A 67 year-old-lady approached the practitioner on 7 September 2016 with complaints of very painful boils with pus in and around the scar from an earlier operation. A leading surgeon concluded that the boils were due to osteonecrosis which usually results from radiotherapy. Eighteen years ago, she had undergone radiotherapy for breast cancer and later major surgery for removal of severely infected ribs. The surgeon suggested removal of the infected ribs to stop further spread of the infection. The patient was very scared to undergo surgery this time as she had to bear acute pain not only before but also for a fortnight after her previous surgery. The practitioner counseled her to have courage and go ahead with surgery but keep unflinching faith in Swami, the Divine Doctor. She gave her the following remedies:
#1. CC10.1 Emergencies + CC12.1 Adult tonic + CC15.1 Mental & Emotional tonic…TDS
#2. CC2.1 Cancers - all + CC2.2 Cancer pain + CC9.2 Infections acute + CC21.11 Wounds & Abrasions…6TD
On 27 September, she underwent surgery with full faith as advised by the practitioner. The operation took over 5 hours and to the patient’s surprise it was painless. The next day the patient spoke to the practitioner from her ICU bed and said she felt no pain either before or after the operation and was very happy. To the surprise of the surgeons, infection had not spread as they had expected and only one top right rib was removed.
After a month, the dosage of #2 was reduced to QDS. After two months, the dosage of #2 was further reduced to TDS but to BD for #1. After three months, the patient visited the practitioner to express her gratitude. She was advised to continue both remedies OD for a month and thereafter reduce to maintenance dosage of OW. In a recent follow-up visit the patient was happy and healthy with no complaints and did not feel the need to continue the remedy.
