International Patient Experience

Mr. Zang, Nigeria
Brain Haematoma Surgery India

My name is Zang, and I am from Nigeria. My doctor had recommended Brain Haematoma Surgery but there are meager health facilities in Nigeria. So I searched on the internet for better options and came across Forerunners Healthcare Consultants which helped me receive treatment under a highly skilled surgeon in Hyderabad, India. I have been given a second life, thanks to Forerunners Healthcare team and the doctors.

Overview

Brain Cancer the very words strike fear in the heart of anyone suffering from one. It once was considered as one of the most frightful events that could occur. Though, the treatment of brain cancer is extremely difficult because of polyclonicity, the Blood: Brain barrier, the diffuse infiltrative nature of these tumors, and the perilous location of some tumors. However, with improving technology and the gradual unfolding of scientific understanding of the basic biology of brain tumors, patients and families can look to the future with considerably more hope. Hence with Brain Cancer Surgery performed using these modern methods makes the patient stand up with courage and confidence.

What is Brain Cancer?

A Brain Cancer is a group (mass) of abnormal cells that start in the brain. Cancers of the brain are the consequence of abnormal growth of cells in the brain. Brain cancers can arise from primary brain cells, from the cells that form other brain components (for example, membranes, blood vessels), or from the growth of cancer cells from other organs that have spread to the brain by the bloodstream (metastatic brain cancer). Malignant tumors are often cancerous which grow and spread aggressively, overpowering healthy cells by taking their space, blood, and nutrients.

What are the various types of Brain Cancer?

There are two main types of brain cancer:

What are symptoms of Brain Cancer?

The most common symptoms of brain cancer are weakness, difficulty in walking, seizures, and headaches. Other common symptoms are nausea, vomiting, blurred vision, or a change in a person's alertness, mental capacity, memory, speech, or personality. These symptoms can also occur in people who do not have brain cancer, and none of these symptoms alone or in combination can predict that a person has brain cancer. Cancer can occur in any part of the brain (for example, occipital, frontal, parietal, or temporal lobes, brainstem, or meningeal membranes). A few brain cancers may produce few or no symptoms (for example, some meningeal and pituitary gland tumors).

How to detect the Brain Cancer?

The initial test is an interview that includes a medical history and physical examination of the person by a health-care provider. The results of this interaction will determine if other specific tests need to be done. The most frequently used test to detect brain cancer is a CT scan (computerized tomography). This test resembles a series of X-rays and is not painful, although sometimes a dye needs to be injected into a vein for better images of some internal brain structures. Another test that is gaining popularity because of its high sensitivity for detecting anatomic changes in the brain is MRI (magnetic resonance imaging). This test also resembles a series of X-rays and shows the brain structures in detail better than CT. MRI is not as widely available as CT scanning. If the tests show evidence (tumors or abnormalities in the brain tissue) of brain cancer, then other doctors such as neurosurgeons and neurologists who specialize in treating brain ailments will be consulted to help determine what should be done to treat the patient. Occasionally, a tissue sample (biopsy) may be obtained by surgery or insertion of a needle to help determine the diagnosis. Other tests (white blood cell counts, electrolytes, or examination of cerebrospinal fluid to detect abnormal cells or increased intracranial pressure) may be ordered by the health-care practitioner to help determine the patient's state of health or to detect other health problems.

What are the preparations for Brain Cancer Surgery?

It is vitally important to enter into Brain Cancer Surgery with a positive attitude. While the extent of involvement, type of tumor and surgical skills all play a role in the surgical outcome, going into the procedure with a sense of well being will help prepare your body to respond more effectively. Prepare yourself for a lengthy and possibly arduous recovery process, and expect good results.

What are the various procedures for Brain Cancer Surgery?

If you are healthy enough to tolerate it, surgery is the first option to be considered when approaching the treatment of brain tumors. The goals of surgery depend in large part on what type of tumor is suspected based on the history, clinical findings, and radiographic picture. The aim is to remove the entire tumor, although with most tumor types residual tumor will remain after surgery. Many studies have demonstrated that greater resection will result in better outcomes. If only a small amount of tumor can be safely removed, most surgeons prefer to take a , biopsy only to identify tumor type and then non-operative therapies (radiation ) are used. Surgical procedures include:

There is an ongoing investigation evaluating other methods of locally administering radiation and chemotherapy. You can discuss these options with your team.

What post-operative care is to be taken after Brain Cancer Surgery?

The bandages on the surgical wounds need to be removed and replaced regularly. The scalp should be kept dry when the staples are not removed. The patient may be required to take up certain therapies to improve strength and coordination. Scalp hair may be washed in about 2 weeks after surgery. Hair dyes and any hair cosmetics should be avoided. The patient may be advised to avoid taking flights for about a month after the surgery as the cabin pressure may cause some problems to the patient's brain. The doctor should be consulted about the nature of the work if the patient is resuming job. Sports such as boxing and rugby should be avoided for a minimum of 12 months after the surgery. The patient should avoid drinking alcohol in large amounts as this may lead to seizures.

How much time is required to recover after Brain Cancer Surgery?

After the surgery the patient is taken to the recovery room. The patient is shifted to the neurosurgery ward once the patient regains consciousness. The patient is then closely monitored in the ICU. The patient's pupil reactions are tested and limb movements are evaluated. The patient may experience nausea and headache. The eyes may also swell and be bruised due to the surgery. The wound will feel uncomfortable for many weeks. Pain medication may be prescribed by the doctor. The scar will heal slowly and become less noticeable in 6 to 12 months. Partial recovery is possible in 1 to 4 weeks. The patient may be able to fully recover in 8 weeks after the surgery.
