Tumora colo-rectala – operatie minim invaziva
I reached MedLife by mere chance.
Last summer I came to visit the family of my sister, who married in Romania.
At a certain point during the visit, I started having abdominal pain and my appetite went low.
I was also losing weight since a while, but I never paid attention to this issue.
Because I was not feeling well at all, my sister urged me to go to a doctor for a check-up. So we reached for a gastroenteorologic control.
As the doctor suspected something, he recommended me to do a colonoscopy.
I followed the procedure, but at a certain point the doctor told me that something blocked the probe, and after the first data analysed, he mentioned a tumour.
He spoke me calmly so as not to scare me and recommended me to do a CT examination. The results showed that I had an approximatively 10 cm tumour, located in the rectum, and infiltration to the uterus.
I could not wait, the pain was growing on and on so I went to Dr. Gabriel Matei, laparoscopic surgeon.
After the case evaluation, he told me that I was at risk of getting an intestinal obstruction and surgery was needed.
I talked to the oncologist and started the treatment.
After three months I made a new set of investigations – the tumour diminished significantly and then we were able to make the surgical procedure and extract it.
This intervention involved a solo-rectal surgeon (dr.Gabriel Matei) and gynaecologist surgeon.
After a month since the operation I returned for the last intervention, colostomy removal and intestinal tract reintegration.
Today I can say that I’m alive and I won because of a quickly reacting team, very professional in the approach, exactly when most needed.
