I am Ravi, working as a reporter in a newspaper agency. My mother was feeling tired and had severe headache for few days. So, we consulted a doctor at a nearby hospital. The doctor gave her medicines. But there was no improvement in her health. Then the doctor who examined her told me, she had a tumour in her brain. It came as a shock to us as well as terrifying. We took our mother to a prestigious hospital. There the doctor had examined the tumour, outlined the pathways for the treatment. All the options that the doctor gave had side effects. So, there was confusion and anxiety about what kind of treatment we needed to choose for my mother. So, we were in dilemma and anxiety.
Amidst this dilemma, I came to know about Yuva Spandana program through a friend and visited Yuva Spandana Kendra. Yuva Samalochaka at the Kendra gave emotional support by understanding our problem.
We realized that while making any decision, it is very important to find out the pros and cons of the decision taken. When it is the matter of health, we need to be completely aware of what we are dealing with and talk to a person who is familiar with the information. Therefore, Yuva Samalochaka referred us to a good doctor and suggested taking guidance from him. Me, my family and Yuva Samalochaka went to meet the doctor. We discussed my mothers health condition and showed him the reports. The doctor guided us through her conditions, pros and cons of different options that we had. Finally, we decided to go ahead with one of the best options and we received psychological support from the doctor as well. My mother undergone the treatment process and now her condition is better. I thank Yuva Spandana Kendra who guided us in this difficult time.
