Help Saswata Basu To Fight Crohn's Disease

Hi! Thanks for checking out my campaign page. I am helping best friend and life mate, Saswata Basu, who has been recently diagnosed with a severe chronic ailment called Crohn's Disease, to raise funds for his treatment. Saswata popularly known as BASU is an alumnus of NIT Trichy (a reputed engineering school in India) who left a lucrative engineering career in IT and dedicated his life to endeavour with the kids to make their learning effortless, meaningful and fun filled. He is a teacher and an education technologist who is currently engaged in developing new pedagogical methods in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) education complying with 21st Century education for school kids.

Crohn's Disease is a debilitating, chronic inflammatory bowel disease that affects the digestive tract causing a number of symptoms such as abdominal pain, ulcers, blood diarrhoea, weight loss, anemia and fatigue, etc. Patients with overt disease are at a significantly higher risk for GI tract cancers, necessitating regular screening for diagnosis. The disease has no cure, immunosuppressant are used to slow the progression of the disease. Surgery may be needed if medications are not effective. For a patient with Crohn's disease, life is extremely regimented, requiring constant vigil and surveillance.
As of now his restricted movement is preventing him for taking a regular job and I too, have to remain unengaged to ensure his day to day care including managing his special diet and timely medicines. He is very passionate about his work and dying to get back among his kids. Kindly contribute to help the ever smiling Basu and let's stand up for him who always selflessly worked for the betterment of the education system for the next generation learners.

The Crohn's diagnosis and the subsequent treatment are putting a lot of stress on his health and strain on the finances to the point that they have their exhausted their savings. Please help with whatever amount possible to enable Saswata to continue his treatment and get back to as normal a life as possible.

Your worries are gone when your Doctor is there to take them away !!

Today's update is not about Basu much but more about the people who have become inevitable part of his survival.At a chaotic time of inefficiency,distrust,lack of empathy leading to undesirable public outburst against medical fraternity happening everyday , this post is an initiative to establish lost hope and a humble tribute to those Doctors who are doing their JOBS without much ado.

Since we came to Kolkata, we had been fortunate enough to meet the right people getting the appropriate suggestions.It was Dr Shatabdi Bhattacharya who saw Basu first.She immediately identified severity of his condition and without losing any time at once referred him to Midland Hospital under able guidance of Dr Partha Pratim Ghosh( popularly known as PP Ghosh).

After getting admitted, Basu's condition rapidly started deteriorating and became extremely critical.Dr Ghosh had already pulled in Dr Sanjay Banerjee(GI specialist) on the second day itself as Basu had multiple abdominal complications, each one of them pretty serious.Then started the roller coaster ride of various tests followed by validation and further validation.

As a common person nothing more than a patient party (family members are generally referred to ), I needed absolute clarity around Basu's condition and definite action plan way forward.Dr Ghosh made me aware of each and everything cearly that was happening to Basu, enouraging and respecting my urge of knowing things in detail, handling my innumerable queries with utmost patience( gone are the days of sugar coated daddy doctors,"don't worry everything's fine..." or the terrorist ones, " Ohh you have brought him almost dead.who was your last doctor ?...."blah blah blah..).

Alhough those were the times, when I was being showered with n number of suggestions/advices from our friends and families ( All had noble intentions I know...Guys I love you all from the core of my heart  😘😘), it was extremely important for me to be strong and firm at my sole decision of staying rock steady beside my doctor who I could see was doing the right most thing required at those hours.

The saga continued as Basu got identified with Crohn's Disease (incurable inflammatory bowel disease),Hepatosplenomegaly ( excessive enlargement of Lever and Spleen) with infections in lymphnodes.Dr Sanjay Banerjee took over Dr Ghosh and had been able to make Basu reach the Remission phase soon.His latest CT Enteroclysis report suggests, though Crohn's has already taken a toll on his health big time yet he is improving due to appropriate medication and proper diet regime.Dr Banerjee had been quite confident about Basu's treatment.

He had made the dos and don'ts very clear on the day one and yesterday he looked like that topper who was quite sure about his result :) Yes, I felt like a topper too as I watched both of them cracking jokes and sharing laughter.. sitting in that spotless small chamber,I could feel the vibrance of life all around myself...

The journey is quite long...but it's still going to be full of life.....
with love
