncology treated him .
Their treatment resulted in his recovery and he appears to be in a much improved state than when we went to Dr. Kumaresh for the first time. I would like to sincerely extend my Thanks and Regards to Dr. Kumaresh and the panel of Doctors who treated him and for whom I am able to get my father back from the clutches of this dreaded disease.
It is my pleasure to write this small note about you and the way you practice.
