Patient Brief

Agok Lual had a strong history of consuming tobacco products. At the age of 65, Agok Lual had a painful

laryngeal cancer treatment in indiacough with bloodstains on it. He got worried and went to a general practitioner. After asking Agok about symptoms, the doctor prescribed some medications and sent him back. Sadly, those medications didn’t bring any relief and he went to another doctor. The doctor took his samples and sent them to the laboratory for investigation. The reports assured that it isn’t cancer.

After a few months, his cough recurred along with the pain while swallowing. This time, he decided to approach a specialist. Few scans and tests confirmed his fear – advanced laryngeal cancer, a voice box cancer. Frequent visits to doctors and delays in getting the appropriate treatment worsened his condition. At that very moment, he had sensed that he won’t get the right treatment in his country and that’s when he decided to get laryngeal cancer treatment in India.


The rollercoaster ride begins!

After Agok decided to travel to India, the main problem began from where and how to start. The clock was ticking and so was his health as the laryngeal cancer symptoms were getting serious. One of his close friends suggested taking help from a health assistance partner in India for his medical treatment. While searching for the best healthcare assistance partner, his search ended at a patient testimonial thanking Medsurge India for every thick and thin during his treatment.

How Medsurge was Helpful in Arranging Treatment in India

This search led him to contact Medsurge India. The team arranged his entire treatment including visa processing, doctor’s appointment, accommodation, transportation, and everything that is to be required.

The team supported Agok and his nephew, Mutt Sisco throughout the journey right from picking from the airport to departing from India. Dushyant from Medsurge India even helped to lower the treatment costs for which Agok was quite grateful.

The Treatment journey begins!

On the day of the appointment with Dr. Niranjan Naik, a renowned surgical oncologist at Fortis Memorial Research Institute, Gurgaon, Agok was quite worried about what would happen, what the doctor would say, what treatment the doctor will opt for.

After going through reports, Dr. Naik explained that his throat cancer has reached the final stage. This news shook Agok and his nephew. But the best part was when Dr. Naik convinced them due to medical advancements, the cure is possible by doing total laryngectomy surgery. Dr. Naik explained the entire treatment process that will include throat cancer surgery followed by radiotherapy and chemotherapy.  

The surgery was finally done. Agok was kept in ICU for two days and shifted to the general room later. He was under Dr. Naik’s supervision for close monitoring. 


The follow-up visits!

After two weeks, Agok was discharged. He had to stay in India for regular follow-ups. Therefore, Dushyant arranged their accommodation and food near the hospital. The follow-up visits took about two months in which he also underwent Radiotherapy and Chemotherapy sessions. As his voice box was removed due to cancer, Dr Naik implanted a voice prosthesis as well so that he can speak. Agok aged about 65 years back then, Dr. Naik already explained the chances of shedding pounds and slow recovery post-surgery. 

After the follow-up procedure was done, he and his nephew left for his native country. Medsurge India team is still in touch with Agok for his future consultations with Dr. Naik. Agok and his nephew are thankful to the team and Dr. Naik.
