In amazing incident shows the massive courage of a small girl. The 10-year old was playing Candy Crush on her uncle’s mobile while doctors were operating on her to remove a tumor from her brain in Chennai. As per Times of India, the girl was moving her limbs and talking during the operation. The girl named Nandini, a student of class V was brought to the SIMS hospital in the city with complaints of fits. The scan report showed a tumour in the vital part of the brain which is responsible for the movement of the left part of the body, the report added. Speaking to her family member, Dr Roopesh Kumar told them that there is a risk paralysis if the tumour keeps growing further.
“I did not want to go in for the conventional method of removing the tumour. It was in the sensitive part of the brain and if we accidentally touched a wrong nerve, it could cause complete paralysis of left half of her body,” he was quoted as saying by Times of India. As per the report, doctors operating her decided to do the same process by keeping the girl awake .
This kind of surgery is performed on nearly 2 percent on adult patients having brain tumours, but is rarely done on a child, Dr Suresh Bapu, director of SIMS Institute of Neurosciences told Times of India. He added that patients do not feel any pain as neurons in the brain do not have any pain receptors, the report added.
