I was diagnosed with plantar fibromatosis in the left foot in 2011. I had a surgery done at a local hospital near my home. I was assured that this disease would not recur, but to our shock, it recurred next year. I had then consulted with some doctors with some reputed hospitals, who told me that I had to get some of my toes removed. At that time, I did not have the courage to take up the surgery, and tried some alternative medicines, but they were all in vain. The tumour kept growing.
Finally, I came across Dr. Ayappan from MCCF. It was just a matter of luck that I met him at Kumaran Hospitals. He explained me , the nature of the disease and what had to be done to get rid of it. Initially we were devastated and very scared about if I could lead an active life after the surgery, but thanks to the doctor, he convinced us that if I delayed the surgery, it would be a big risk as the tumour could turn malignant.
Finally with the support and guidance given by the doctor and my family, I took up the treatment and surgery. Initially , it took some time for me to get adapted to my new life, but I was able to cope up very fast and in a matter of 3 months I was back to my office , though on crutches. In 5 months of time I was able to walk on my own without any crutches or help from anybody.
It is 5 years now , since the surgery. I now visit him yearly for my check up. I have to fully agree that Dr. Ayappan had taken the best decision for me at that time.
I have been to Germany thrice for my work. I even stayed there alone for ~1.5 years, which I never thought was possible because of the disease. Thanks to the doctor, he not only helped me through my surgery, but also helped me through the rehabilitation process, as a result of which I was able to return back to an active life as earlier than what I had during the disease.
