A case about Basic negligence and superstitiom by the person leading to enormous consequences
A 24 year old boy with complaints of severe Abdominal pain , prolonged constipation and vomiting was diagnosed with Ileo Caecal TB.
6 years back his mother who doesn't live with him anymore, was diagnosed with Pulmonary TB and doctors advised proper treatment schedule to be followed but the course was not completed despite several motivations offered by the workers involved in DOTS.
the boy was the main reason as he took her mother to some religious quack rather than to a TB centre insistingly.
Alas now he is lying on the bed from last one year and is placed on oral diet. Having undergone 4 surgeries in the gut, Chances remain meagre for this fellow to live .
When the govt is providing treatment at such large scale yet India continues to get trapped in the vicious cycles of these quacks.
