When I noticed one painless swelling over my right upper gum for one week being suspicious of malignant tumour, I had consultation with Dr Vikram, M.S., M.Ch. HOD Head and Neck Oncology and Reconstructive Surgery at Mazumdar Shaw Cancer Center NH Health City Bangalore on April 27, 2015. Biopsy of the swelling was taken same day for histopathological study. On May 2, 2015 when I visited Mazumdar Shaw Cancer Center, I came to know that I am suffering from Cancer of right upper gum. I got operated for removal of malignant tumour with reconstructive surgery on May 13, 2015. I was hospitalized up to May 20, 2015 and being discharged from hospital same day evening I am in post-operative convalescence at our Bangalore home with periodical check-up at OPD of Mazumdar Shaw Cancer Center Bangalore.
On May 21, 2015 through Social Networking in Facebook, I posted about my swelling of right upper gum diagnosed as cancer and surgery to that effect for information to all my Facebook friends, relatives and family members at large with the message that “Cancer is so limited…it cannot kill the spirit of life”. I got quite a good number of likes and comments for the way I am fighting against cancer with much mental and emotional strength. Since that day, I am regularly posting my posts in Facebook on morning quotes, health magazine, photos of my remarkable events etc. on day to day basis.
I am practicing pranayama yoga as physiotherapy for my recovery in convalescence period at Bangalore home as advised by treating surgeon. I am listening spiritual bhajans in Hindi of Shirdi Sai Baba recorded in my P.C., Hanuman Chalisa and reading Shri Sai Teeka in Odia from time to time daily in morning, noon, evening and night. Sometimes, I pick up of one or two of my old articles published in my blog website Yoga and Spirituality for reading and for better understanding of the post and responses posted by different comment authors on the article.
I am now back to the fold of Yoga and Spirituality with the message that “Cancer is so limited…it cannot kill the spirit of life”.
