MY PROFILE TMM
Being a care giver to a patient - having experienced the whole cycle of mental and physical trauma a patient faces, I have realized that psycho-social support for a patient is probably more (if not equally) important than the medical treatment.
The social dogmas attached to this disease - purane janmu ka phal / it is contagious .. so don't go near a cancer patient / cancer = cancel .. / will recur even after treatment ... so why go thru the pain /etc etc - coupled with the need for RESOURCES, lead many patients to accept the inevitabilty of outcome (death) and thus they do not go for treatment.
THIS IS HERE THAT PSYCHO SOCIAL SUPPORT IS MOST NECESSARY TO HANDHOLD AND MOTIVATE THE PATIENT TO GO FOR AND START PROPER TREATMENT.
