Help Nancy Fight Pituitary Macroadenoma

We are in deep need of help financially. My sister, Suhashini Nancy Chetia has been diagnosed with Pituitary macroadenoma. We had gone to consult a doctor in Apollo hospital, banerghatta Bengaluru regarding her viral fever but the doctor instead diagnosed her to be a patient of Acromegaly. The doctor who initially figured it out was an internal medicine doctor and henceforth he referred to us an endocrinologist in the same hospital. The endocrinologist Dr. Narendra B.S was pretty shocked to see her because the symptoms ( swelling of the soft tissues, spacing between the teeth, broadening of the face, severe headaches) were very evident. Following which she has done a few tests which revealed that her growth hormone secretion was very high (683 instead of 329). After an MRI it is confirmed that she is suffering from Pituitary macroadenoma.
Since the surgery is a critical one and we need to get it operated from an experienced neurologist at a recognized hospital, we are expecting of getting it done from NIMHANS or from Apollo hospital, Bengaluru or Delhi. The cost estimate inclusive of the hospital charges would be around 5 lakhs. We are in deep need of funds, and any sort of help would be highly appreciated.

Hello everyone. As you all know my sister, Suhashini Nancy Chetia is an Acromegaly patient. She was diagnosed with Pituitary macroadenoma following which she was scheduled for a surgery on 24th August 2017 at NIMHANS, Bengaluru.

Nancy was admitted in the hospital on 23rd August 2017 i.e on Wednesday. The surgery started at 3:00 pm and continued till 9:00pm. It was supposed to get over in 2-3 hours but due to some medical complications and severe blood loss the time was extended.

The surgical team was a team of 3 neurosurgeons, lead by senior neurologist Dr. S Sampath. The team was successful in removing the entire tumor. Post surgery, Nancy was complaining about visual disturbance in the right eye which is why the surgery was followed by a CT scan. Her reports were normal and the team expected it to be because of edema during the surgery. A graft had been taken from her right thigh to block the flow of cerebrospinal fluid in the nasal septum.

She is having a little difficulty in breathing because of the post operation pads inside her nose. However, she is fighting hard and doing her best. She is eating well and is kept in the recovery ward because her sodium and glucose levels need to be monitored by the doctors regularly. Once they come to normal, she will be shifted to her personal cabin. I would like to thank all for your blessings, love and support. Also,special mention to all those people who have helped us so much financially. She fought like a brave heart and is still doing so. I am sorry to be unable to keep you posted personally. Without all your blessings and support we would have never been this successful. I would also like to thank Jayashree, the Manager for my campaign in Milaap, for taking all the pain to guide me through the procedures.  Keep praying for her speedy recovery. Sending you all the love and gratefullness from Nancy, and my family.
