YATI comes from Jakarta, Indonesia. In May, 2018, the symptoms of pain and swelling in lower right abdomen occurred to her and she also suffered pain during menstruation. Therefore, she took examination in local hospital, which indicated there were tumors in ovary. Adopted the doctor’s suggestion, she took surgery and postoperative pathological biopsy confirmed the diagnosis of endometrial cancer. The result left the family in despair. They thought the tumor would be got rid of through surgery once and for all, while her condition was not improved afterwards and the resulting pain and bleeding recurred. So she decided to resort to other hospital.
However, YATI was also suggested take surgery again but her condition was still not improved at all. Two failed operation disappointed her. “Back then, I always cried myself, thinking of my worsening condition.” YATI said. Obviously, surgery is not the resolution.
Combined minimally invasive therapy gave endometrial cancer patient hope
YATI’s husband searched online about advanced cancer therapy and found St. Stamford Modern Cancer Hospital Guangzhou. With the company of her husband, YATI visited the Jakarta Office of St. Stamford MCHG and were informed of the technology and service of the hospital. “I was in rather critical condition with severe pain in abdomen. Through the consultation, we learned that there were advanced therapies for cancer, which cause less harm and fewer side effects to the human body. YATI said.

At the Jakarta Office, YATI also learned that many cancer patients in Indonesia also have been benefited from minimally invasive therapy, which gave her hope and she decided to go to China for treatment.
Minimally Invasive Therapy helped her defeat endometrial cancer
In August 12, 2018, with the company of her husband, YATI arrived at St. Stamford MCHG. The Multidisciplinary Team measured a treatment plan combining interventional therapy and particle implantation based on her condition. The first session of interventional therapy scared her and she was relieved after being comforted by the medical staff. “Upon the admission, I suffered from pain in abdomen. It has gone after the treatment and with five sessions of treatment, I got better condition since then. Compared with treatment in Indonesia, the minimally invasive therapy here causes less pain and fewer side effects. I gained weight and good appetite. My physical condition is quiet well.” YATI said with smile.

With five sessions of interventional therapy and particle implantation, YATI gained better condition and got rid of discomfort. The tumor in her pelvic lymph node and rectum disappeared.
Before the discharge, YATI expressed her gratitude towards medical staff and other cancer patients. She said,” First of all, I’d like to thank the hospital for giving me new life and happiness. Thanks would also be given to the medical staff, including the doctors, nurses and interpreters. They were surely of great help during my stay.
For other cancer patients, I want to say, just hang on there and never give up, you will get through it successfully. Best wishes for your recovery.
*Surgery, in addition to the appropriate chemotherapy and radiotherapy, are effective in treating early cancer, but certain patients in late stage of cancer may not be tolerate surgery well as they can be relatively weak. A combination of carefully planned minimally invasive therapy, chemotherapy or radiotherapy can effectively reduce the side effects and discomfort of treatment and may help patient get better efficacy.
