    May I take privilege to express my opinion about personal health care?  I am now 63 and throughout my life, I never cared for my health. I was so healthy that any wound that causes even spilling of blood will be cured within a day without medicine.

    Last December, 2010, all my confidence crumbled. I first had some trouble in taking food. I could not swallow even liquid items. I kept quiet till March,2011 till my daughter's marriage. After that, I experienced hell everyday by vomitting anything that goes to my mouth. Even water came out one night.

    Next day, I went to the hospital for checkup. They gave some medicines and it did not work. I went to a bigger hospital in Chennai where I underwent several scanning. They found that I was suffering with cancer and recommended to go to another specialist cancer hospital in Chennai.

    I approached the famous Apollo hospital, Chennai and got admitted there. For 14 days, I was given intensive treatment and all kinds of scanning were conducted. I felt that I was being rescued from my death !  Now, I feel confident that the disease will be fully cured in a few days. 

    My request to others is that personal health should be looked into carefully and over-confidence in this matter will aggravate the disease to its fatal end. It is better to get treatment then and there for any ailment then and there.
