I am writing on behalf of my patient Shaziya from Jalgaon, Maharashtra. I am her family doctor. Two years back She got pregnant and in 5th month of pregnancy she had severe pain in her abdomen. I recommended some gynecologists at Jalgaon who had no clue to what is happening to her. Sonography was done which showed huge ovarian cysts. Her condition kept on deteriorating day by day. As I was her family doctor, I suggested her family members to go to Mumbai, 450 km from Jalgaon and meet Dr. Niraj Mahajan, to whom I know only from his work in this field of gynecology which is published. I didn't knew him personally.
Same day She went to Mumbai by train and consulted Dr. Niraj Mahajan. He immediately admitted he and advised only two blood tests; thyroid and testosterone and his diagnosis was "Hyperreactio luteinalis" based on sonography findings. Dr. Niraj Mahajan spoke with me on phone and explained the situation after reports. Reports confirmed his diagnosis. He explained that this is self limiting disease and will resolve on its own in a month time. But her ovarian cyst kept on growing and her breathing difficulty increased day by day. All her relatives and me also wanted to terminate pregnancy because of her deteriorating condition. Also I spoke to some other senior doctors with the diagnosis in hand and her condition, all said only one thing; to terminate the pregnancy to save her life. But Dr. Niraj convinced all her relatives that he has already handled such cases although it is extremely rare to have such severe form of disease. He talked us all out of termination and took a calculated risk.
Seven days after admission, she was quite breathless at night so Dr. Niraj Mahajan performed surgery to treat ovarian cysts which is done in very rate cases. She was discharged after 8 days with thyroid medicine ad came back to Jalgaon. Her pregnany grew normally and when she was almost 9 months again we shifted her to Mumbai for delivery. As no doctors from Jalgaon was ready to deliver her with all her problems. She underwent Cesarean section as her labor was not progressing and delivered a healthy female child. Now she is two years old and she is very intelligent and I don't have any words to express my thanks. It was very complicated case and Dr Niraj Mahajan's work was unique and highly appreciable. We all keep in touch with him regarding her thyroid issues and he respond quickly and efficiently.
