'One evening I was returning home from work, and suddenly I was gripped with a never-before-felt pain in my head. I also started vomiting. After few minutes, the pain did stop, only to recur after 10 days,' says the thirty-eight year old Varanasi Sarwesvar Sharma. “I am a farmer,” continues the frail-looking father of three daughters aged eleven, eight and five years. “I did not have the time to go to the hospital; I cannot afford to go; I cannot wait long hours as it generally happens in any hospital. So I started taking Homeopathy pills, but as days passed my condition only got worse. For some inexplicable reason, my vision started deteriorating, and I had to start wearing spectacles, ”Sarweswar recalls the troublesome days of his trauma. But this was only the beginning. The Terrible Trauma On January 29, 2007, at 10:30 PM when he was lying on his bed, Sarweswar says, “I got a wake up call - an excruciating headache which lasted for four long hours, and thereafter I could not open my right eye lid at all! I lost vision in my left eye.” It was the most dreadful day of his life. He felt utterly helpless and was worried like never before. His brother immediately took him to a private hospital in Kakinada, a town in the East Godavari District in the state of Andhra Pradesh. The doctors there promptly advised a Radiology examination. What the CT scan revealed, devastated Sarweswar and his family. He had a brain tumour. The hospital in Kakinada was ill-equipped to handle such cases and the doctors referred him to the Nizam Institute of Medical Sciences (NIMS), a reputed Government medical university located in the capital city of Hyderabad. But Sarweswar was too worried. He knew it would cost a fortune and for a farmer like him it was unthinkable. It was at this time that destiny decided to come to his rescue in form of a kind hearted nurse. The gentle lady seeing his plight intervened and informed Sarweswar of the Sri Sathya Sai Institute of Higher Medical Sciences at Whitefield. The moment he heard that it was free hospital which specializes in Brain Surgery, Sarweswar wasted no time. On February 1 st, 2007 Sarwesvar arrived at Bhagavan’s Hospital with his brother for a checkup and was immediately admitted. A series of blood test and radiological investigations followed. The doctors’ impression of the scan read: “It is a well defined rim enhancing heterogeneous intensity lesion, widening the sellar and suprasellar region, measuring 3.4 x 3 x 4.3cms. It is compressing the optic chiasma and displacing the right internal carotid artery (ICA) around it. Areas of different hemorrhages are seen within the lesion. In simple words, it meant, it was Pituitary tumor (abnormal growth of the cells in the Pituitary gland located at the base of the brain) accompanied with bleeding. This condition caused an increase in pressure leading to compression of the optic nerve resulting in visual deterioration and drowsiness and finally blindness.
