Vijay Jangada (Multiple Myeloma): Have Faith in the Doctors

Vijay Jangada (Multiple Myeloma): Have Faith in the Doctors

One day, while riding my bike, I slipped and almost fell. But I got twisted in such a way that it developed severe back Pain. I immediately consulted my brother, a doctor, who did an X-ray, and I had some relief after two to three hours.

Multiple Myeloma Diagnosis

We went to Nasik to consult a Spinal Specialist, who asked me to get an MRI done. I got my MRI done, and after seeing the report, he said that the Pain could not be because of the little twist, and he asked for some tests. I underwent those tests, and we got to know that it was multiple myeloma.

Multiple Myeloma Treatment

The doctor told me that I had to undergo fourteen sessions of Chemotherapy and an autologous bone marrow transplantation. I took a second opinion and got the same advice. I completed my Chemotherapy and got admitted for bone marrow transplantation. The transplant was successful, and I was put for regular follow-ups.

I had to fight for my family. My family gave me massive support throughout my journey. My wife never left me alone, and my brothers also helped me a lot.

From the very beginning, I maintained a mindset focused on recovery and fought with positivity. I reasoned that since it had happened to me and couldn't be changed, why not give it my all in the fight?

I made a lot of lifestyle changes. I used to include dry fruits, Indian gooseberry, and many other healthy items in my diet. Due to my good lifestyle habits, I didn't need to make many adjustments after my bone marrow transplantation.

I follow Jainism and believe in letting go. My dharmic knowledge keeps me happy. I never dwell on the thought that something has happened to me. Mentally, I am as strong as before. I go for a walk and cycle every day. I never searched more about multiple myeloma because I didn't want to give cancer much importance.

Money is a big issue, so one should have insurance. I love planting trees, so I do that because it makes me happy. Cancer has positively changed me.

Parting Message

What has to happen will happen, and you cannot change it; the only thing you can do is be positive. Have faith in the doctors. Go to the counselors and seek help.
