Chhavi shared a picture from her hair wash session at the hospital before she got discharged. Alongside the photo, she wrote a note on how cancer should not become the reason for anybody to get gloomy. She wrote, “As per doctor’s orders, I had gone down to the salon at the hospital to get a hair wash. He recommended that it’s safer than trying to do it myself. I agreed. I wouldn’t deny that I was nervous and unsure, but only about whether I’d be able to walk that much… I was definitely looking forward to anything that would remotely make me feel normal!
Last evening I came back home and went for a late evening walk with my bestie coz again, I just wanted to feel normal. May I take a moment here and assert that cancer is not something ANYBODY is happy about getting. But if someone does get it, it shouldn’t be the reason to be morose, scared or uncertain or to stop living your life. In fact it’s all the more reason to live your life to the fullest! And for the care givers, these little things matter.. more than you think… to uplift someone’s mood and turn them away from the precipice of negativity.”
She further informed that her chemotherapy will begin soon and she is geared up for any challenge that she might have to face ahead. Chhavi added that she is taking baby steps to recovery. She added, “My surgery is behind me, I’ll take around a month to fully recover, then the treatment (chemo/radiation i don’t know yet) will begin, then the cancer meds and along with it a lifestyle change will be in order. Am I low? No. Am I up for this challenge? Hell yes! Jo hai dekhenge, aur kucch accha hi karenge! As for baby steps, I’ll get my nails done this week!”
Chhavi Mittal underwent a 6 hours long surgery to get rid of breast cancer on April 25. She has kept fans updated with everything through her social media posts.
