My fight against the dreadful disease - CANCER


Hi all,

Like most Chennai girls, I too had my entry into a Software Company right after my graduation. When I reached 23, I met my better half and tied the wedlock soon.




 We had a cute little girl child the very next year. I changed my job and joined back after 7 months of maternity. Life was cool and fine with small hurdles that could be crossed with patience.




We are a vegetarian family and we have the habit of including fruits in our diet every week. I live with my in laws and having an active lifestyle with busy household chores, office and some workout routines. I eat all vegetables including plantain stem and bitter guard. I find so many adults pushing veggies aside on their plate.

It was around 4.5 years post marriage - during August 2014, I noticed a small lump on the right side of my neck. It was of the size of half of a marble. I couldnt figure out why it appeared all of a sudden. I youtubed and googled :) and finally found that its called 'Lymph node Enlargement' and I was clear that it wasnt Thyroid. It was hardly a week after the swelling when I got severe fever which ran upto 102 in the evening and fatigue. I'm generally very active in the evening when I prepare the vegetables for the next day and spend time with the kid - but I was falling on the bed as soon as I returned. I had a sore throat as well. I decided to check it with an ENT specialist who in turn gave me medicines saying that 'Lymph node' coud enlarge if we get infections. He's right actually and so I took the medicines for 3 days when nothing subsided. I went to my gynaecologist who has known my health condition thru out my pregnancy. As soon as I blurted out the word, 'Lymph node enlargement' - she immediately asked me to take it serious and perform a series of tests.
Note1: Your general physician would be able to guide you best since he/she knows your health condition better than anyone else
 Note2: Please identify any small changes in your body and if its a non -painful lump anywhere, please show it to your doc immediately. It might also be non-harmful but ensure you get it clarified.
Note3: Never hesitate to take tests like blood test/scans. I'm aware that it requires a lot of money out of our hands. But in this world with adulterated food everywhere, the number of diseases are huge and most diseases do not show up with just physical examination.
It was a neck scan which showed multiple nodules inside apart from the one I could visibly see. My doc suggested FNAC which requires taking a sample using a needle from the nodule. The scan specialist was apprehensive and suggested a chest scan as well after discussing with us. He wanted that to confirm on something. We were not clear on what his suspicion was about. But still, we conceded since our doctor was informed well in hand before performing the scan. We were finally informed that I was suffering from Hodgkin's Lymphoma/Lymph node cancer. Tears rolled down my husband's eyes as he read the report online. My mother, in laws including my sister in law - were in tears. I could sense the tension but I suggested to discuss everything with doctor first. My doctor had got the news well ahead and she suggested a full biopsy to make a double confirmation. The histopathology report takes 3 days to come which confirms the stage of cancer and the type of cells which are active. This would help in identifying the treament mode as well. I was at Stage 2, Hodgkin's Lymphoma. My doc was cool in guiding us to an Oncologist at Apollo, Teynampet.
Dr. MA Raja is the oncologist I met at Apollo. He gave us a counselling session of an hour or so before talking about the treatment. We had a hundred questions to ask of course. :) Is it completely curable? How long would the treatment go? Will I lose my hair completely? What are the side effects? and many more... He was patient enough to answer every question that we had. The treatment for CANCER can be by the following methods: 1: Chemotherapy 2: Radiation 3: Surgery + chemo 4: Chemo + radiation 5: worst case - it could be Stem cell transplant. The PET scan (injecting radioactive element into your body to identify the areas where the cANCER cells have spread) - suggested that I had it in my neck and CHEST and hence Stage 2.
 Since I was in stage 2 and young, my treatment included Chemotherapy alone.
Radiation, though has lesser side effects (you wont lose hair :) importantly) - is suggested for patients who are about 435-40 years since it might cause some other cancer in the future.
This is my first day of Chemotherapy - which included a 5 hour session of injecting drugs into my veins. ABVD were the medicines offered to me.  

I told myself that the road ahead is going to be too rough. I took an LOP from work after 2 rounds of chemotherapy since I was too tired to work 
 I can quote some side effects of chemotherapy for you to know.
1: Mouth ulcers which make you lose your taste buds - you cannot eat what you like even if you are double hungry due to steroids
2: Severe Pain in the veins - if the medicine is viscous (one of my medicines was too thick) 
3: Water retention in the whole body which made my face rounded :) I started looking like a chipmunk :) 





4: Hairfall- I started losing my hair after 2 rounds of chemo - and I had to do a short haircut to prevent hair knots. Then I started becoming bald when I decided to go for a full tonsure. 
5: Buffalo hump - your neck becomes layered due to steroids - which make fat getting deposited in chest, back of neck
6: Weight gain - due to steroids
7: Nausea - which might in turn cause weight loss for some.
8: Nails and fingers getting discoloured - due to depletion of cells
9: Stomach burning - since the chemotherapy destoys all the cells in the lining of stomach
10: RBCs, WBCs go out of range and hence you are prone to a hell lot of infections. The injection 'NEOPOGEN (Cost: 12K) is given after chemo to trigger the bone marrow to produce more WBC - which inturn causes severe joint pain - I felt like I lost my hip and couldnt sit at times. 
11: Mood swings - widely due to treatment and also due to depression.  
The trauma of losing hair is just inexplicable. especially for girls, where hair literally means IDENTITY. Its a total change over of how you look.. I had to search for scarves - India doesnt have many varieties. Far east countries have a hell lot of varieties.
 
I started ignoring the mirror and cried sometimes to step out of the house. But still I had to engage myself into something. I started quilling, I learnt car driving and got my licence; I joined Aerobics. I spent more time with the kid though I couldnt help much since I would roll out in pain at times when my hubby and kid would console me to sleep.
My in laws and mom took good care of me but I started feeling too dependent on them. My dear hubby also did a tonsure to make me feel equal to him! There are guys who abandon their spouses as soon as they get to know that she is suffering from a dreadful disease. God, I cant ask for more!!
 
Note: You tend to realize the importance of your kith and kin only when you get a disease/ when you are unable to stay independent. You also tend to realize/find who your real friends are!!!
 
My scans after 6 rounds of ABVD(chemo) were normal and they told me that no more cancer cells were active. My doc suggested for 2 more rounds to wash out traces. Finally on December 6th 2014 - I took my last chemotherapy. I made quilling earrings and a 'Thank You' card to the 8 nurses who served me during my treatment.
 
 
I've been on remission since then. Its been 2 months now since my last treatment. My latest pic post treatment - lost some of the effects of steroids and my hair has started growing :)
My daily routine is: 1: I go for a morning walk for 40 min at 6 KMph.
2: I come home and prepare tiffin for the morning
3: Pack lunch for me and hubby and have breakfast
4: Washing machine
5: Give food for in laws and make kid ready
6: Clear and clean the kitchen - with utensils kept in place
7: Feed food for kid and start to office
8: I go to work in a train and a share auto - this ensures I get more exercise.
9: Reach home, have dinner and cut veggies for the next day lunch 
10: Clear the clothes and spend time with kid
11: Read a book and sleep.
 









Though I still have pains at times, I feel I can come back to my own self soon. It would take around 2 years may be for my hair to grow back as before. My steriods are slowly leaving me but its too slow and my patience levels are constantly tested. I can bear the look of strangers who give a weird look at me - but I'm hurt by the way some ppl who know me best, treat me post this. Guys, there's a lot of difference between patronizing and showing real concern . I've already lost hope in myself. If you still try to press me down, I'm ready to take it.. Keep it coming!! I'll come out with flying colours soon..
I met many ppl who shared their experiences about their kith and kin who had got this disease – I realized, life is not easy for anyone. Every person has a suffering that he/she has crossed or working upon. Name, fame, money – everything has lesser importance, the only thing which matters is the love you show on every person and the love you get from the ppl around you.

Never lose confidence in life. Even the deadliest disease has a cure if you have the confidence to face it!! Never waste your tears for petty things for it has the least value. The ppl who love you most will never ever leave you in whatever situation you are:) never lose those kind of people!!!

My latest gyan was that: Stress is an important factor for Cancer. So just dont get stressed :) if something is gonna hurt your heart, just come out of the place.. you have better things to do and better people who care!!
 
Keep moving on!! Life is too short to get stressed and get cancer :)  
 
Guys - any inputs regarding CANCER and its treatment, its side effects, scarves, motivation etc I'm ready to discuss. Get in touch if you need. Thanks.

Such a brave, beautiful post. It's one of the most inspiring things I came across in a long time. I hope you make a full recovery soon. I realise how traumatic it is to live and deal with it, more so, to share it with the world. May god bless you and your entire family.. Looking forward to more posts :)
Hi Vaidehi,

It takes great courage to fight the way you have done.
It takes even more courage to boldly share and create awareness among others.
The tone of the blog I am stunned to say in fact is awareness and courage and not sympathy or sorrow.

We all waited for this day when you would announce to the world that you kicked cancer's butt.
BRAVO !

But I am sure you got all this strength for this fight from the immense LOVE you have for your kid and husband and not the least your lovely parents and in-laws.
Take care of them !
I say YOU take care of THEM !

LOVESTRONG AND LIVESTRONG
FOREVER !

Regards and Hats Off !

You are a champion Vaidehi. I salute your approach towards this monster disease and proved that its not a monster if you have a will and belief. Your family should be lucky to have you as a part of them. God Bless you and your lovely family.
Our Best wishes to you. I know exactly how you felt. I had to go through a rough time due to my illness. 18 tablets a day and all at the same time. Just one go:(

First the medicines were not suitable for me I had a hell of time. By trial and error they found the correct ones and I started taking them by one go:(

Because of this my treatment time was extended nearly one year.

My husband is really very supportive and my close friend ( Medical Dr. ) helped me a lot. As we are living in NZ, there was no help from immediate family though.

when My husband asked me what I really want, I said I would like to go to Kashi (Varanasi. my last wish!)

By the Grace of GOD, now I am alive.

Be brave my dear. God bless.
Shah Ber said…
Salute to your courage. You matter to your kid and husband, great inlaws. My SIL had bonemarrow and came fighting back just becuase of her courage, she says its all because of our prayers. Whatever stay positive,long way to go.

Hi Vaidehi

No words to describe your courage in facing this situation. When you have some time, please read the effectiveness of Ketogenic diet in fighting off cancer. The logic goes like this. cancer cells feed on glucose. If we cut off glucose supply to them, cancer cells die off. What do we eat if not glucose? Fat.

This diet is called ketogenic diet and is studied and researched as a potential way to mitigate the effects of cancer. Some links might help explain this more

http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2013/06/16/ketogenic-diet-benefits.aspx

Ketogenic diet beats chemotherapy in treating cancer

Some scientific studies

I run a health based group in facebook. We follow a high fat- low carb diet model specified in these studies. I think it can help you. Our group website is as follows

I invite you to join it. I wish you good health and speedy recovery

So proud of a man like your husband who gives equal importance to you. All the very best for a successful career and a great loving life. Long live healthy and happily :-)

I remember how she faced this disease with courage & dignity and I pray that you will continue to be so courageous and graceful and dignified in your journey. May God Bless You & your family!

My mother's lost the battle after 2 years. The fact is people are insecure in their lives and try to bring you down to find satisfaction. They are jealous of your smallest achievements. The sooner we learn to move on from these people the better. Wishing you good health and God's abundant blessings!

Hi all,

First of all, thanks to each and everyone of you who took your time to read and comment on this page. For the ppl who asked me about the cost of treatment, it was around 3.5 lakhs. Most was covered by health insurance.
Guys, even wigs are covered under insurance for Cancer :) that's sweet right? I never went for a wig myself since I felt it would not be me...



For the ppl who are fighting along with me.. Keep rocking and thumbs up :)

We have facebook groups for every type of cancer :) and millions of users are available to guide you along :) Its a closed group and hence your friends would not be able to see the things you post here :)



Scarves - get it from US :) My bro got some for me :) you have lovely varieties.



To feel more motivated, get some T shirts with slogans saying, 'I kicked CANCER's butt' etc..or may be bracelets / pins



If you wish to speak more to me, please message me through Facebook. My profile name is VaidehiVC
God Bless You my child! Be brave! You will be alright! My mother died of cancer! She lost the battle after 4 years of continuous treatment. But you will win! Our prayers are for you.
ரொம்பப் பெருமையாக இருக்கிறது வைதேகி உங்கள் வெற்றியைக் கண்டு !! இந்தப் பதிவின் மூலம் "உடல் சம்மந்தமான எந்த அசாதாரண நிகழ்வையும் அலட்சியப்படுத்த வேண்டாம் " என்ற முக்கியமான ஒரு செய்தியையும் சொல்லி இருக்கிறீர்கள். வாழ்க பல்லாண்டு, உங்களுக்கும், உறுதுணையாய் இருந்த அத்தனை உண்மை நெஞ்சங்களுக்கும் வாழ்த்துக்கள்.

Hi Vaidehi,

It's good you got finished your chemo in 4 months, for me it took 8 months continuous chemo's. initially on every day for 45 days next 7 days and 10 days again 7 days followed by 10 days till 8 months. Now I am on maintenance and completed 1 year. Still 2 more years to go. I had problems everything that you faced and still more coming to me daily. I am back to work and on active duties. I am lucky that I have no regrets in my life till day i was diagnosed with ALL. But i still need hide my identity, because people can't understand even they say "I CAN UNDERSTAND" and treat you different.It spend about 8 months in a room laying on bed for almost 24 hours and counting on stars(even you can't see) and now I can't even remember what had happened. God thank you for "LOSS of MEMORY".But only sad thing is it not only test the patience of yours but your entire family,which i always think How can I repay. I am still here, may be because I still worth for something. May not be for me but may be for others.I am searching for the moment,what should I do with re birth in my life.

Take Care.

Regards,
Bhaskar.

Do you know something? You and I work in the same account. I knew you were familiar and I dint see you for a long time. After so many days I think I saw you in the bay and I was thinking you look different.

So this is your story. You are such a brave girl. Hats off!. I pray to God that yo continue to be brave come what may.

I just have a question? I am sure you will be able to answer. How much did the whole treatment cost?
Mohan said…
Your story is very touching and thanks for sharing. You are blessed to have such a caring family.

You are right in saying that there are so many causes and an important one being food. This has to be addressed promptly. Eating healthy and pushing for Organic farming will help many people in future from getting this dreadful illness.
Priya said…
I just want to appreciate what your husband did.

Dearest Vaidehi...

With your positive attitude you will scale various heights...as they say in tamil "Iduvum kadanthu pogum"... you still have promises to keep as Robert Frost... says.. "You have promises to keep" to you kids....

Wish you all the very best in all your endeavors.

With lots of blessing and love

Hey Vaidehi

I feel sorry for you to undergo such a painful period in your life. You are one such brave person. You dint know me but we went through the studies in same collage and even worked at same office. I have one small suggestion to you as a friend or sister, never cut your vegetables a day before. I heard from doctor that the vegetables lose their vitamins and other imp nutrients and finally you end up eating only the veggies with less nutrients.

It was a great post and very motivational. God Bless you. It was a very perfect read for me as I am also suffering from extreme depression and anxiety related illness. Thanks and have a great future
Very motivating post vaidehi. Very simple words but very powerful thoughts. Cheers to your positivity! Good luck!
Hat's off to you :-) its a inspirational post. ..god bless. ..
Hats off !! Very inspiring and got tears when I was at the end of the blog. God bless and best wishes to you. :)
Dear vaidehi, After reading your blog .. I only can imagine how much you and your family would have gone through ... But hats off to you and your family members ... When I started to read the first few lines .. All I could I think off was you asking this question to God why me ? Since you started with saying you are vegetarian and how you take fruit everyday and that you are an active person .. The moment I felt what would I do when I ask a question to God why me ? All I felt was he certai chose you for doing his work .. Nobody can get up from the pit of darkness like you did and no one can guide and give hope to others like you are doing right now .. You are chosen to be the shining star to guide the people in darkness ... Your not walking the path .. It's you who is LEADING the path which God has chosen .. When you believe you had nothing to do with how you got Cancer .. Do believe that he who chose you to have it .. is also responsible to treat it too .. He knows how much strength he has seeded in you that you have yet to explore since he is your creator ... And how much hope and faith he can bring back in all of us through his Angels on earth .. Trust me me Sis .. You are one of his Angels .. And you have given us hope ... Thanks to you and your family members .. Hats off .. you didn't give up and neither will he ... God bless you all
Dear Vaidehi,
More than the physical and mental agony it requires a lot of courage and commitment to publish your experiences in a public domain to be useful to others..On this account i give you full marks.Having come over a major hurdle it is time for you to take suitable precaution to prevent the recurrence.Sit with your oncologist and seek his advice.We are all proud of you to be a member of our family.Now i can meet you without causing any embarrassment to you which i will do soon.God bless you.

You can get a wide range of scarves in Hyderabad if you can travel there. There is a shop called sona, I get my scarves from there.
you can even find very good scarves in lucknow, but it should be far for you.
You can just drop into any hijab shop in your city and look for scarves, these days we have a wide range of beautiful and colorful of scarves in india as well.

Little child it is so disheartening to see your picture with no hair. My mom too had uterus cancer and treated her at Kithwai Bangalore some 12 years back. By the grace of God she is alright. At the time she had her surgery she was 70. Now she is running 82. Can't say she is hale and healthy. But she is alright. Why I say this is you are young and you have a long way to go. Go merrily and cheerfully. May Shridi Sai Ram my Guru follow you and take care you. Tears swelled up child when I was reading through and they trickle over my cheeks.It is not out of pity it is out of admiration at your fortitude. My tears are a little salute to you. With blessings

Hi vaidehi... congrats to you...for facing it so bold. you spoke my mind...yes..I m a breast cancer survivor for the past 8 yrs. had cancer at 30 yrs wen my son was 2 yrs old... underwent surgery, radiation and chemo 6 cycles ....and all the sufferings u underwent. Difficult situations make us more strong and wise. so dont worry. concentrate on you, your child and family. keep yourself active as you r now. I have a close friend who had hodgkings lymphoma stage IV, treated around 20 yrs back. she is perfect now , married and has a nine yr old girl child.
so keep up your confidence and have a regular check up... God bless you and your family. you can keep in touch...take care
