ANSH (BOY’S CHANGED NAME) WAS BORN:
A family in a town of Bulandshehar, India was excited, as the eldest son of the family became father of a boy. The mother and the child both were healthy hence happily discharged from the nursing home. The boy was named “Ansh” by his grandparents. Ansh had become the source of happiness in the family for every member.
Once, when Ansh was 6 months old, Ansh’s mother realized that his urinary opening is not at the tip of his penis, it was located beneath the usual opening. Therefore, she was worried a bit and discussed with Ansh’s father.
They reached to a conclusion to wait until Ansh is little older. The time elapsed and Ansh was now one year old, however he was healthy and used to act similarly what other kids of his age usually act but urinary problem was still present.
PARENTS WERE WORRIED AFTER REALIZING THAT ANSH HAS SOME ABNORMALITY WITH HIS PENIS:
Now the parents were worried as the abnormal urinary opening was significantly noticed and Ansh was showing some signs like spraying of urine, hanging foreskin, slight bend of penis in downwards direction. They decided to consult the paediatrician/ child specialist in their town at the earliest.
The Paediatrician suggested them to wait for another 3 to 4 years and convinced them that this problem will go on its own around the age of 5 years. Now the parents had some sense of relief knowing that their son is doing normal.
THE RIGHT OPINION AFTER BEING MISGUIDED FOR FIVE YEARS:
Cut to another 4 years, now the child was almost 5 years old and his problem of spraying of urine, sagging of foreskin, bent in penis persisted. Now parents could not ignore his symptoms, they started exploring the best child specialist in their town. They found one who explained them about Ansh’s problem; he was diagnosed with Hypospadias and suggested to consult a Urologist with no delays as they had already wasted five years.
The whole family including parents of Ansh lost all hopes now as they were being misleaded and misguided in these six to seven years. Actually, they were guided rightly for the very first time in these long years.
RECOMMENDATION FOR DR.GAUTAM BANGA, RECONSTRUCTIVE UROLOGIST
Now the time was to consult a Urologist as suggested by the paediatrician. The Urologist provided them a sense of huge relief by educating them about the treatment possibilities in case of Hypospadias.
The Urologist in their town explained that Hypospadias is treated surgically; it is good to operate in initial years only, also he explained the importance of expertise in operating a case of hypospadias. He further explained that a Reconstructive urologist is the right expert to deal with Hypospadias.
The Urologist suggested them Dr.Gautam Banga’s name for Ansh’s case.
