At the beginning of June of 2013, I began to feel strong pain in my stomach together with constant evacuations. My mom took me to get medical attention at the General Hospital of Dorado Sinaloa where they administered some medications which were not adequate because the pain continued. The days passed and my stomach began to get swollen very rapidly and my mom got very worried and took me to the pediatric hospital of Sinaloa with Dr. Obdilia Gutiérrez, who told me to get several tests which were not favorable to my health. The doctor gave my parents very bad news and told them I had a germ cell tumor.
Later on, I began receiving treatment with chemotherapies at the pediatric hospital of Sinaloa where I received only 4 cycles until April 7, 2014, because Dr. Gutierrez referred me to the Pediatric Oncology Center of Baja California. Here Dr. Lozano followed-up on my oncological treatment and that is how I came to this beautiful hospital. The medical staff has treated me very nicely.
I am very happy because I am in the vigilance stage, that means that I go to my medical consultation each week and I also have laboratory tests done to check on my health at the Pediatric Oncology Center of Baja California, where I receive my treatment. Fortunately, Dr. Lozano says that I am responding favorably and I have just finished the remission stage. I am currently beginning the second induction phase at the hospital and I need to be frequently hospitalized. However, it is not as bad to be here at the hospital because I have a lot of fun at the play room.
