Hyderabad: Surgeons at the Aware Gleneagles Global Hospital, LB Nagar have performed a complex procedure to remove a part of the ‘cancerous stomach’ to save life of a 31-year-old staff nurse from the hospital. With tumour inside the abdomen bursting, the patient was in acute pain, which needed an immediate surgery to clean-up the cancer spreading portions completely, doctors said.
The nurse was admitted to the hospital with acute pain. Post basic tests, surgery was initiated for a possible intestinal perforation, only to be surprised on the operation table with the presence of a perforated cancer in the abdomen causing severe pain and imminent risk, surgeons said.
Dr. Bhupathi Rajendra Prasad, Senior Surgical Gastroenterologist said, “In this case, when the patient was presented to us, we pre-empted it was a case of intestinal perforation which too is an emergency condition. However, on opening the abdomen we were shocked to notice it was a perforated cancer in the abdomen. Patient is currently undergoing chemotherapy treatment to avoid possibilities of any recurrence of cancer.”
