Metastatized Stage 4 Colorectal Cancer
Mrs Madhavi Muralitharan had been diagnosed with Stage 4 Colorectal Cancer that had metastasized to the liver. She had 9 tumours occupying a major part of her liver. Such extensive tumour, generally requires multiple surgeries to remove. At MGM Healthcare, Dr Thiagarajan S, Director, Institute of Liver Diseases, Transplant & HPB Surgery, and his team decided to perform a complex, innovative and multimodal surgery to remove all 9 tumours in a single surgery. Before performing the surgery, a 3D reconstruction of the liver and the tumours was done along with the Radiology team to familiarise the approach of the surgery. She underwent post-operative biological tumour antibody therapy and cancer chemotherapy for 6 months.
After 8 months of rigourous follow-up, we are happy to report that the patient is in remission with no detectable tumours, confirmed with a PET-CT scan. Mrs Madhavi has also managed to gain back her weight and is now able to lead a normal and healthy life. Her son expresses his gratitude to MGM for providing all-round care. Mrs Madhavi thanks Dr Thiagarajan and the entire team of oncologists.
