Ms. Claudia arrived in Delhi on Sunday 21st July, 2019. He was received and safely accommodated to the hotel by the Patient Care team at MediGence. He was picked up by the patient care manager from MediGence team next morning i.e. on 22nd July 2019 from the hotel and taken to the hospital for his first consultation with Dr. Sandeep Chaddha.
Her check-up and review of her investigations revealed that Claudia had one large fibroid and this was the reason behind the pelvic pain that she had been suffering from for so long. However, she was also explained by the doctor that she has a few small ones as well, which needs to be looked into. Dr. Chaddha advised Ms. Claudia for Myomectomy surgery and scheduled the for same to be 8th August 2019.

Ms. Claudia’s Myomectomy surgery was performed to remove the fibroid and a biopsy test on it was performed as well. The biopsy confirmed that the fibroid growth was not cancerous, however, it was a type that cannot be treated 100%, suggesting that the chances of fibroids growing again a few years down the line are high. She was explained that she may ultimately have to get her uterus removed to get rid of the issue forever.
Also, during the surgery, it was realized that the smaller fibroids are too risky to be removed and therefore, they were left as is. Those can only be taken care of through Hysterectomy (Uterus Removal).
After keeping Ms. Claudia under medical supervision for one day after the surgery, she was discharged on 10th August 2019.
Ms. Claudia’s Myomectomy surgery was done successfully. She was happy with overall patient care experience as received by the doctor, hospital facility and team MediGence.
Ms. Claudia returned to Kenya on 17th September 2019 but she will be again coming back to India after 6 months for Hysterectomy surgery (Uterus Removal).
Team MediGence wishes Ms. Claudia a happy and healthy future!
