Medical Care - Sakra World Hospital

My experience of Pulmonary Rehabilitation at Sakra World Hospital
1. I have been under treatment for pulmonary problems including COPD by Dr. Sachin of Sakra for over two years. I was doing very well under his treatment. 
2. During Feb-Mar 2018, I had to visit NCR twice for 10 days each within a gap of 30 days. 
3. I visited Dr. Sachin thrice during March-April due severe coughing and breathlessness. He admitted me for close monitoring. I was discharged in three days
4. I was also diagnosed with early stages of Fibrosis, in HRCT. Dr. Sachin advised treatment for Fibrosis after I regained strength and appetite. 
5. In addition, he suggested Pulmonary Rehabilitation (PR). I could barely walk without help due to extreme breathlessness and weakness. 
6. As a layman, I had reservations on PR, considering it to be an ‘allied venture’ of Sakra to make money. But, due to my faith in Dr.Sachin, I registered for PR att sakra during May‘18. 
7. I was assigned to Komal Agrawal for rehabilitation. She was extremely professional, kind and devoted to the assigned responsibility. She designed exercises incrementally, based on my weakness and requirement. 
8. I attended 18 sessions, three per week during May-Jul’18. In the beginning it looked harsh but results were encouraging. Sincerity of Komal and her efforts, encouraged me to repeat exercises at home also, as my condition improved. 
9. By the end of my sessions, I gained four kgs in two months and could walk and look after myself on my own. I couldn’t have even imagined such improvement when I registered for PR at Sakra. 
10. It was a pleasant surprise for me to go through PR. It is extremely useful for patients. Without going through it, one may not appreciate its importance and usefulness. 
11. I am thankful to Dr. Sachin to suggest it and grateful to Komal Agrawal, to look after my rehabilitation so diligently.
