After 5 years of MBBS ,I spent 3 years getting trained to be a Specialist and then again went to UK and trained further and now am aiming to get further trained in Australia sometime in coming times. Have you ever wondered why and what?Pregnancy is after all so simple.You have sex,conceive,visit the doctor on monthly basis or as called get the investigations done as advised and comes term.Labour starts and epidural comes Handy and unable to push....doctor will pull the baby out.So simple.
But no it is not as simple. In these years we learn the NORMAL as well as the abnormal of the Pregnancy as well as other Gynaecological problem.
Have you ever wondered after labelling your pregnancy as low risk pregnancy why do I call you on regular basis to meet me,ask you to get investigated for various conditions as recommended by interntional guidelines for pregnancy care?Because a NORMAL Pregnancy has the potential to turn into abnormal anytime of the 40 weeks of pregnancy.And a regular visit is advised either to catch such a complication ASAP and correct it if possible and if Uncorrectable to terminate the pregnancy ASAP.
Why am I writing this post?I don't wish all of you to live the 40 weeks under fear of something bad striking your pregnancy but at the same .time a complication should neither be taken as self fault or doctor's negligence .Not all pregnancies are perfect and we have to accept it.
Just Last month I had 3 such incidents
Hydrops Foetalis of previous post I have already mentioned and the husband of the lady is still trying to find out some negligence and malpractice at my end.
Another couple had gone for a routine 20 weeks scan and found an Intrauterine death with Hydrops foetalis.They were much more reasonable and took it the way it should be taken i.e in right spirit,faced it bravely and now we are trying to find the reason so that it can be prevented in next pregnancy if possible.
3rd is the saddest of all story but bravest as well. An uncomplicated pregnancy till 40 weeks,all the necessary scans,caesarean delivery as demanded by the patient and a baby with an undeveloped left heart almost incompatible with child's survival.So they decided to let the child go without any unnecessary torture of ventilator etc. No venting involved.....they simply said even if the ultrasonologist had detected it during pregnancy the outcome would have been no different. But it is not so easy to take such a tragedy so calmly.
BUT AT THE END ONE HAS TO AGREE THAT NOT ALL PREGNANCIES HAVE A HAPPY OUTCOME,THINGS DO TURN FOR WORSE FROM LOW RISK PREGNANCY TO NORMAL FINDINGS.AND IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO GET ALL THE PREGNANT WOMEN INVESTIGATED FOR ALL THE POSSIBLE COMPLICATIONS OF THE PREGNANCY.
So,trust GOD.....whatever the outcome,he has thought something better for you.
BTW all was well with Sunanda Pushkar till yesterday except for her tweets and today she is gone :-(
So normal does turn to abnormal.Ek pal hai Zindgi,ek pal kuch bhi nahi,kahe ka gum kaise khushi?
