My father started to feel pain in his abdominal area one night in his sleep. After three consecutive days of pain we consulted our general physician and he recommended us some general blood tests and scans. After some concerning test results, he recommended us to a pulmonologist in Kanpur (hometown), who sent us for further tests and that’s how my father got misdiagnosed with tuberculosis. Since tuberculosis, is a fairly common disease with a very standard treatment journey, we got back to our house and embarked on the 9-months tuberculosis treatment journey.
My father had already been on the tuberculosis medications for a month, but his health only seemed to deteriorate with fever, night sweats, and lossof appetite. Owing to his worsening condition, he got hospitalised in Kanpur, and was put on chest tube drainage by his pulmonologist and radiologist. After one week of drainage, the doctors noticed something out of ordinary in one of my father’s scans suggesting some kind of blood clotting near his liver, and thereby asked us to consult a gastroenterologist as well as a pulmonologist in Delhi.
The very next day, we got him discharged from the hospital in Kanpur and went to Delhi, where after meeting several doctors (gastroenterologist, pulmonologist, radiologist, heart specialists) we ended up in Sir Gangaram to meet Dr. Arup Basu and Dr. Ajit Yadav, who after the initial analysis concluded that my father was diagnosed with Chylothorax as well as inherent thrombophilia.
Chylothorax is a rare but serious condition in which lymph formed in the digestive system (chyle) accumulates in your chest cavity. Lymph is a fluid containing white blood cells and proteins that moves through your lymphatic system and drains into your bloodstream. Because of the rare and the underreported nature of the disease, not a lot of research is available for not just patients but even for doctors in India.
Chylothorax can either be traumatic or non-traumatic, but since my father had not gone any major surgery or trauma, the doctors got down to eliminating the non-traumatic causes for chylothorax which mainly comprised of lymphoma. Fortunately, my father was not diagnosed with any kind of abnormalities in his pleural space or bone marrow which made his scenario one of the rarer of the rare cases with undiagnosed cause of chylothorax. At this prompt, Dr Ajit Yadav went ahead with a minimally invasive treatment approach, lymphangiography, which proved to be a success in stopping the drainage of lymph in his pleural cavity.
One week after the procedure we were all back from Delhi and in a month my father was back to his normal routine and all the credits goes to the doctors in Sir Gangaram. If it was not for them my father would still have been on his third month of Tuberculosis treatment.
I, through my father’s journey, would like to highlight the importance of awareness about such rare diseases not just generally but more so among the doctors, who start the treatment withoutanalysing the case to case situation. I applaud the great work that Dr. Ajit Yadav is doing in the field and it makes me count my blessings to have gotten to him right in time barring all the wrong information that was given to us as patient’s family.
Dr. Arun Gupta is one of the finest and most efficient doctors in are country. He Treated my father Dr. K.D. Gupta in 2014 at sir Ganga Ram Hospital, when he was admitted there for accidently swallowing his one tooth denture.
Since there had been slight damage to my father's food pipe the doctors said h could not be given anything to eat or drink for few days and needed another souse to be given the necessary nutriation for this body. Dr. Arun Gupta suggested putting a picc line, a tube which would be put in one of the veins to provide the food supplements. we were a little vary since we did not know much about the procedure but Dr. Gupta was very forthcoming in explaining everything and he flawtessly and painlessly performed the proccdure.
My Father developed another problem when the fluid given to him for a test baked into his chest cavity and compressed his left lung. ideally he would have had to undergo a surgery but given his age (74 years), Dr. Arun Gupta performed another painless and less invasive proeeduse of inserting a tube from the side of the chest to drain the fluid.
Dr. Arun Gupta not only performed the proeedures, but continued to come and check my father to ensure he was doing well. he is a good doctor and an even better human being, and we would be forever greatful to him and all the oters doctors who treated my father and helped saving his life.K.D. Gupta
