I am overwhelmed with gratitude as I put this down. I brought my mother to Dr. Vottery in 2006. My mum had stage 3 cancer. She had had ovarian cancer previously and after a removal surgery the cancer had spread to the lungs, bone, specs in the liver i.e metastasis. So when I met Dr.Vottery that evening he mentioned that it was a stage that most doctors would give mum ‘not more than a month’. But he put her under his care with radio therapy and chemo therapy. Well, mum who apparently had only a month to live… went on to live 10 years !!! ONLY because of Dr. Ravindra Vottery’s treatment. And those 10 years were as good as possible for mummy. She was full of life, and barring a few issues she felt healthy and great. In fact when mum was first checked, her ‘seat bone’ had completely ‘dissolved’, ‘eaten’ by the cancer. The radiotherapy and chemotherapy actually restored it back within months. It was as if the bone got ‘filled in’. Would like to thank the radiotherapist too. After the treatment she was ‘clean’ for her entire lifetime,. To have my mum with us for 10 years and in such incredibly good health, great spirits, positivity is something i cannot thank enough for. I believe she lived her best years then . Mum needed to visit him every three months, and she would do that all by herself because she felt comfortable with him. In fact mummy was short of hearing, so communicating with her was a slight challenge, but doc was always so supportive and co-operative. I believe mum and doc shared a beautiful bonding and inspite of being an extremely busy doc, he would give mum the time she needed, and apparently take her around and share her story with others, quoting her as an example of strength. I don’t think I can ever share the feeling of gratefulness I have for doc. I must also add that the hospital too has been very kind and co-operative, (just the way a hospital ought to be ). Mum could do her checkups and visits every quarter just by herself, without any caretaker, I am sure it speaks volumes about how the hospital took care of her, since she was alone. In telugu, as they say “Koti Koti Namaskaralu’. As a family, we are ever ever so grateful to Dr. Vottery and Yashoda hospital. I must thank all the staff who serviced mummy, helped her, took her around in the wheel chair, fetched her reports, got her appointments and most importantly made her feel cared-for. Sometimes the words ‘Thank You’ seem hollow as compared to what one feels, and right now that is the overwhelming sentiment. Dear doctor Vottery, if you read this please know, that my entire family is indebted to you for life. (literally so : ). Blessed to have mum under your care.
