(1) A 17 years old boy , son of a watchman , presented to us with excessive diarrhea ( stool frequency 15-20 eatery stools / day ) , failure to attain height, no development of secondary sexual characters and stunted height. He gave a history suggestive of intestinal obstruction at the age of 8 years, for which he have undergone surgery in a nursing home. During surgery the surgeon found lots of adhesions between intestine loops suggestive of tuberculosis. The surgeon could do the limited adhesiolysis and made a joint between a small intestine loop and segment of colon (large intestine). His obstruction got relieved and patient improved on anti-tubercular treatment. But after the surgery patient started having excessive diarrhea just after eating. He gradually developed malabsorption syndrome. His growth stopped and started developing deficiency of vitamins and trace elements. On examination he was looking like a ten year old child with no secondary sexual characters he was getting treatment from general practitioner for chronic diarrhea without any improvement. On evaluation he found to have anemia, signs of vitamin B deficiency. On small bowel study it was found that the proximal small bowel (jejunum) was anastomosed to large intestine. Because of this anastomosed almost 80% of small intestine and nearly half intestine was bypassed and there was little intestine left for absorption nutrients and water. So it was decided to re-operate after building up with intravenous nutrition and blood transfusion. After building him up he was operated and the previous anastomosis (joint between small and large intestine) was dismantled and both the small and large intestine openings were closed in two layers. The patient started oral liquids after third day and was given full diet after fifth day. He was discharged on seventh day. The patient’s diarrhea stopped immediately and started gaining weight. His height started increasing and secondary sexual characters developing. After one year of follow-up he gained nearly 6 inches and 15 kg of weight.
(2) A 71 year old made had Pain Abdomen and jaundice which was increasing gradually in December 2012 on investigate he was found to have a tumor in the Pancreas on lower end of Bile Duct. He consulted Gastroenterologist. A pipe (stent) was place in the CBD to decrease jaundice. He was advised to consult surgeon for which he declined. In March 2013 (After a gap of 2 1/2 Months), he had fever and severe pain in the abdomen. Patient was very weak on presentation. On investigations it was found that gall bladder had developed pus inside and had ruptured locally to form pus in abdominal wall also in PET scan, the cause was also looking localized (not spread). He had very low protein; his kidney function was not good. First Of all it was seceded to remove gall bladder and plus to improve the condition of patient. Laparoscopic (key hole) surgery was done to remove gall bladder and the pus. After the surgery patient was put on high protein diet, intravenous nutrients (multiple by veins) and protein injection and extensive chest physiotherapy on these measures the patient improving within a weak. After that patient was taken up for surgery for Pancreatic Tumor (Whipple’s surgery) which is the major surgery of Abdomen. In which the part of Pancreas, Bile Duct, Duodenum, part of stomach and small intestine are removed. Patient remains in ICU for some time and patient was discharged after 2 weeks of Post Operative stay. Usually in these situations the surgeons tend to avoid surgery as it can be a risky proposition but because of proper planning and hard work on patient’s preparation we could give a desired good result.
(3) This was a 76 years old male who had already undergone surgery for Enlarged Prostate and had cardiac disease and convulsive disorder. He was having recurrent vomiting on & off since last 3 months. Initially in endoscopy there were not much findings but as the symptoms persisted, on repeat endoscopy there was a growth (tumor) in Pyloric Antrum (distal most part of the stomach). In multiple biopsies it turned out to be cancer in stomach. As the patient was elderly, under nutrition and slightly deranged kidney functions, he was optimized by pre-operative nutrition support and IV fluids. On 22/1/2013 Laparoscopic Radical Gastrectomy (Key hole radical surgery for cancer of stomach) was done. As this patient was elderly and not in a good health he would have been high risk case for open surgery. Because of Laparoscopic surgery (key hole surgery) the recovery was very fast and he started oral feeds very early and discharged within 7 days
(4) 31 year old male who had just got married few weeks before. He presented with increased stole frequency and bleeding per rectum. Initially he thought it was bleeding from the piles. But on investigations there was a tumor growth in the rectum producing these symptoms. After careful evaluation it was, found to be localized cancer to the wall of rectum only. Laparoscopic Anterior Resection was done (Removal of Rectum by key hole surgery and the normal passage for stool was given.) Because of Laparoscopic Surgery the patient improved very fast and now he is undergoing Chemo & Radiotherapy. Cancer of large Intestine & Rectum usually seen in middle aged & elderly people. Usually it is not seen in younger individual unless they have certain cancer syndromes running in family. Here it is important to stress that cancer can be found in younger individual also and any bleeding from the rectum should be evaluated thoroughly to pick up these cancer early.
