This is Dr. Suganthi and I am from a small town near madurai which is Usilampatti. I am a gynecologist by profession and I have been doing service over 40 years for the poor and needy…By this November 2022 I had a myocardial infarction and Was shifted to Madurai and Meenakshi Mission Hospital and the doctors over there saved my life by doing emergency angioplasty…following that I was placed on antiplatelets and was back to normalcy….I had my menopause as I am is 70years of age….. And exactly 45 days from my angioplasty I had a postmenopausal bleeding….As a gynecologist I was worried because I knew something was wrong…. Immediately I had to evaluate myself with ultrasound abdomen, MRI abdomen and endometrial biopsy….the endometrial biopsy came as endometrial hyperplasia with early atypia meaning I was having Endometrial carcinoma….I informed my son who is a pediatric surgeon in Chennai and to my brother in law son who is a Cardiothoracic surgeon…..they advised me to come to chennai at the earliest. Came to chennai on Dec 28th and had a discussion with them whom to meet and so….the answer everyone gave was Dr.Ayyapan surgical oncologist without any second thoughts..
Without further queries got an appointment with Dr.Ayyapan surgical oncologist head in Apollo speciality hospital….it wasn’t much like a consultation with him but more of an interview where he patiently asked the history went on with examining me and going through the reports patiently….then he gave me the treatment options of going through the surgery which was removal of the uterus and ovaries…I was only in the thought that being a carcinoma I would need a open surgery but Dr.Ayyapan told that he would consider doing a laparoscopic surgery considering my age and postoperative outcome….he also discussed about the cons of an open surgery……It was a treat to watch him explain regarding the nature of the disease and course of the treatment as me being a doctor of old school….He took good care of me and said from today I am his baby and he would take great care….I was simply amazed and he was such an amazing personality and I haven’t come across one….on the go Dr.Ayyapan did not proceed to surgery….he wanted to make me fit for the procedure…so he had given me orders where I had to follow
1.Breathing exercise for my lungs to be strong for two weeks
2.Cardiologist opinion as I had undergone a stenting for my heart
3.Anaesthetsist fitness prior to surgery
I met Dr.kirubakaran who was the cardiologist for the fitness before surgery.He calmly explained the drugs I need to take and to stop before surgery and he would discuss with Dr.Ayyapan the management before surgery.
Next I met Dr.Babuji my anaesthetist….he too was not fazed about the condition I was in and advised the orders I needed to follow up prior to the surgery
Surgery was fixed on 11th of February….But Dr.Ayyapan made sure I’m not going into the operating room unless I was able to do my lung exercise (using a spirometer)with ease. He personally made me do in front of him and only when he was convinced he advised to go ahead with the surgery…
Then the D day came and was admitted in Apollo speciality Nandanam….Good care was given and the pre op orders were well carried out…Dr.Ayyapan told me and my family members before wheeling me into the operating room that he is only gonna proceed with Laparascopic hysterectomy and bilateral salpingooopherectomy(Removal of uterus and ovaries)as planned and nothing is going to change which he has promised earlier. It shows how confident he was and with much interest in patients health.
I was wheeled into the OT and the surgery was done laparoscopically and was kept in surgical postoperative ward and once I was fit to shift I was taken to the ward.
In the ward I was taken great care by the staffs, Head nurse, physiotherapist, dietician whoever u name it their tender care, attention and love I will never forget in my life. I thank each and everyone again for taking good care of me thanks.
In my native I have conducted thousands of complicated deliveries and the patients would see god through me and say I’m their god but at this point of time I see Dr.Ayyapan as my God and his magnanimous form where no words are there to praise him…I thank him wholeheartedly amidst of so many complications he has saved my life without getting a pie from the time of consultation till I was discharged from the hospital…I thank him and his team for taking good care of me.
Last but not the least I am grateful to chose Apollo hospital for the treatment where best doctors are there saving many lives….it was like one family
Thanks and best wishes for your treatment and care to millions of souls
