Then we took him for checkup to a local dispensary and over there the concerned doctor told us to immediately take him to tropical hospital.We took him to tropical hospital and did all the blood tests which were asked to do. After a month we received his report stating that our child is suffering through thalassemia, We were already aware that thalassemia does not have any proper treatment. We were of the opinion that people suffering from this disease hardly survive for maximum of 20-21 years. Thinking about everything that is happening around, Tapan's parent were in great dilemma and they were not able to understand as of what to do in the following circumstances. Even Tapan was aware of the situation and gets so downhearted that he though that his disease is incurable.
Whenever I used to lost my blood I doesn't used to feel like doing anything, like doesn't feel eating, or to do anything around. I used to feel sick akmost all the time, I used to sleep alot and spend my time and I was not able to play also. Sometimes Tapan used to come to me and cry and questions me what to do Mama and I also used to feel bad alot as I was not able to do anything to cure him.
Dr Anupam Chakrapani took the responsibility of transferring Tapan's bone marrow and undertake his treatment proedure. As the treatment got started Tapan was asked to stay in Kolkata for the minimum of one month.
Dr Anupam Chakrapani took the responsibility of transferring Tapan's bone marrow and undertake his treatment proedure. As the treatment got started Tapan was asked to stay in Kolkata for the minimum of one month. And Dr Anupam Chakrapani used to do his regular check-up every week and finally his transplant was done. Tapan parua came with a thalassemia diagnosis and at that time he used to take blood every month and at that moment I had a word with his parents and asked them weather to do transplant or to keep transferring blood in his body for lifetime. Tapan parents got agreed for transplant and then we did an HLA testing with his small sister. We made Tapan's parents understand that if the transplant will not be done then they have to continue with the procedure of transferring the blood in his body for life time and his survival period will also be limited. Luckily we got a bone marrow matched with Tapan's sister and finally we did a successfull transplant. Previously Tapan has to go and take blood on regular basis and was not able to attained classes, he couldn't play anything and used to get tired real soon. But now its been more then one year have passed and tapan doesn't have to go to take blood, he is almost normal, he regularly goes to school, does all his own work by himself and he is cured for lifetime. I want to say thanks to Dr Anupam Chakrapani, its because of him that Tapan is infront of us, playing football, goes to school and does all his work.
