13.   ROLE OF HOMOEOPATHY IN SURGICAL CASES

DR. PAWAN PAAREEK AGRA

Surgery is Repairing and reshaping of the body with knives and stitches. It is an art in itself one can learn and adopt it according to their needs & provision. Archaeological and historical evidence suggests that people have been having surgery for thousands of years.


A VERY BRIEF HISTORY OF SURGERY

The first surgical procedures were performed in the Neolithic Age (about 10,000 to 6000 BC). Trepanning, a procedure in which a hole is drilled in the skull to relieve pressure on the brain, may have been performed as early as 8000 BC. In ancient India, They are also credited with having developed plastic surgery as early as 2000 BC in response to the punishment of cutting off a person’s nose or ears for certain criminal offenses.
In the 4th century BC, the Greek physician Hippocrates published descriptions of various surgical procedures, such as the treatment of fractures and skull injuries. French surgeon Ambrose Pare, successfully employed the method of ligating or tying off, arteries to control bleeding, thus eliminating the old method of cauterizing, the bleeding part with a red-hot iron or boilling oil.
American surgeon Crawford W.Long used anesthesia in 1842 during the removal of tumors but did not publish his results until 1849. In 1865 the British surgeon Joseph Lister applied Pasteur’s work to surgery, developing antiseptic techniques including the use of a carbolic acid spray to kill germs in the operating room before surgery.

UTILIZATION OF HOMOEOPATHIC MEDICINE TO AVOID SURGERY

Appendictis Renal Calculi
Stricture Urethra Tumors
BPH & Cancer Prostate Hemorrhoids
Fissure Hydrocephalus
Fistula Tetanus
Osteomyelitits Gangrene

UTILIZATION OF HOMOEOPATHIC MEDICINE WHERE SURGERY WAS DONE

— Surgical flatulence
— post operative pains
— bad effects of anaesthesis
— septic fever
— Recurrence of tumors, renal or ureteric calculi
— Mennorhagia or metrorrhagia after Dilatations & Curettage
— Bed sores
— Surgical shock
— Jaundice
— After organ trasplantation


MENTAL STATE OF PATIENT BEFORE SURGERY

Many a times patient is encountered with anxiety, fear, nervousness, insomnia, high blood pressure before and after surgery Aconite Nap, Ars Alb, Argentum Nitricum, Crategus Oxycantha, Gelsemium, Kaliphos, Passiflora incarnata, plays a vital role before surgery by toning up the central nervous system when operation becomes a must.

HARMONIOUS EFFORT OF HOMOEOPATHIC PHYSICIAN AND SURGEON

(Video documentation of Traumatic paraplegia)
There is another class of cases where medicine and sugery must go hand in hand. A tenth standard girl resident of Switzerland met with an accident in New Delhi, whole body ecchymosed, face could not be recognized. Arnica 30 was the drug of choice every 1 hour.
Gril was taken to Loussan (Switzerland) by Air Ambulance, lancinating pain in lumbar and dorsal spine with tingling, occ burning, numbness in lower limbs. Hypericum 30 four - five times a day prior to surgery was administered Even after surgery, problem was not over, She developed very high fever with chill with highly offensive urine, from recurrent Urinary tract infection, all anti biotic failed. Arsenic Album 30 came to her rescue. Spinal surgery helped her to some extent but involuntary stool, involuntary urination and paralysis became her lifetime problem. Emotional Causticum 200 every 4th day at bed time with physiotherapy came to her rescue.


LIMITATION OF HOMOEOPATHY

No medical science is perfect in itself and all medical sciences are interdependent. Large tumors. Big renal calculi, Intestinal obstruction,Congenital deformities, Compound fractures Appendicitis threatening suppuration. If we go beyond limitation, serious complication may arise, and this may warrant a bad name to both the physician and the profession.


DR STUART CLOSE REMARKS

“I cannot be charged with having undue learning towards sugery, but there are times and place where good, skillful surgery is an absolute necessity. We must acknowledge that we have limitation.”


MISUSE OF SURGERY

The very ease and safety of operation has caused surgery to be abused to a great extent. Long list of small to medium size tumors, gangrene, hydrocephalus, Sinusitis, tonsillitis, vocal cord nodule, Benign mammary tumor, Benign hypertrophic prostate, Renal calcuil etc, if cannot be cured cent percent, can be curtailed to a great extent.


HOMOEOPATHIC APPROACH TO SURGICAL CASES

The basis of homoeopathic prescription is the totality of symptoms and applying the principle of similia, for this
1. The therapeutic principle must be very clear
2. A large number of remedies must be thoroughly prepared
3. Develop the Art of good case taking
4. Focusing attention, upon the individual
5. polishing the technique of prescribing
6. Skillful beside prescribing

CASE -1

A six month old, only child of the parents suffering from hydrocephalus and otorrhoea. He was under the treatment of a Neurophysician and ENT specialist. Discharge through ear stopped completely. In spite of the best efforts by the neurophysician. Size of the head was increasing, and downward deviation of eyes, a slight appearance of seizure was there.


PAST HISTORY

SURGICAL PLACEMENT OF VENTRICULAR SHUNT WAS ADVISED

Childs mother was aware of the possible complications as the discovered from the attendants of the children who have undergone shunting. She discovered that even after shunting, there was risk of over or under draining and to both congnitive and and physical development. In the mean time, child had high fever was given allopathic drugs, fever gone but child became unconscious. Homoeopathy was given a chance !

— Overall are features are suggestive of malignant Ovarian tumor possibly ADENOCARCINOMA
. — Once the bleeding stoped, girl was advised operation as the tumor was very big and to take homoeopathy after the operation as recurrence of tumor often take place.


PATIENT WAS ADVISED OPERATION :

HISTOLOGY REPORT

Tumor cells are in clusters and groups are separate by fibrous strands. Lymphocytic infiltration is present among the tumors cells and in fibrous bands.
— A-OVARY DYSGERMINOMA {cancer of ovary}
— WEDGE BIOPY-OTHER OVARY IS NEGATIVE
— OMENTUM not infiltrated by mailgnant cell
Patient was advised to come after surgery for homoeopathic Tt but she did not and after 2-3 months of operation, she had severe bleeding once again and was advised to go to All India Institute of Medical sciences for expert opinion and treatment


PATIENT AFTER three months of Operation

(CECT Abodmen and pelvis)
— Heterogenously enhancing right germ cell tumor ( 5×3 cm) solid cystic mass seen with its epicenter in the region of left adenexa.
— Superiorly the mass reaches the pelvis near to left psoas muscle.
— Impression known case of Germ Cell Tumor Right ovary (POST OPERATIVE)


PATIENT GOING TO THE CANCER HOSPITAL

Plan for first cycle B E P - Chemo therapy for germ cell tumor of ovary When she saw the bald headed faces in cancer ward, for the first time she came to know that, she has cancer.


HOMOEOPATHY CAME TO HER RESCUE

Great unhappiness
Depression
Nervousness
Loss of strenght
No desire to meet even her classmates


CONIUM MAC. 10M

every 10th day at bed time was prescribed.
Placebo 30 tds was prescribed.


INVESTIGATION DURING TREATMENT

Two physiological cyst of size 28×24 and 27×16 mm was seen in left adenexal region. Two cyst of 25×12 mm and 27×11 mm was seen in right adenexal region.


AFTER FIVE MONTHS OF TREATMENT

Menstrual cycle regularized
Uterus is normal in size and measures 6.8×3.8×3.2 cm. It is anteverted.
Uterine cavity is empty. Mymomentrium is homogenous. There is no mass or fibroid.
Left ovary is normal in size.
There was no adenexal mass and no retroperitoneal lympth node enlargement.


DISCUSSION

Cancer is not local but constitutional disease and the dreaded tumor is merely its local manifestation. The surgeon if he considers the growth malignant of suspicious employes the knife or radium. The result of this diversion or responsibility is disastrous to cancer patient. However they refuse to investigate the cancer cures of homoeopaths.
Homoeopaths have to their credit a large number of undoubted cures of cancer declared absolutely incurable.


CONCLUSION

One must never consider a case hopeless incurable.
The vast majority of operations are unnecessary & harmful. They respond rapidly and easily to homoeopathic treatment. A homoeopathic physician should be consulted in all surgical cases, before an operation is decided. There is unlimited power of repair with in us, which can be roused by right knowledge, right medicine, and constant encouragement and before all, by the determination of doctor to cure his patient.
