Hope you are doing well.

I need to give you a different news about me - about 25 days back I have been diagnosed with multiple myeloma of bone marrow.

Currently am in Indore undergoing treatment.

Am doing absolutely fine and with significant improvement on vital parameters being monitored daily, I feel like a teenager ready to play.

Last friday my brother had a good consultantion with top Oncologist - Dr.Tapan Saikia in Mumbai. A detailed treatment program has been drawn.

4 cycles of Chemo ( 4 doses each cycle) over 3-4 months will be administered in Indore under direct supervision of Dr.Manish Neema, hematologist-oncologist and my elder brother Dr.Sameer Ghosh, anesthist.

Followed up with autologus bone marrow/stem cell transplantation sometime in Jan/Feb 2015 at Mumbai by Dr.Tapan Saikia. This is likely to be a 4 - 6 weeks process.

Post that monthly maintenance schedule and checks to continue in Bangalore.

Multiple other mini medical events based on how I respond and progress around these procedures  are likely.

During this period my immunity will be low and to maintain peak hyegine and health we will stay connected more on wapp/sms/mail/call. Maybe I will also create a new account on Facebook.

Personal meetings will be restricted, handshake, hugs....all..all needs to be banked and encashed with interest later.

Cheers and Warm regards,

Avik Ghosh
