23/12/2019, Delhi: Anurag Mishra, a 47 years old man from New Delhi, India, was suffering from Multiple Sclerosis from the past seven years. This condition made him bedridden earlier but is back to his normal healthy routine life. His Multiple sclerosis (MS) was treated with bone marrow transplant (BMT) in India from Dr. Rahul Bhargava.

Anurag Mishra was diagnosed with Multiple sclerosis (MS) which is a disabling disease of the brain and spinal cord which affects the lifelong condition of the person as it is an autoimmune neurodegenerative disease, where body’s own defence mechanism system starts attacking its nervous system. Multiple Sclerosis s known to reduce life expectancy with serious disabilities.

The common symptoms of multiple sclerosis are loss of sensation and balance, restricted arm and leg movement, vision loss, bladder issue and dizziness. These symptoms were seen in Anurag Mishra’s condition.

Anurag Mishra faced the symptoms and was diagnosed with Multiple sclerosis. The line of treatment mainly includes physiotherapy, steroid therapy and symptom management. Doctors used bone marrow transplant (BMT) in India as in Anurag’s condition, which Dr. Rahul Bhargava considered the most common solution for the disease.

Dr. Rahul Bhargava, Director of Department of Clinical Hematology and Bone Marrow Transplant, Fortis Hospital, Gurugram, with the team performed this autologous bone marrow transplant by using Anurag Mishra’s own stem cells for transplantation. This in turn, helped him with reducing the chance of rejection and infection.

Dr. Rahul Bhargava said on the process that, “The Bone Marrow Transplant procedure reboots the immune system by reintroducing the stored hematopoietic stem cells. Chemotherapy is administered to reset the body’s immunity and then stem cells are injected back to rescue from the side effects of chemotherapy.”

For a few months, the patient is kept under isolation after the surgery to ensure doctors that the patient does not contract any infection. In Anurag Mishra’s case, he was totally dependent on others for his daily routine and after six months of the surgery, he is back on his legs and carrying on with his normal healthy life.

“The attack was sudden, and my dependency made everyone in my family to look after me. This disease gave me extreme pain and disabilities that were very scary and depressing. I never thought of getting into my original life, but I am very lucky that Dr. Rahul Bhargava and his team cured me miraculously.” Said Anurag Mishra.

The bone marrow transplant in India is a considerably effective process, and the clinical outcomes make the person recover rapidly. Mr. Anurag Mishra was lucky to get the recovery in recovery time-frame that has increased the rate of results to 90%. Too much delay can affect the recovery outcomes, so if anyone who has Multiple sclerosis should make an appointment with the doctor as soon as possible.” Dr. Rahul Bhargava said.
