Everything was fine until 9th April when my father had to undergo abdominal sonography. He had been showing signs of pancreatic cancer and the following day at the Hinduja Hospital, I got the shock of my life. He had been diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer (Stage Three) and a considerable part of his liver and pancreas was consumed by a tumor.
The news shocked everyone in the family. My father had been the pillar of the family for our entire lives. He was always there for us, and now, his life was at serious risk. But he was determined that he would not be bogged down by any circumstance in his life. He firmly believed that he would fight and survive cancer.
I began reading extensively on various types of cancer, its causes, and the plight of victims. Just when I was sure that he might not survive the disease, his assuring words gave me a ray of hope. We started chemotherapy along with ayurvedic treatment as we wanted to investigate every possibility. We were prepared to give everything necessary to help him survive. Yet, things didn’t work in his favor, and he lost in the long race against cancer.
What I learned from my father’s demise:
I am a dietitian and know a few people who have endured disease and are doing great in their lives now. I am aware of a person who once suffered from brain tumor but came out of it thanks to ketogenic diet and Ayurveda along with regular treatment.
There are many early signs of pancreatic cancer that we should be aware of. Alongside treatment, diet and integrated care provided by groups like ZenOnco.io play a big role in the recuperation of cancer. The disease is curable if detected early with the implementation of corrective measures.
