THE PASSAGE OF THE DENTURES - 3

 THE PASSAGE OF THE DENTURES - 3

DR H.L. CHULANI

 

Human perseverance is legendary. Mr. Sheikh from Hyderabad had an anal fistula. An anal fistula is an opening close to the anus which periodically discharges blood, pus and sometimes faecal matter and generally makes the life of the sufferer miserable. He had been operated seven times at Hyderabad, and each time the operation had failed, leading to recurrence of the disease. Undeterred by the failures he came to Bombay and was operated upon. The operation turned out to be successful and he went back believing that miracle had cured him. The reputation of Bombay doctors must have risen a notch in his eyes.
