Mumbai doctors remove 1.5 kg fibroid from 48-year-old woman’s cervix

Doctors in Mumbai have removed a 10-centimetre fibroid weighing 1.5 kg from a 48-year-old woman’s cervix after she complained of heavy bleeding.

The woman had undergone tubal surgery and two lower-segment Caesarean section (C-section) surgery for deliveries. After the deliveries, she complained of intense abdominal pain and menorrhagia or abnormally heavy bleeding during menstruation for the last eight months. Upon examination, Dr Rajashri Tayshete Bhasale, consultant gynaecologist, laparoscopic surgeon and obstetrician at Wockhardt Hospitals, Mira Road, found out about the cervical fibroid.

“Cervical fibroids are less common. Less than 1 per cent of women encounter this problem. These need skillful surgery as they are close to the ureter (pipe draining urine from kidney to bladder),” said Dr Bhasale.

Art Street: 19th-century Wellington fountain in Mumbai’s Colaba was erected in memory of the Duke’s visit

Standing still at one of the most touristy junctions in Mumbai, the Wellington fountain in Colaba’s Shyamaprasad Mukherjee Chowk is something that can be easily missed by the crowds of tourists and locals moving around. The 19th-century fountain that was set up to commemorate the visit of the first Duke of Wellington to India is, however, a listed heritage structure that was restored to its former glory in 2017.

Originally made of basalt with eight marble statues, its top tier is made of metal and has cast-iron leaves. The fountain also has inscriptions in Latin describing the achievements of the Duke. Erected in 1865, it was meant to memorialise the Duke’s visit to India between 1801 and 1804.

BMC: No reopening of Gokhale Bridge for pedestrians and vehicular movement

AFTER MULTIPLE speculations, the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) on Monday said that the Gopal Krishna Gokhale Bridge in Andheri, which has been shut since November 7, will not be reopened temporarily for pedestrian and vehicular movement.

Following the immense traffic chaos post the closure of the bridge, Mangal Prabhat Lodha, guardian minister of suburban Mumbai had announced that the structure may be reopened temporarily only after a technical inspection carried out by the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Mumbai and Veermata Jijabai Technical Institute (VJTI).
