Guess this is why they say never get too ahead of yourself...we've been planning away and already going through the million things we're gonna go during my brothers wedding...

I have an interview coming up with the University of Virginia to hopefully get an acceptance into their business school for an MBA...Financially it is going to kill my family, but my dad really pushed me to apply and I'm in with a chance.

Dad went to the hospital a couple of days ago, this is his report Doctors said this is the best of a bad situation, but it doesn't feel like that atm.

Asif bhai - I'm sure the doctor mentioned it, but everything just sort of rushed past me.

They initially did a colonoscopy and found one medium to large sized tumor and then did 2 CT Scans today to understand more about it and also to see if it had spread anywhere else(inconclusive, more tests on saturday)

Oncologist said - he will require surgery and chemo/radiation - but said, the chemo might come first and then surgery. I can't remember why he said one might be useful than the other - just all a blur. My dad is fit, hardly ever smoked, never drank, loved sweets a few years back, so has diabetes like everyone else in Bangladesh, but he is completely fine otherwise. No complaints. It just doesn't make any sense.

Barring obvious cases (e.g. chain-smokers), cancer almost never makes any sense. But cure rates with surgery are apparently pretty high for stage 1: https://www.caring4cancer.com/go/thy...-carcinoma.htm

If the doctors say this is the best of a bad situation, your dad might be lucky and this might have been caught early. But doctors in Bangladesh are doctors in Bangladesh.

Gladiator - let me give give you one positive take away to take to bed. Cancer treatment has advanced so much these days that for many scenarios it is either possible to have full remission or managed as a chronic conditions. The stats that are bandied about are many years behind as the longitudinal studies trail the treatment for years and often decades. Modern treatment has come a long way. Your dad's young and can handle the rigor of the treatment. Take that from someone who has been intimately involved with a loved one's cancer now 6 years free. Hang in there and be there for a dad. Darn - he's just a few years older than me.

Dear Gladiator,
I am really sad to hear this news and i guess your situation resonates more with me because I went through the same experience with my father. I would like to echo what Z bhai said about keeping your spirits up and being positive and I want to also add that if possible perhaps you could fly him to Singapore or Thailand to examine his situation once more. I know the treatment costs are huge in both of these places but at least what you could get is a more accurate assessment of the treatment options and perhaps that treatment can be administered at a local hospital in Bangladesh under the supervision of the oncologist in hospitals like Mount Elizabeth or Banrungrad or Samitivez etc. I know that if the tumor can be removed surgically then the chances for survival is much higher so within this bad news this is still a positive. Be strong for your dad and lift his spirits.

I would suggest you the same. My boro mama has also gone through the same procedure. From his experience, I can say, family support is vital in such situation. Ask your all family members not to talk any bad words in front of him. Always keep him positive and give courage to face it. It's a long process, so don't get frustrated quickly.

My prayers are with you and your family. InshaAllah everything will be fine again by the grace of almighty Allah.

Gladiator, sorry to hear about the test results. I hope and pray he recovers from the ailment soon. As others have mentioned, the disease has become much more commonplace and curable today than it sounds. Also my unsolicited two cents on pursuing MBA, you should go for it if things work out unless your dad specifically wants you by his side during his recovery process. You sound like someone who has the smarts, just do what you need to do to build the credentials for the corporate/business world, and the sky will be the limit.

Just ghore dukhlaam. I am very grateful to all of you for offering up a prayer or wishing my father well. I hope you will continue to think of him because his news isn't good.

We sat down with an oncologist today - my father has rectal cancer and on the dukes system it is a grade III - so it is unfortunately advanced. The cancer has spread to lymph nodes around his groin and also 1-2 places in his stomach.

The main tumor itself is quite low in his rectum and is starting to obstruct, so unfortunately his rectal passage will have to be removed and for what time Allah has in mind for him, he will have to use a colostomy bag

Doctor was very pessimistic and said 'apnader financial ability thaakle take him to

-TATA memorial in India
-Bumrungrad in Thailand
-MT Elizabeth in Singapore

Even then he said he has 18-24 months left, 3 years max.

Kichu bujhte paarchina - sorry, this isn't my blog - baba-ke kibhabe ki bolbo.

Kaal United Hospital-e giye ekta second opinion nibo and then probably start working on paperwork and costs for Thailand.

Not sure when I'll get back online here - but I am selfish and I hope you guys will continue to pray for my baba. He's too young to die

I'm so sorry to hear that. We will all pray for your baba. If you need someone to talk to - if you wish you can pm me your number and I can call you. Not sure what I can say but sometimes speaking to a complete stranger is often easier and might help.

A second opinion might still be worth it, are you considering Singapore/Thailand at all? Personally, I don't trust doctors in Bangladesh a single bit, especially when it comes to serious matters beyond a basic cold. I'm no specialist, but the medical system in Bangladesh is as crappy as it gets and doctors get it wrong most of the time.

I agree, I have a few family members that have gotten screwed over, and sadly in most cases suffering from it, because of BD doctors.

@gladiator, i can feel what you are going through, your emotions and perplexities. All we can do is to pray for your father. This is very very important. Also you should encourage your father and keep his spirit high. let him do his daily work as much as he can. Take him to positive vibration. Make him hear and speak and think positive words. Doing meditation can also help him achieve that. Remember this is just a small test from the Almighty and Insh-allah He is due to shower blessings to your family-

My prayers are with your dad Gladiator. Hope ATMR is right - I too have similar experience with doc's wrong treatment - thye declared that my friend will only live for three months - my friend is till alive and it's been more than 30 years now!

It's a good idea to take your dad to India and see a good doc. Let's hope for the best.
I hope and pray that your dad would be fine. Please keep faith.

May Allah Subhanahu Wa T'ala grant your father full recovery as soon as possible, Gladiators. And yes, do consider Singapore as an option; we are still way behind as far as Medical science is concerned.

Dear Gladiator I am really sorry for you. I know how you feel because i had to hear the same thing when I was doing my masters. My dad was diagnosed with Lungs cancer in Thailand but prior to that he had the misfortune of going to Apollo Hospital in Bangladesh where the doctor told him he has a respiratory virus when he complained of coughing all the time. So with all due respect to Bangladeshi doctors, I personally cannot put my faith in them anymore. I also think the situation might not be as bad as the doctors told you and you might hear more positive news from a doctor abroad.

Bamrungrad is the top private hospital in Thailand and probably the most renowed among international patients but there are many other cheaper options which might not have the posh looks but could provide the treatment that is necessary. If you want to know more please pm me and I will try to provide details of more hospitals in thailand which might be cheaper.

stay strong bro
